What to bring:

You'll need to bring camping gear, cooking equipment, and all the food/water/snacks you'll need for the weekend. Walks are often off-track through the bush, we recommend bringing sturdy hiking shoes, rain-jackets and warm clothes (even in the warmer months it can be cold and rainy in the area!).

The campground is about an hour north of the main Bonang Highway from Orbost. Orbost is the last stop for food and fuel so make sure you grab everything you need. There's no reception at the campground, but there's a phone box and free Wi-fi outside the local community hall further up the road from the campground. We'll be emailing our COVID safe policy through to all RSVP's closer to the date, with a final program.

Offering or needing a lift? Head to the discussion section of the Facebook event for carpooling

RSVP to the event below.
We can't wait to see you all! See you at the campground at 6pm on Friday for a run-down of the weekend!

 

 

This event is taking place on the stolen lands of the Bidewell and Monero First Nations Peoples where sovereignty was never ceded. We acknowledge their long and ongoing custodianship of the land and pay our deepest respects to Elders past and present.
