Bournda Lagoon Lookout – The spectacular beauty of Bournda National Park
Students will complete a simple sketch and identify important landmarks. A map will be used to mark each location that is visited including Bournda Lagoon, Bournda Beach and Bournda “Island”.

Bondi Lake Track to the Shelter Shed – A journey through history.
The Bondi Lake track has a wonderful history. Students will discuss how Aboriginal people used the natural environment and how traditional pathways connected important parts of the landscape.
