The 18th Mullum Mullum Festival has come and gone!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 18th Mullum Mullum festival, held over the weekends of 28 and 29 April, and 5 and 6 May. We hope you enjoyed the sessions of more than twenty expert-lead walks and presentations and that we have left you with a greater understanding and appreciation of our beautiful native bushland and the environment as a whole.
We hope to see you at the 19th Mullum Mullum Festival, which will be held in the autumn of 2020
