All praise to Uncle Doug and the Supernatural Custodians who have spent years refining the festival site into a purpose-built Underground Wonderland.
25 years of collective know-how, and wild ambition married with a deep practical genius, means that sweet little parcel of land that hosts Meredith is now maturing into Everything We Hoped She Would Be.
The 26th will have hundreds of new trees as part of Uncle Doug’s Native Planting: in the shower compounds we are planting Kunzea ericoides, Goodenia ovata and Correa reflexa. These are bushy plants that grow white, yellow and red flowers.
In Tom Mankeys and Bush Camp: some Banksia marginata, Bursaria spinosa, Eucalyptus yarraenensis, Eucalyptus viminalis, Melaleuca lancelolata, Rhagodia spinescens, Callistemon seiberi and Acacia melanoxylon – different sized trees for good camping shade. And in South Pines: 29 Black She-oaks.
