It's not just for adults. Bring your kids and your tent. If tenting isn't for you, look at accommodation in nearby Healesville. Leave your pets at home as there is a plethora of wildlife in and around Moora Moora that the community protects.

Activites for kids include: Bow and Arrows, Dreamcatchers and Sensory Sand Art Play, Lilly Pilly Green from the Zucchini Clan will be roaming around for the kids. Just being in this beautiful space will provide the kids with ample places to explore and connect with nature. It's a good chance to get them off those screens and interact with the family. All children under 15 have free entry.

Have you ever wanted to live off-grid?
There will be a series of talks and tours given on how Moora Moora achieves this. If you like what you see enquire about purchasing a house.

This is a richer version of 'just getting away for the weekend'. A unique chance to get away from the city and the rat race, relax and have a fantastic time.
