A weekend of camping at Lake Catani Campground and walking along some of Mt Buffalo’s iconic tracks, with rest stops along the way for snacking and singing easy songs in 2-4 part harmony.  Day visitors are also really welcome!

Mid- to late-afternoons will be free for other activities… walking with a friend, swimming in the lake, reading a book, taking a nap, going for a drive, or volunteering to run an informal activity, which might include a song swap or group stretch session.

Depending on the evening weather, and being mindful of other campers, we might gather around a campfire or in the hut for some gentle singing, story-telling, poetry and other spell-binding moments of good-humoured sharing.

Bernadette has offered to co-ordinate a shared meal on one of the nights, so we’ll keep you posted on what to bring.

Our communal campfire area is site 45, the cost of which will be divided between campers (around $5-10 depending on numbers) and it might work well to have all our campers book around sites 36-46, but of course you can camp anywhere that takes your fancy.

You could also stay at one of the nearby caravan parks and drive up on the days you want to join in.
