Year 11 Geography Excursion - Numinbah Valley

The Year 11 Geography class went on a one night camp to Numinbah Valley to study the Nerang River from its source in the mountains, to its mouth at the Gold Coast seaway. The students took part in some interesting fieldwork, including testing the water chemically and biologically and studying riparian vegetation. They had fun canoeing and swimming in Advancetown Lake before going on an, at times scary, night bushwalk to see the glow worms in a cave which was quite spectacular. On the final day we went to the top of the Q1 building to survey the Gold Coast and look at the damage that canals can cause. The students were well behaved and enjoyed themselves. ​
