There are education department schools in the bush where kids from all over the country can come to discover indigenous bush tucker, environmental secrets of the land, trek, tell stories – the Writers’ Camp happens once a year and 4 authors go bush.
Multi award winning Simon French who was one of the founders of the writing camp at Brewongle Environment Education Centre was there of course.
Deborah Abela and James Roy came this year and there was me. Even award winning illustrator Donna Rawlings dropped in.
James Roy brought his ukele and Steve – one of the fabulous staff – brought his guitar and kids joined in.
