Curtin Springs

6 days/5 nights fully accommodated at Curtin Springs Station east of Uluru with a focus on making and working with paper. We will make our own paper using native grasses, experiencing the entire process from collecting the grass, boiling, blending and pressing, through to the finished paper. We will then work with the paper in different ways, experimenting with a variety of drawing, painting and collaging media, including those sourced from the environment; ochre, charcoal and rust. You will be encouraged and supported to find the ways to express yourself and your unique vision through the paper, from the earth up. more info & photos

Palm Valley

Palm Valley is one of the most fascinating and beautiful places in Central Australia, a remnant pocket of prehistory. It is famous for its lush palms and ancient cycads surrounded by towering red cliffs, but there is so much more to explore and draw upon in this area. Our exclusive campsite, with flush toilets, access to hot showers and large undercover work area, make this one of our most comfortable and popular locations. more info & photos

Karlu Karlu

Karlu Karlu is otherwise known as the Devils Marbles, an extraordinary series of rock formations near Tenant Creek, north of Alice Springs. Huge rounded boulders balance upon one another with gravity defying delicacy. It has a powerful resonance and huge cultural significance for a number of neighbouring Aboriginal groups. We plan to be there at full moon to take advantage of night painting and long exposure photography. A first time adventure for us too! more info & photos

Ruby Gap

Ruby Gap feels wild and adventurous, as it’s not an easy place to get to. The four-hour drive takes us deep into the East MacDonnell Ranges. We travel past Arltunga, with its remains of the gold rush era, then on an increasingly difficult 4WD track to the sandy bed of the Hale River with its abundant (tiny) garnets, which were originally thought to be rubies, hence the name. The campsite is nestled below majestic red cliffs. more info & photos
