April 2020: Due to the Covid-19 health crisis travel on the Camino is not possible. We need to keep safe, and we need to keep those who live and work on the Camino safe. The Camino will not disappear, it is just temporarily inaccessible. Keep your Camino dreams on hold until such times as it is safe to travel. Read more
Australian Friends of the Camino
Victoria – Barwon Camino Group
Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast region, Victoria
April 2020: As social distancing measures are now being practiced across Australia, most of the in-person pilgrim gatherings have been cancelled. For specific information or alternative meeting approaches, please contact the pilgrim group directly.
The Barwon Camino Group was established as a social group for people in the Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast region who have walked one of the caminos or are planning to walk a camino.
They hold regular walks and other social gatherings where fellow pilgrims can get together and share stories and experiences. They encourage future pilgrims to come along and join in our activities and draw on the experience of the group to help you take that first step on your camino. At all times they keep the spirit of the camino alive in our group and in our communities.
