The Crossing Land Education Trust provides conservation education experiences that develop young people's capacity to live more sustainably. The Crossing encourages young people to adopt sustainable conservation projects and practices including permaculture design for water reuse, energy saving and habitat protection.
Established in 1999, The Crossing Land Education Centre is a unique not-for-profit educational camp on the Bermagui River where young people learn about living simply, conserving resources and caring for the earth in a hands-on and practical way. Educational experiences at The Crossing also aim to develop greater self awareness, confidence, enthusiasm and initiative in young people.

The Crossing Youth Music Expo
The Crossing also integrate with the broader community to promote the local musical talent on the Far South Coast at the annual Cobargo Folk Festival. The Crossing has a unique stage and youth space for musicians who are between 14 years and 21 years of age. The chance to play at the festival offers young and emerging musicians a great opportunity to express their own sound and to also gain more stage confidence and experience in front of a music savvy crowd. Depending on the Festival program, we may also include workshops for young artists to hone their skills. For example, past workshops have included - beat box, stage craft, song writing, singing, drumming and guitar techniques. Young songwriters are encouraged to come and perform their own original material live on stage.
The youth stage is a welcoming and intimate space where music goers can come and feel the beat together as one!
