Group packages

The Melbourne Pilgrimage includes three packages for self-managed groups, enabling schools, parishes and communities to experience the Festival with their own community. Groups must include a minimum of four participants. Each Group is required to have a Group Coordinator who will be travelling with the group, and a minimum of two adult leaders where the group includes participants aged under 18. Groups are responsible for arranging their own leaders, chaplains and supervision for their participants. Information is now available for Group Coordinators of self managed groups, view here. Terms and Conditions can be viewed here.

 
An initial information pack will be sent to Group Coordinators when registering their group through the website.
