Bedrock is an invitation to investigate your curiosity, to journey into a deeper state of connection and awareness – to Live the Wild.

We sit in the presence and magic of The Rock, under the towering escarpment and the mysterious gums.

Bedrock invites men of all ages who are open to new learnings and seeking to deepen their maturity, their relationships, and have fun, and dine on exquisite food! Men attending will need to have experience “sitting in circle” and exploring deeply into their experiences. For this reason, we do not see Bedrock as suitable for a man’s first dip into men’s work.

What is Bedrock?

Bedrock is hosted by our Elders Circle and is largely unstructured.

During Bedrock, conversations go where they need to go. What needs to be discovered and revealed – happens. We sit in the presence and magic of The Rock, under the towering escarpment and the mysterious gums.

This invitation is to men of all ages who are open to new learnings and seeking to deepen their maturity, their relationships, and have fun, and dine on exquisite food!

Bedrock is limited to 50 participants and promises to be full of meaningful experiences, frivolity (sometimes known as playfulness), musical sensation, poetry, and shared wisdom. Beneath the majesty of The Rock join us in the Round House in the presence of a thousand stories.

This year we are again extending our invitation for fathers and grandfathers to bring their young men who have completed their rite of passage. This is an incredible opportunity for young men, their dads and all of us to share a unique space and learn from each other!

Getting there

Because Bedrock is on private land that cannot be reached from a public road, we run a “Muster”. The venue and start time given here is in fact the location and meet time for the muster at Fernvale.

The Muster is for:

  • Drivers who do not know their way to The Rock (878 Mount Byron Road is merely the closest street address, but still nowhere near the campsite!)
  • Drivers of 2WD cars because they will need to transfer to a 4WD at some point
  • Drivers of 4WD who want to help out.

If you are making your own way to The Rock, just ensure you arrive in time to set up camp before first meal at 6PM.

There are two muster points:

The first muster point is Fernvale in the car park behind the Old Fernvale Bakery. The bakery comes up on all GPS units, but the address is the corner of Brisbane Valley Highway and Simpson Street. Turn into Simpson Street and the car park is on your right. Arrive by 3:00PM on Thursday because we leave at 3:10PM sharp.

The second muster point is the turn-off from Wivenhoe-Somerset Road onto Mount Byron Road at 4PM. We meet men coming from Kilcoy and Esk at this point. Arrive by 4:15PM.

2WD cars are okay on Mount Byron Road but from the end of the road 4WDs will be used to ferry men to the campground. The track is in very poor condition after this summer’s floods.

What you will need

The Rock offers three forms of accommodation, and you will need to choose when you book.

The Cliff House – a small, split-level cabin with a wood heater, with single bunk beds. You will need to bring your own bedding.

The Bunk House – single bunk beds protected from the weather by a steel roof and canvas walls. You will need to bring your own bedding.

The Campsite – you will need to bring everything!

A head torch is recommended for getting around after dark. An easy-to-carry camp-chair is also recommended if sitting on the ground can be a challenge for you.

There is no mains electricity. There is a phone for emergencies in the Cliff House.

There is little to zero mobile phone coverage with Telstra and no coverage from other carriers.
