RETREAT SCHEDULE *
This very special weekend away includes all of the below. Remember all activities are optional, so choose what suits you!
DAY 1 FRIDAY
Welcoming Circle on arrival.
Wangat means “a place where whispers are heard” in the local Gringai dialect. It is an ancient and special place and we want the first steps of our visitors to begin with purpose.
We will share a home made dinner together
“Frogging” and “spotlighting”
Wangat’s frog pond has been home to over 16 local species – we will see what we can find. This is a chance to hear, touch and identify these amazing amphibians. “Spotlighting” gives us a chance to see some of the many Australian mammals that only come out at night… bandicoots, pademelons, antechinus and possums to name just a few of the possibilities.
Campfire till bed
