wollangara, mittagundi, typo?



sorry if its a bit long but please persist
does anyone know about or heard of Wollangara? dunno how interested anyone here will be but thought its worth a try.
Wollangarra is an independent non-profit outdoor education project established in the firm belief that young people and mountains are natural partners with a great deal to offer each other. The pioneer-style homestead, which serves as our base camp, is situated on a small, remote river flat of the Macalister River, half way between the towns of Heyfield and Licola. Wollangarra is a unique and simple place. It has no electricity, is accessed by flying fox and has been built by hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers using second hand recycled materials. Nearly 2000 old railway sleepers were used in the construction. It allows young people the opportunity to discover the heart of Victoria's high country in small, well organised and supervised hiking groups, and shows them practical and important ways in which they can help the environment.
im aiming this mainly at the older groupe with teenage kids if any here, other wise we could all be to old unless interested and go to their events. main ages are 14 - 18 of the planned hikes then anything else is organised by anyone. i found going helps a lot with any family, drug, relationship and any other probles that teenagers have to deal with.
