Please, all and any local Australian groups out there - feel free to use this area of the forum to publicise your local activities. We are a real community and it helps to get to know each other "in the flesh". Who else, other than other Camino tragics, wants to listen to your endless stories?

To help, here are links to all the websites for Australian Camino groups of which I am aware. If there are others (non-commercial) out there, send me a PM and I will add them to the list, so keep checking back.

Hi @movinmaggie but that would go in the North America section, I think, not the Australian and New Zealand section! Do you want me to post it for you there?

Thanks Doug, I've changed the link, hope it works.

The organisers and supporters created a truly great event at the AusCamino Festival. Even the horribly wintery weather in summer didn't reduce people's enthusiasm. It was an excellent opportunity for newbies right through to very well experienced pilgrims to learn more and spend time together. Congratulations to all concerned!

Yes, Julie-Ann gets the gold star for wonderful work - everyone loves her hospitalero courses, they sound really fun. And I hope they translate into lots of Australian hospitalero/a volunteers!

Over the weekend I attended the first AusCamino Festival in Blackheath. It was a very full weekend, preceded by two days of hospitalero training and walks, with some great speakers, different workshops and events, and a wonderful way for all the different Camino communities in Australia to come together. There were people from all over - Darwin, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and NSW. Even someone from Perth and one from Canada. There was a great representation from the Australian Friends of the Camino, from the Pilgrims in Sydney, and the Blue Mountains group who were instrumental in getting it up and running. Hopefully it will become an annual event in Blackheath - provided the organisers have the fortitude to do it all again! A great thank you to Margaret and Rowan Boutrell of Glenella, to Tony Jacques and the Blue Mountains group, and to all the wonderful volunteers.

I think that has added both Sunshine Coast. @gerardcarey I think the Brisbane Group is already there. Let me know by PM if any of the links are wrong or broken.
