Spring Bay Mill was once home to the world’s largest wood chip mill, this 43 hectare waterfront site in Triabunna, Tasmania has been taken over by a bunch of provocateurs intent on charting a more sustainable path. Spring Bay is on the lands of the Paredarerme tribe and is a place of extreme beauty and stark, rugged landscapes.
We curate eclectic events across art, music, history, politics and ecology, providing a tranquil back-drop for pondering big problems and big solutions. Read more.
