Hoadley Hide 2018

This year Hoadley Hide is proudly hosted in and around Rowallan Scout Camp and Mt. Charlie Flora Reserve (Parks Vic)

What is Hoadley Hide?

We trust that the Venturers will enjoy “Breached” and all the support staff will enjoy running the event.

…. and into the breach they go.

Dormitory Heating

We are proud to announce that we have installed Hydronic Heating to our Dormitories and Toilet block for your comfort.
Overnight heating to 15 degC will reduce the chill factor on our cold Winter nights.

Internet Use @ HQ Camp

We have been offering free wifi Internet access to our campers for the last 18 months.
However to due to the sustained abuse / over use by campers we have been forced to discontinue this service.
If any group camping with us would like Internet access whilst at camp, then this can be made available if arranged via the Booking office in advance of your camp. WiFi coverage is limited to the dinning room and is Wireless-G.
The fee for such access is $15 per GB downloaded, or part thereof.
If you think this is unreasonable, please lobby Telstra and the local MP for NBN access in Mt. Charlie Rd/Kent Rd.
Our only possible Internet access is via Telstra 3G at this time.

Thank you for your understanding.

Water Quality @ Rowallan Camp

Further to the Resource Saving work previously undertaken, we have recently redesigned the Water filtration system to filter all Camp water, and to store the filtered water before use.
This has greatly increased our capacity to deliver clean water to all areas of the camp at the required pressure.
Note, the water is slightly discoloured, but it is clean from a health perspective.

Energy and Resource Saving Initatives

Recently we have implemented 2 resource saving systems saving both electricity and water.  We have installed a Grid Connected Solar system and are harvesting rain water for use around HQ camp.
This water is augmented by water from Mt Teneriffe Dam in times of low rainfall.

The Solar system installed by Solar Charge is a 2.04kW system comprising 12 panels.

 

 

The Rain water harvesting system includes 130KL of storage, collects water from 686m2 of roof, is UV treated and filtered for use around the camp.
