Aussie double at camp-out cinema
Residents are invited to experience a movie under the stars on bush land in the heritageprotected Trawool Valley, alongside the Goulburn River on Saturday from 6 pm.
Nagambie resident Matthew Branagan has joined Steve Blick from Northcote in a new Camp Out Cinema enterprise, with a luxury cabin and camping package already operating.
The entrepreneurs are looking to take their mobile cinema idea to a number of small towns for a cinema experience.
The duo run Bush Hideouts, and are excited to present an immersive outdoor movie experience like no other for local residents on Saturday.
Situated on Greenslopes Rd, Trawool, the 200 ha features a cabin with a full kitchen, dining, lounge, fantastic fireplace and sweeping 360-degree bush vistas.
‘‘To celebrate the first day of summer, we will be showcasing a double bill of classic Australian cinema, Wake In Fright and Long Weekend on the open-air screen,’’ Mr Branagan said.
‘‘The idea is to bring along your camping kit and stay the night in a tent, or camper. Enjoy the movie, and partake of some popcorn, a choice from the food menu or drinks from the bar all night.
‘‘“The idea is to screen classic movies on a regular basis, stuff that you wouldn’t ordinarily find and make it a fully immersive experience. We aim to put on a truly unique grownup summer camp out to remember.’’
Mr Branagan said Bush Hideouts was a chance to simply switch off, reconnect with your loved ones and meet furry and feathered friends like wombats, platypus, koalas and kangaroos who call the landscape their home.
‘‘The site is located next to the Horseshoe Lagoon state forest and fauna reserve,’’ he said.
