About The Crossing Land Camp
The Crossing Land Camp has the feeling of a remote bushland property, but the great thing about our permaculture camp is that it is only 15 minutes drive from the vibrant coastal town of Bermagui. The 24ha (50acre) property is perfectly located; adjacent to farmland (the site of our large Landcare Project) and between coastal National Parks with direct access to the Bermagui River. We Spectacular wilderness coastline walks are also a close drive away or accessed as part of 2 or 3 day walks from the camp.
Biamanga National Park adjoins the property. The Crossing has the support of the Park’s Aboriginal owners for camping and research.
Our property is a traditional crossing place on the Bermagui River. Young people make a crossing into adulthood here; learning ways to contribute to sustainable design and conservation.

(in our converted train carriage bunkhouse)
Our converted train carriage bunkhouse is great example of recycling!
The carriage was on the old Gippsland line from Melbourne to Bairnsdale, and dates to the 1930’s! We know because we found an old ticket in one of the rooms.
The bunkrooms are cozy and comfortable with verandah access and heating powered by our wood-fired hydronic system.
The three 1930’s train carriage bunk rooms each sleep eight students, with an additional bunkroom of four students next to the train carriage.
