Travel advice

Thursday 26th May Group ONE & FOUR.

Friday 27th May Group TWO & THREE

Travel Advice is the same for both days.

Leave Southern Cross Station at 9.15 am Arrive Bendigo Station at 11.13am.
It takes approx. 12minutes walk to the Bendigo Gallery from the station. Bring umbrella if weather forecast predicts rain?

Return Train Leaves Bendigo Station at 14: 26 (2.26pm) arrives Southern Cross station at 16:26 (4.26pm )

Some staff will be at Southern Cross Station and will also be traveling by train. Each student will need to purchase their own tickets So make an allowance (enough time ) so you don’t miss the train. I am sure you can buy V/Line tickets at major rail stations eg. such as Caulfield.

If you go on line V/Line has a list of metropolitan stations (maybe close to you) You can purchase you Bendigo tickets. Otherwise they can be purchased at Southern Cross Station.

Camp Krusty 2011

If there is enough demand, I will print, out maps beforehand.

The Photos from the 2009 Camp

Here’s some photos from the 2008 camp.

The Camp site is in a place called Tanybryn, about two and a half hours west of Melbourne. Here is a link to a map, that you can download and print out that gives written instructions on how to get there, as well as this map courtesy of google.

When to get there

We have booked the camp from, 1:00pm Monday-10:00am Wednesday.

About the camp

The Tanybryn campsite currently contains 2 buildings, a “rec” room, with pool table, table tennis table, a fireplace, 2 stoves, gas electric and a refrigerator, some couches and chairs, the couches convert to beds, and last but not least a fireplace. Obviously there is electricity, however, there is NO mobile phone reception.

The second building is the “dorm”. This is really 4 rooms with 3 bunk beds in each. Which means the camp sleeps 24 in total, of course people sometimes sleep on floors and as I said some room is available on the floor and couches in the “rec” room. Each room in the dorm block has an on-suite bathroom and toilet.

About Tanybryn & The Otways

Tanybryn is situated in the Otways a sub tropical area of Victoria, this area has HIGH levels of RAINFALL compared to the rest of the state ALL year round. It WILL rain when we are there, at least once per day, probably more. The frequency and quantity of the rain will be the unknown. So bring wet weather gear, as well as solid shoes.

A feature of the area is the waterfalls. Therefore there will be ample opportunity to photograph in these locations. If you have a particular waterfall or feature of the area you wish to photograph, let us know we can all head out together and check it out.
