Educational Resources

Moreton Experience Field Book

A 20 page field book is provided to each student. Topics include; map, dune plant communities, birds, mammals, useful native plants, exotic plants, feral animals, rocky shore animals, behaviour of freh and saltwater when in layers, Nughi people, early Europeean history, and a time line.

Teachers are encouraged to work with students on topics of interest to them and their students.

During excursions away from camp I introduce students to relevant sections of the book.

The Reluctant Explorers

The timbergetters, Phamphlet, Finnegan and Parsons were shipwrecked at Spitfire Creek in 1823. A narrative of their ordeal was recorded after their rescue by Oxley. A class set of an illustrated, abrdged version of this narrative prepared by Moreton Experience is read at Spitfire Creek.
