The trip was organised as part of a Parks Victoria program to connect diverse communities to parks. The 27 students from the Karen people (of Burma) spent four days camping at Tidal River where they swam, climbed Mt Oberon, went for walks and went fishing in the river. They also spent time with Indigenous ranger Luke Johnson, who shared his knowledge about the park and showed them how to throw a boomerang. Luke said it was great to see the students having such a good time in the park, especially as many of them had not experienced the coast before.View post | Thu, 10 Jul 2014 16.27
