Our Permaculture Site

Mission: Developing Youth Leadership in Sustainable Design

Core Values: Community Contribution, Responsibility and Active Conservation

 Location: The Crossing is situated near Bermagui, on a riverfront bush setting on the Wilderness Coast of Southern NSW.  Biamanga National Park adjoins the camp and The Crossing has the support of the Park’s Aboriginal owners for camping and research. The site 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.
