The Channon has a long history in the alternative movement since the early 1970’s. The new settlers valued the environment, as shown in the fight for Terania in ’79, where new precedents were established for environmental protection in Australia and overseas. Whatever you do, don’t miss The Channon craft market every 2nd Sunday of the month.
Eternity Springs Art Farm reflects the commitment of the whole area in finding active ways to reduce our ecological ‘footprint’ and offers visitors an opportunity to see organic cycles in the kitchen garden and orchards. We are in the process of planting hundreds of native species and regenerating the rainforest area around the creek to the waterfall and rock pool, and up the track to the spring. An ideal venue to look and experience a variety of permaculture and earth repair systems, such as recycling, organic gardens, wetland and rainforest regeneration.
Eternity Springs Art Farm is a unique and memorable venue, comprising 20 acres of former farmland which has been transformed by artist Amanda Furze into productive examples of permaculture design. Interesting structures nestle into tropical gardens and art works catch the eye at every turn. There is even a full sized Labyrinth meditation walk. Amanda prefers to live among her art work, not sell it: her sculptures and found objects are as at home in the garden beds as the multitude of colourful plants. The comfortable accommodation buildings are equally unique and colourful, created with Amanda’s flair for incorporating whatever materials are to hand.
A short walk across the horse paddock will bring you to a magic forest walk leading to a secluded waterfall for a refreshing dip.
The extensive wet land system is home to 12 different species of frog and the summer evenings are awash with their melodious orchestra. Large green tree frogs are welcome guests on the back verandah, their croak amplified in the gutters. Mornings are full of bird song, many species make the garden their home.
The established infrastructure – vegetable garden, chook yard, waste water treatment system, etc. – provide living examples of sustainable landscape design.
