Event New Norcia Weekend

West Travel Club Event

Some love photography. Some love writing. But maybe some are just looking for a nice weekend away. That’s why we offer three choices:

1 Just come for the weekend, meet the team, spend time with like-minded people, explore, rest a little and come to our concert.

2 Learn skills and techniques in our travel writing sessions.

3 PhotoWalk with professionals and hone your image making — whether you’re using a camera or your phone.

There’s a package for all on New Norcia Weekend Away in renovated buildings, and with all meals included.
