Wheel of the Year Circles
This solar year we will be exploring our local area in the Upper Blue Mountains by visiting a different site in the area each time together before coming back to the Community Gardens in Katoomba for a ritual and to share food. The dates, times and locations are as follows. More information will be given about specific meeting places closer to the date, or contact via text to either Julie on 0433051137 or Amanda on 0422717549. All events are free.
Dates for 2022/2023:
Saturday September 24th 12 noon – Druid Crafting Day
The walk to Water Nymph’s Dell has been cancelled due to rain and the path being potentially unsafe. Instead we are meeting at Julie’s house in Katoomba for an afternoon of craft and creativity. Bring along any craft project you are working on and some food to share. If the weather clears we can have a ritual in the garden. Some ideas: painting, sketching, nature journal, make a crane bag, make a wand or staff. There are some craft supplies here too if you don’t have anything. Please contact Julie for the address 0433051137.
Saturday October 29th 2:30pm – Mount Hay
Meeting place TBA
Saturday December 17th 2:30pm – Hat Hill
Meet in the carpark at the end of the tarmac section of Hat Hill Rd. We will walk to the top of the hill. It is uneven ground but only a short walk of about 5-10 minutes up and back.

Meet in the lookout carpark.

Megalong Valley Rd. Meet in the main camp parking area near the toilet block.
Saturday April 29th 1:30pm – Narrowneck
Meet in the end parking area at the far end of the road where the walk begins. We will walk to the view over Mount Solitary/Korowal. It is about thirty minutes to an hour each way. The ground is uneven but not very steep.
After the journey to see these locations we will return to the Community Gardens in Katoomba where there is a kitchen and toilets we can use. We can share food here and have a ritual. The locations have been chosen to represent each of the seasonal festivals and their directions on the wheel of the year. The Community Gardens is at the center of them.
