Accommodation & Meals

Cobb and Co House, our base for the weekend

We will be based at the old Cobb and Co House, right in town, within walking distance to everything. Classes will be held there and in the church opposite. Friday night dinner, breakfasts and lunches will be provided. There are also options to buy meals and snacks in town and at the Blackwood Festival site on the oval.

Participants will be mainly camping, but there are some beds available for those who book early and request them, or on a needs-based approach.

All allergies and preferences are catered for, but please let us know upon booking.

If you prefer, you can book at the beautiful Mineral Springs Caravan Park for a small fee. Try AirBnB for other accommodation options.

Accommodation in Blackwood itself is limited, so book early!

The Blackwood Ranges

Blackwood is 80kms from Melbourne. If driving, take the Western Hwy toward Ballarat and exit at Blackwood, Greendale & Trentham (C318), then follow signs through the town of Greendale to Blackwood

The nearest railway station is Ballan on the Ballarat line. There will be a shuttle bus operating over the Blackwood Festival weekend, so to arrange a pick-up, call the driver Kath (before the weekend!) on 0419 507 338.

You can also take the Ballarat bus directly from Melbourne Tullamarine Airport and get off at Ballan.
