Last September we ran our first ever accommodated camp at Ross River Resort , it was a great success. Participants really enjoyed the combination of comfort, inspiring creative company and exploration, both of the terrain and media. So once again we offer this great opportunity to engage creatively with the Eastern end of the MacDonnell Ranges
Distinctly different from the better known West MacDonnells this eastern end of the ranges have a special feel … beautiful, rugged and wild but yes, somehow different. The tract of country between Ross River and Ndhala Gorge is particularly spectacular. We will take day trips into this country to make artwork and explore. We will also visit Trephina Gorge, John Hayes Rock Hole and Corroborree Rock as art making and photographic locations. We discovered in September that the area surrounding the resort has much to offer in itself, beautiful rock walls that are spectacularly lit by the late afternoon light. We took drives and walks out out into the surrounding country most evenings to enjoy this special time of day.
The cabins have a rustic feel but are very comfortable with air conditioning and a queen and single bed in each, plus ensuite. We had a private location for our marquee/studio and our own fire pit for communing in the evenings and enjoying the stars. The managing couple at Ross River , Lee and Graham are very friendly and helpful. Delicious meals will be provided by their expert staff. Drinks will be paid for separately.
