Camp Out Collage

We aim to capture the ‘Camp Out on the Mount’ spirit by encouraging everyone to engage with our special ‘Camp Out 2021’ web pages, and inviting you to contribute to our ‘Camp Out Collage’. Each page focuses on one of the elements that make the Camp Out special:

  • Camping out (of course!)
  • Caring for the land.
  • Loving Leanganook.
  • Connecting with Indigenous culture.

To access the pages, click on the picture links below.

For each contribution you make to the ‘Camp Out Collage’ you will be entered into the draw to win a prize. Please note that you are only eligible to win the prizes if you live in Australia, and some of the prizes (such as the nest box and plants) will only be available for properties in the Mount Alexander region of central Victoria.

You may send in a maximum of four entries (i.e., one entry for each element). The four elements are: ‘Loving Leanganook’, ‘Connecting with culture’, ‘Caring for the land’, and ‘Camping out’.
