Didgeridoo Camp 17 - 19 May 2024

3 Day Didgeridoo Weekend

We are extremely happy to announce that the 17th Didgeridoo Camp will be held on 17 – 19 May 2024. Didgeridoo camp is a three-day Didgeridoo event where men and boys of all nationalities connect brotherhood and celebrate life and our passion for the Didgeridoo. Just bring your camping gear (tent - caravan - camper - swag) and didgeridoo. We look after all the other stuff. The Didgeridoo workshops and live performances are done by two of Australia’s legends MARK ATKINS and WILLIAM BARTON.



We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this land the Yuggara and Ugarapul people, the protectors of the land on which we are gathering. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present and may we always walk together as one.


NOTE: ONLY 50 TICKETS AVAILABLE -  Bookings are essential.

Acknowledged as one of Australia’s finest Didgeridoo players, Mark Atkins is also recognised internationally for his collaborative projects with some of the world’s leading composers and musicians. A descendant of Western Australia’s Yamitji people, as well as of Irish/Australian heritage, Mark Atkins is known not only for his masterly playing, but also as a storyteller, composer, percussionist, visual artist and instrument maker. Through Mark’s lips the air blows as a natural desert sound, in old ethnic chants and in polyphonic melodies of astonishing rhythms..

William Barton is widely recognised as Australia’s leading didgeridoo player as well as a highly esteemed composer, instrumentalist, and vocalist. He has performed as a solo artist as well as collaboratively with orchestras, string quartets and mixed ensembles, traditional dance groups and fusion/rock jazz bands performing with his own works, others work, and improvisation often inspired by his surrounds at the time. William has a strong desire to give back to his culture, people, and community. One of his greatest enjoyments is his involvement in workshops with schools and children all over Australia, where he teaches the next generation didgeridoo and storytelling.

The weekend also includes the opportunity to make your own Didgeridoo. We'll guide you through the process of making your own eucalyptus Didgeridoo to take home with you. The Didgeridoos we use during our workshops are authentic and naturally hollowed out by termites. No living trees or animals have been harmed or damaged in the process. We use quality Red, yellow and Grey Box Eucalyptus logs for our workshops; they are seasoned and ready to be carved. Learn how to make your own didgeridoo that includes: stripping, sanding, chiselling, painting, tuning, and making a mouthpiece out of natural beeswax. All equipment, tools and safety wear are supplied.
