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 so please share this event with your friends.

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.
