Over the weekend, 18 residents headed down south to participate in Trinity’s inaugural Challenge and Chill Weekend. The residents stayed in the picturesque Dunsborough region and participated in a range of events across the weekend, designed to both challenge them, but also provide some chill time!
The group drove down Friday and spent the afternoon exploring Ngilgi Cave in Yallingup. After caving, the group had a BBQ dinner with a campfire overlooking the beach to wind down for the day.
On Saturday, the residents rode from Geographe Bay to the Old Dunsborough Boat Ramp, and after morning tea, kayaked back from the Boat Ramp to Meelup Beach. Some very speccy scenery for our exchangers! After lunch in Dunsborough, it was chill time in the afternoon with visits to lots of the region’s most well-known food and drink destinations! The Margaret River Cheese Factory, Vasse Felix, Yahava Koffeeworks, Margaret River Chocolate Factory and finally Bootleg Brewery topped off a delicious afternoon!
Sunday held the most challenging activity of the weekend, a high-ropes course in the Tuart Forest. The staff only managed to get a few meters off the ground, but most of the residents were game enough to try the highest course - complete with bike riding at heights - 15m off the ground! After lunch, the group then made their way back to Perth.
All-in-all, the weekend was a great opportunity for some of our exchangers to see the beautiful South West region and get to know some of the staff a little better. We can’t wait to do it again next year! Our Instagram shows just a few of the highlights from the weekend, check out the scenery here!
