Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

We went to canoe at Hazelwood Pondage.


The weather was great so as planned we set out to Hazelwood Pondage caravan park area.  To get there several methods of transport were used.

Some of the Guides push biked.  There were flat tyres, a chain broke and someone even blew out the back tyre.

Those who chose to roller blade found that they did not like travelling over the routes road surface.

The rest of us walked.

In the end we all managed to get a lift with the designated rescue car or we would not have made the canoeing activity at all.  The actual time it took to get everything sorted out at the beginning of the hike. Then of course their were the dawdlers and dreamers along the way. Those with bike problems not forgotten.

Luckily the parents had been arranged to come at the end of the canoeing activity and take the Guides and their equipment home.  Which was lucky as the wind came in really strong just as the last person went in their own front door.

This hike and kayak /canoe activity occurred at the end of summer of 2009.  As a leader I have not repeated the combination of a hike and canoe /kayakactivity.
