Winter Extended Open Day @ Narara Ecovillage

Join our Extended Open Day at the Turn of the Seasons: 31 August 

As days start to lengthen, we are offering our seasonal ‘extra’ with an extended welcome on Saturday 31 August. Our program runs from 10am through to 4ish. If you are peckish or pushed for time and forgot the picnic, our coffee cart offers lunches, lattes and lots more. 

This program is perfect for a first visit but there is the option to book an overnight camp site for a small fee. You can then join whatever is happening. Please let our camping host, Dan, (daniel.mohr@nararaecovillage.com) know if you would like to self-cater and stay.

  • 1.30pm: Toasting the Tool Library – official opening of our newest shared resource for members. NB Our Community Creatives will be in action from 10am at Farm Square repairing, repurposing and chatting with anyone who turns up!
  • 2.00 – 3.30pm: Tiny House Tours – Check in with Chris and explore Mayflower
  • 2.00pm: Exploring the Edges – walk with Trevor into the Strickland Forest and back via the Rural Lots – leaving from Farm Square
