Entheogensis Australis is delighted to announce that its much-loved outdoor Psychedelic Symposium will return in 2017, taking place from Friday 8 December to Sunday 10 December 2017.
The 2017 Psychedelic Symposium will utilise two venues, including a new state-of-the-art conference space located in the Goulburn Valley region - Holmesglen at Eildon. Located an easy 2 hr drive from Melbourne within rural Victoria, Australia, the main conference facility is nestled into a native bush mountain range on one side, and open to expansive views of the valley below. 2017 will see EGA’s much-loved outdoor auditorium return, supported by immersive outdoor spaces filled with art installations, market stalls, on-site catering and a bar. There is also an indoor academic symposium space to complement the main outdoor auditorium.
Camping access will be included in the ticket price for all ticket holders (camp site), with an array of options to upgrade accommodation for those seeking a weekend away with all the creature comforts or extra privacy.
Spanning two lush venues, shuttle busses will transport attendees the short distance between sites. Accommodation options for 2017 will include camping sites near the water, under the shade of trees, and with access to camp kitchens and other facilities, as well as optional dorms and cabins with ensuites and kitchettes for those who desire them. The main camp ground also features an onsite general store and is located a leisurely 10 minute walk from town (Eildon), with the EGA shuttle busses also regularly stopping via town. For those looking to travel light, we are also able to offer all-inclusive on-site catering options, or luxury accommodation located just a few hundred metres from the main conference facility, - allowing you to really relax and kick back to enjoy the weekend. For those of you that find alternative accommodation in the local area, you will need to meet the shuttle busses in town or at the campground, both with ample parking space before heading to and from the site each day..
The 2017 Psychedelic Symposium will continue to cater to the large number of attendees wanting to camp and self-cater, as we know many enjoy the aspect of a weekend away amongst the trees as part of attending EGA.
With the 2017 Psychedelic Symposium opening on Friday 8 December and closing late after dinner on Sunday 10 December, attendees are welcome to stay on in accommodation and camping till Monday 11 December – to create your own four day, EGA long weekend. It worth noting for these who have not been to an outdoor EGA before it’s worth noting that programming will run till approximately 11pm every night - including Sunday 10 December and take place in an outdoor open air Auditorium. So you can expect exposure to the elements.
