Students will require group problem solving skills to negotiate the Whale Watch Platform, Spider Web and Planet Ooze. Students will have opportunities to reflect on their strategies and plans, with a view to enhancing the achievement of personal and group objectives. All Barambah programs require students to adhere to minimal impact practices in our outdoor context.
