Wild Mountains Songs Retreat

08/10/2020 - 11/10/2020


Wild Mountains Songs provides established songwriters with a peaceful and naturally beautiful, creatively nurturing and inspiring space to collaborate with new writers, and to garner new life-long relationships. This project was formed with community, the natural environment and artistic creation equally at heart.

Wild Mountains Songs takes place on Mununjali land, south of Rathdowney adjoining the World Heritage Border Ranges National Park in Queensland, Australia. The event is held on land that is taken care of by the Wild Mountains Trust; these wondrous humans provide “earth connection” activities as part of the retreat to assist songwriters to fully detach from the day to day and become more connected to their creative self.

We acknowledge the Mununjali tribe and pay our respects to elders – past, present and emerging.

By connecting artists with one another, and the natural environment we have found participants are able to deeply connect with themselves and discover their deeper artistic purpose. The project is designed as a career re-boot, nurturing mature talent in order to ensure a rich culture of high calibre songwriting in Australia

We’re living in a constant state of distraction, and this is a sure fire way to kill creativity. We encourage artists to limit their phone use, to disconnect from the everyday, to recharge their brain cells, not their phone cells, even just for a few days.

Artists co-write two new songs with two new collaborators and are encouraged to share their unique skills through skill sharing workshops throughout the event. Artists write in a special plot of the forest, away from computers and mixing desks, back to basic writing, for the love of the song.

We pay full rates to use the space, we want Wild Mountains Trust to survive so that they can continue to teach children the importance of nurturing mother earth. We engage with the Mununjali tribe, wherever possible to welcome to the space and introduce the writers to the history of the land.
