Yes, the Turramurra Music Camp has moved.
The time and location of the Turramurra Music Camp changed in 2022 from Summer in the Pennyroyal Valley to Autumn in the Rowsley Valley near Bacchus Marsh. Although we are sad to leave the Wildwood campsite in the Otways with its towering gums and King Parrots, it was necessary to find a larger site more accommodating of campers concerns about health risk and fire safety. We now enjoy welcoming woodland with a profusion of birdlife on Wadawurrung country near Bacchus Marsh. At the 2022 camp we were delighted to be welcomed to our new home by traditional owners and a wheeling chorus of Corellas.
Lady Northcote Discovery Camp
Lady Northcote Discovery Camp is located just over an hour's drive west of Melbourne, with sufficient workshop space and amenity to accommodate COVID restrictions. It has excellent facilities for camping and indoor accommodation, along with good quality kitchens and ablution areas. With a variety of accessible accommodation and workshop spaces we can now inclusive camp with something for all ages and levels of experience. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside including some excellent hiking nearby and is a hotspot for land regeneration and nature projects including the impressive Grow West initiative.
If you are camping and self catering you will need to come self contained. The nearest shops are in Bacchus Marsh, a 15 minute drive from the camp.
If you have booked bunk room accommodation you will need to bring your own sheets, blankets/sleeping bag, pillows and towels. A torch or head lamp is highly recommended to help with movement around the camp at night. And of course, bring your musical instruments and some music to share!!
Phone and Internet
Phone coverage is fair to good for most providers though some may need to hunt for a sweet spot. There will be a comms board and bush telegraph for old school networking so you could consider going phone free. We can dream!!
The long range weather forecast is for temps in the low 20s with periods of sun and cloud. Days may be warm, but evenings likely to be cool so come prepared to rug up. We suggest you pack a rain coat and brolly to be prepared for fun regardless of the weather.
