Join the Jamboree!
Unprecedented coral bleaching. The hottest days on record. The biggest storms in history. And still, Australia exports more coal and gas than any country on Earth.
People everywhere are rising up to fight: taking on billionaire coal companies; closing coal plants and firing up clean energy projects; and halting gas fracking to protect land and water.
From the evening of Thursday 31 May to the afternoon of Sunday 3 June 2018, hundreds of people leading these fights are coming together on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast for the Beyond Coal and Gas Jamboree!
We must build an even more powerful movement. Will you join us?
Hear from Aboriginal activists fighting for country; inspiring Australian and international grassroots activists; learn new skills; share your experiences; and together, let’s build strategies to power Australia beyond coal and gas.
Early bird tickets are on sale now!

Program and Speakers
The program will offer three days of exciting national and international speakers, workshops and plenaries. There’ll also be open spaces so you can define the workshops you want to see.
We’d love you to help us design the program!
Take this survey to give us an early indication of what you’d like to the Jamboree to be!
We’re also leaving plenty of time and space for hanging out and having fun, with evening entertainment and opportunities to build and strengthen friendships.
Stay tuned – we’ll post details of the program and speakers once they’re confirmed.
Alexandra Park Conference Centre, between Mooloolaba and Maroochydore on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, is less than an hour and a half drive north of Brisbane and 15 minutes drive from the Sunshine Coast airport.
Nestled in one of the few remaining pockets of rainforest bushland in the Sunshine Coast, there’s wetlands as well as a surf beach just 200 metres from the main gate.
The conference is fully catered.
Accommodation is in dorms on site, with linen provided. We’ve also arranged camping spots at a nearby beachfront caravan park, 15 minutes walk from the venue.
