Classic Australian films surrounded by Australia's classic bushland? If you're after more than just the usual trip to the movies, you can't get much better than this. It's the work of Campout Cinema, the latest event coming to Bush Hideouts , a super scenic 500-acre spot by the banks of the Goulburn River, a breezy 80 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne.
Taking place from 6pm on Saturday, December 1, this one-off movie night will show a double of Wake in Fright and Long Weekend. If you don't know what you're in for, the pair of local 70s flicks are all about heading out into the Aussie outback and getting more than you bargained for. Yes, it's a particularly fitting program — but, thankfully, all of the unnerving thrills will be confined to the big screen. Unless you're easily frightened.
For those keen to soak up a combo of nature and cinema on the first night of summer, there'll also be food trucks, a bar and — naturally — plenty of popcorn.
$45 (plus booking fee) gets you entry to the films, access to the after party and a spot to camp for the night. If you're happy to pop along just for the movies, that'll set you back $20.
