About

Following on from the success of our ‘ReGen Weekender 2023’, we are excited to invite you to join us at the Wallaby Creek Festival site in Rossville for ‘Wallaby ReGen 2024’. 

Wallaby ReGen is about learning, exploring, sharing knowledge and wisdom. It’s about being a part of something greater: meeting new and old friends, hanging out in the chai tent or around a welcoming camp fire. It is an experience like no other. 

Offering new expansive ways of living in harmony with nature, our vision is to bring like-minded people together, sharing knowledge and evidence-based practices that focus on the regeneration of our environment, ourselves and our communities. We aim to challenge current methods of operating and ‘Be-ing’, encouraging us to think even bigger, together. It’s the place where being a plant nerd is cool!!

The flooding event  of Dec.’23 presented us with an entire new paradigm of living in the tropics. The scars on the hills and new landscapes are a constant reminder of the fragility of living in this region. It birthed a quest for answers, new thinking and new approaches to the way of life here in Far North Queensland

With presentations and workshops running onsite from Friday 3pm until Sunday 3pm, everything from plant nutrition & pest control, worm farms and toolbox farming to mushroom growing and composting will be explored: Something for all levels and interests. We will also be revisiting the food forest planted in ReGen 2023, looking at pruning and mulching methods and completing our Saturday workshops with the annual “Planting”. This year we will revegetate the creek line adjoining the land with native trees donated by ClimateForce. 

In addition to all the plant nerdy things, we have a space that focuses on the importance of the self and its intrinsic role in creating change. Without our inner connection and conscious awareness, the potency of any practice, no matter how dynamic, will never reach its potential.  We will be offering morning Yoga, along with Meditation, Toning and vibrant discussions on the concepts of regenerating your family and life around us… and much much more. 

There will also be cooking workshops on all 3 days where you can learn new methods of cooking with locally available food, including FNQ edible plants & weeds, local perennials and practice Nori/sushi rolling.

In addition, we have arranged to visit 2 farms in the Endeavour valley on the morning of Friday 19th July. 9 – 2pm

  • Dr Wendy Seabrook: Learning from Nature: “Eco-logical approach to Regenerative Agriculture 
  • Roman Jost: Organic farmer: Dragon Fruit & Passionfruit. 

 Do come and join us for a great weekend. Camping on site is available.
