For an overview of the course see here.
The Permaculture Design Course is based on location at Murrnong Farm, and also includes day trips to other active permaculture properties in the region. Murrnong is easily accessible by road or train, just at the end of the Violet Town main street, (google map link here), which is a 1 km walk from the train station. We carpool to access other sites.

Course days run from 9am to 4.30pm (you are invited to come for a cuppa beforehand at 8.45).
We welcome course participants to camp overnight for each PDC weekend, to reduce travel time and enrich the PDC experience. See some of the range of spaces available at Murrnong for camping in Land uses gallery.
We all contribute to the shared lunch. This becomes a highlight and an inspiration for what we have each been able to produce at home, or source locally.
Fruit and nuts from the Murrnong orchard are supplied with morning and afternoon tea.
Produce grown and made at Murrnong Farm is available to purchase.
