Last Thursday, 5th Class went to Bobbin Head and learnt about the history that shaped the National Park. First we used a compass to orienteer the direction of North on a map of the park. Next we used the iPads to take some pictures of the landscape. After that we went on a bushwalk past mangrove trees, where we saw numerous species of crabs. On the top of the escarpment, our Guide told us about the Indigenous people who had once inhabited the land. We saw a rock carving in the shape of a man. The man symbolises a warning of STOP to all people who enter the land.  Then we continued walking into a small rainforest where we had lunch in a relaxing, cold area. On the way back we learnt about how Park Rangers put down bait to stop foxes eating the Southern Bandicoots which are endangered. It was a wonderful trip and we would like to go there again.
