Camp Facilities

Camp facilities at The Crossing are unique.  The Crossing is a permaculture designed sustainable camp.

Student’s experience sustainable design, water conservation and renewable energy.

Students harvest from the organic gardens, tend the animal systems and live a true farm-to-table experience.

Journeys to and from the camp into surrounding National Park include habitat survey and Landcare as part of a ‘journey into sustainability’.

The Crossing is situated near Bermagui, Australia, on a riverfront bush setting of the Southern NSW Wilderness Coast.  Biamanga National Park adjoins the camp and The Crossing has the support of the Park’s aboriginal owners for camping and research. The camp is a traditional crossing place on the Bermagui River.  Young people make a crossing into adulthood here; learning ways to contribute to the environment & community.

Numbers: We can accommodate group sizes up to 30 with larger groups possible for regional gatherings with tent camping.
