Thanks to the ongoing support of Trillion Trees we are excited to start the restoration process for the surrounds of Wave Rock and bring it back to it’s former beauty.
Sheenagh Collins is a landowner located in Hyden, working to repair a degraded section of land on her property. Significant past clearing of much of Western Australia’s native bushland has caused serious environmental issues including salinity, soil erosion and the loss of native fauna habitat. This partnership will assist Sheenagh to continue her goal of restoring this degraded area to a biodiverse Eucalypt woodland.

You can be sure that our famous farm-field mobile DJs will be back! Bringing the high-vibe tunes to elevate your day of planting and keep you grooving while you restore the land.
Evenings at HQ will be a treat for your ears – funky live bands, pumping DJs, talented vocalists, jam sessions and camp-fire sing-alongs galore!

Leave your camp stoves at home, our legendary Kitchen Witches have got you covered; all your meals for your entire weekend are provided!
They will be nourishing us all with freshly made, almost entirely organic, healthy, and delicious meals made with care and love. Dietary requirements will be catered for. The absolute best way to end a day of planting together is to gather for a wholesome communal meal together.

KATTER KICH & LAKE MAGIC
Katter Kich is a true WA icon. Spanning a massive 110 meters long, this nature’s wonder is thought to be 2,700 million years old. It is the north face of a larger rocky hill known as Hyden Rock.
Katter-Kich has strong cultural connections for the Noongar people who used this extraordinary place as a meeting place. About 20 minutes drive north of Hyden is Mulka’s Cave in The Humps Nature Reserve, which has a wealth of Aboriginal rock art with over 450 individual items from hand stencils to paintings and motifs.
We will be planting a few kilometres away from Katter Kich, around Lake Magic, which is a naturally occurring salt lake with gypsum minerals at its base and a sandy, circular beach surrounding it. The water is clear, but very salty, even if you can’t swim, you wont sink.
Over the weekend, you’ll have the privilege to see the changing colours over this incredible landscape, wake early to see the sunrise at the lake, and experience the sunset over the rock.
