Join Maurie Foun at his Upper Murray property for a uniquely Australian experience of camping, cooking, live music and bush poetry. Enjoy the wonderful camaraderie that comes with open fire cooking and campfire jams, set against a magical mountain backdrop.

Roll in from 10:00am on Saturday, with entertainment starting early afternoon until late, including music from ‘Piano Wizard’ Andrew Farrell, a live rendition of Banjo Paterson’s Man from Snowy River, bush poetry walk-ups and yarn spinning.

With the camp oven at the heart of the weekend’s meals, expect hearty, belly-warming fare, available for Saturday lunch and dinner and Sunday breakfast and lunch. Meals are available by donation, or bring your own camp oven and food (firewood provided).
