The next Bimblebox Camp will be

3 – 13 of September, 2015.

Would you like to get to know the Bimblebox Nature Refuge?  Do you want to experience for yourself this woodland refuge in the desert uplands of the Galilee Basin?  The Bimblebox Nature Refuge is under threat from coal mining, but for the moment it is a haven for the plants and animals that have coexisted there for thousands of years.

If you are interested in spending up to ten days on the Bimblebox Nature Refuge this is your opportunity.  Immerse yourself in this piece of never been cleared woodland.  Camp in the Australian bush to hear the rustling and call of the night creatures beneath that starry trail we call the milky way and wake to the exquisite dawn bird chorus.

The Bimblebox camp is open to artists, musicians, scientists, writers, as well as anyone interested in getting to know the Bimblebox Nature Refuge.
