Event information

For the first time, Northern Gulf NRM’s popular women’s event will be held in Mount Carbine, bringing it closer to the Cape.

Please circulate the attached flyer to spread the word far and wide across the Cape and Northern Gulf regions. 

Basalt Bash ‘Bloom & Prosper’ is an event for rural and remote women, bringing them together to build stronger social cohesion, reduce the sense of isolation, encourage conversations on key issues and common themes, and improve mental health and wellbeing.

It's also an event where women build skills, are provided with links to assistance and industry-related updates and information, build networks among rural and isolated women—plus relax and have a few fun days together.

DATE: 4–6 September 2020

VENUE: Mount Carbine Rodeo Grounds

ACCOMMODATION: Camping - bring your own gear

MEALS: All meals provided, plus a couple of complimentary welcome cocktails at dinner on the Friday night.
