Welcome to the Far South Coast, ‘The Wilderness Coast’ – on the edge of tide, farm and forest.
The Crossing is a not-for-profit, environment education camp near Bermagui, NSW, Australia – a specialist camp with a permaculture design. The camp only hosts one secondary or tertiary class at a time.
Our staff and volunteers develop leadership and help young people put sustainability into action. We role-model sustainable design with renewable energy, water conservation, and second-use materials.
Outdoor education journeys at The Crossing include: hiking, canoeing and mountain biking. Educational activities include: Landcare, sustainable farming, organic gardening, conservation survey and operation of regenerative (short-rotation) animal systems.
Biamanga National Park adjoins the camp and The Crossing has the support of aboriginal owners for camping and research.
The Crossing is an ancient crossing place on the Bermagui River – once the main coastal road and a pathway for aboriginal people. Young people still make a crossing here; learning ways to contribute while crossing into adulthood!
The Sea to Snow Crossing, our biggest journey, is open to Year 9-11 students – 250kms of education for young people crossing all altitudes in Australia.
