Base camp is at Riverbend Youth Camp, 358 Trowutta Rd, Scotchtown TAS. Just 6km south of Smithton. The base camp consists of a large complex all under one roof. There is a great kitchen and dining hall, an auditorium where the data entry from the surveys will occur and a presentation room where we will have speakers each night.
