Moora Moora is a co-operative residential community made up of a diverse group of about 50 adults and 20 children. We deliberately choose to live together in six small hamlets located on a beautiful co-operatively owned 245 hectare property situated at an altitude of 700 metres on Mt Toolebewong.
The community is situated near the township of Healesville, approximately 67 km, about 90 minutes by car, to the east of the city of Melbourne. Melbourne is Australia's second largest city and capital of the state of Victoria. It is located in the south eastern corner of continental Australia
Moora Moora is private property. It is open to visitors only on our open days which are held on the first Sunday of every month at 1.30pm, except on days of Total Fire Ban.
On these days you can join a tour of the property, meet some of the members and residents of the community and discuss Moora Moora and how we work together to manage our community and property. Please meet at the Octagon (visible from the front gate) at 1.30pm sharp, or tours may have already left.
Moora Moora will hold its EarthArtBeat Festival on Mt Toolebewong from Friday, November 20, to Sunday, November 22.
EarthArtBeat Festival will support community development and social change and will be family friendly.
It will include non-stop live music and an art exhibition, which will include the works of Moora Moora artists, and movies from independent filmmakers will be screened.
Yoga and other workshops will be presented by both Moora Moora members and others.
The Learning Centre at Moora Moora hosts courses and workshops relevant to sustainable community living.
The courses we host are relevant to or arise from our experience of living this lifestyle. Many are provided by members of the Moora Moora community, but the Centre is also home to courses provided by others.
Courses have covered a wide range of interests: yoga and qi gong, sacred ecology and spirituality, living in community, eco-village design and stand-alone solar power systems accreditation for electricians are just some examples.
