Many groups pursue their own interests  in this outback space and are encouraged to explore the possibilities, including as an outback conference and workshop venue.

Edge of the Desert Gallery – EDG, which also provides an outdoor art workshop venue,  is being developed by Karen. It may be possible to consider Arts funding for group workshops –  or  for an individual Artist in Residence or Writer in Residence.

Astronomers are given priority accommodation considerations to enable uninterrupted night sky viewing and astrophotography –  with any other simultaneous bookings made with understanding of  all lights reduced and consideration for sleeping hours. Meeline has welcomed astronomers and astronomy groups  from Perth, Western Australia and around the world since 1986. Night sky tours by Adrian are available.

Conference and Workshop venues are offered. For larger groups, accommodation can be supplemented through Mt Magnet and other local Station Stays.

EDG –  Edge of the Desert Gallery, is being developed by Karen to predominantly celebrate conceptions of the desert  –  inspired by the concepts, paintings and research work both on Meeline and in Tuscany, of her sister, Australian Artist, Dr Judith Dinham.  Karen is grounding the Gallery’s permanent Museum exhibition, with an historical focus on the men, women and children who have themselves walked Meeline country and  lived and worked here. Edge of the Desert Gallery,  in its early formative stage – is hoped to inspire other artists to spend time in this place and be inspired to create and develop their own concepts.  Educative opportunities for students and professionals are supported.

Corporate groups can be challenged here. Creative Artists and their students have an opportunity to explore and create. Musicians create and re-create their music and play on an outback stage. Writers have a private space to be  inspired.

Bushwalkers (minimum 4)  can hike walking trails  –  cyclists the cycling tracks (bring own cycles). Scientists discover while groups of friends and families re – discover.
