Bushtime is an inspired camping holiday held on a 500-acre parkland located in the Moreton Bay Region Hinterland, on Jinibara Country, just over one hour north of Brisbane.

We hope it will be a unique camping experience for you, where whilst enjoying a slower pace of life, you are able to treat yourself to the delights on offer. Imagine sunset concerts, learning a new skill at a single or intensive multi-day workshop, getting your hands dirty through the citizen science talks and demonstrations, enjoying some of our many self-led activities exploring the site which is brimming with abundant flora and fauna.

We look forward to gathering as a community again and walking just a little more gently on this planet. We hope to see you at Bushtime soon.

Tickets for Summer Bushtime events are now available here. The Programme is available now, with more workshops and free Citizen Science elements added as they are confirmed.
