Ticket Registration

As with our event last year, we have engaged


to enable ladies attending our event to purchase their tickets.

CCLD 001

Locals Early Bird Registration is available to women who live in the Diamantina, Barcoo, Quilpie or Bulloo Shires, or around the Tibboburra and Birdsville Track areas from late July.  Tickets for women outside those areas will be available from August 8th, 2015.

We are fortunate to be able to offer registration to participants at a reduced price this year, with thanks to Red Ridge and the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.

Registration includes full gourmet catering from Friday evening’s Cocktail Party canapes until Sunday’s sit down lunch. Complimentary champagne on arrival. Registration also includes all speakers and workshops.

Please Note: Workshops with arts materials will incur an additional cost, as specified in the program, as do the Beauty & Pampering services or any private consultations.

Tented Accommodation, raffle tickets and shirts are also available to purchase  for those ordering their tickets as early bird locals.


Off the Track Training will give you a workout

You don’t need a gym, a tonne of weights or a personal trainer to whip you into shape – all you need is a bit of will power (yes, that’s the hard part!) and some how-to knowledge to get you working out at home, with easily accessible fitness ‘equipment’.

Joy McClymont

The wonderful Joy McClymont (pictured here with her gorgeous kids) will be conducting her Off the Track Training workshops at Channel Country Ladies Day. She’ll be giving us a rundown of how we can best use items in our homes as fitness equipment. While she can’t provide the willpower, she’s an expert on the know-how!

Wondering where to sleep?

Because we’re tough Channel Country women, Ladies’ Day is a camping only event. There’s no accommodation in Noccundra so BYO swag and join us in our very own 5,000,000 star accommodation! Or, if you’re not the camping type, we have luxe tents on offer, and we’ll even put them up for you!

There is an option on our registration page if you would like to book a tent. They’ll sell out quickly, so get a move on if you’re that way inclined.

See you at Eromanga!

Program Announcement: The Pleasure Consultant

After extremely popular and enlightening workshop sessions at the inaugural Durham Downs Ladies Day last year, we’re happy to announce that Ana Snyman, the Pleasure Consultant, is returning!

Ana Snyman

Ana is a Pleasure Consultant, an experienced sexuality coach – men, women and couples – and a Sex Toy Expert. She consulted for a designer sex gear company for 6 years in Melbourne, hosting home product parties delivering sex education and explaining how to enhance your sex life with erotic toys and accessories.

She also worked as a Sales Consultant for many years at Sexpo Sexuality, Health & Lifestyle Expo in every Australian capital city, speaking with thousands of couples seeking something: encouragement, a greater understanding, physiology information, deeper communication, broader experiences, something new, something spontaneous, fun and playful…Or to explore something a little more challenging or kinky together!

She gained extensive training and experience in Tantric Massage and Love Coaching in 2007, attending the 1st International Sacred Sexuality Congress in Spain, and holds a Diploma of Retail Management and a Diploma of Remedial Massage.

Finally, the time arrived to stop working for other people and do what she loves, so Ana launched her consultancy business, PleasureConsultant.com, in 2011. She currently lives in Mullumbimby, close to Byron Bay NSW Australia.

Program announcement: Mosaic with Scott Maxwell from Arkadian Art:

Here’s some good news for your Sunday, ladies. We’ve confirmed Scott Maxwell to run mosaic workshops at Channel Country Ladies Day!

Scott Maxwell’s mosaic workshops are designed to make people aware of the long history and contemporary practice of mosaic making. Participants brainstorm themes and stylize designs and are encouraged by what they can achieve in very simple ways to produce personal and highly durable, long lasting works of art. Works can be made on the flat or in the round and suitable for internal hanging or external embedding.

He’s been commissioned to make impressive public and private works all over the world and his workshops are innovative and well-renowned explorations of creativity through tiles.  We’re very lucky to have him attending the 2013 Channel Country Ladies Day.

See you in Noccundra!


Program announcement: Silversmithing with Tina-maree Zohl

Have you ever wished you could design and make your own professional-looking jewelry? We have! So did Tina-maree Zohl. She’s a spare-time silversmith with a passion for design. We’ll let her tell you the yarn…



My name is Tina-maree Zohl. I live with my husband, Luke, and our beautiful girls Beth and Aimeé in St George, Queensland.

I work full time for the Department of Natural Resources and Mines. Jewellery is my hobby.

My love of wire began when I was asked to do a major assignment for art in Grade 12. I decided to create a weeping bride out of fencing wire. My dad became my mentor showing me the finer points of soldering, swearing and how to become proficient with a pair of pliers. He was also responsible for sourcing my bizarre requests for materials, steel lathe shavings, wide tooth shearing combs’, used fly screen, etc. I didn’t get creative again until 2009; I attended my first and only silver smith course and became hooked. With limited tools and work space I began dabbling in copper. I am basically self-taught, shocking at following instruction/patterns, as I like to work it out for myself – silly I know, but it works for me.

Five years on, I have a fantastic array of tools, taken over the husband’s humpy, Dad who has just turned 80 is still my mentor and makes all my little bending tools, however on occasions I recruit my brother, who is a boiler maker, when I get stuck on a certain metal. I have successfully melted, burnt and bent metal beyond recognition, but I have also created some amazing pieces. I have the most honest critics anyone could have (my family), who keep me on my toes. I am humbled when I see people wearing my creations, and very grateful for their support. I have met some wonderful people traveling and going to markets, and appreciate the amazing talent of my fellow marketers. I look forward to sharing some wire bending projects with you.”

The year 12 art assignment that started it all.

Storytelling with Annabelle Brayley added to the program


Annabelle Brayley trained as a registered nurse. When she married her husband, Ian, she went on to live on an isolated sheep and cattle station in south-west Queensland. Relocating in 2001 to the small rural community where they now live, Annabelle resumed employment in rural and remote health before retiring to pursue her passion for storytelling.

As a regular contributor to RM Williams OUTBACK magazine, Annabelle frequently tells the stories of people who live and work in the bush. She has developed a reputation for accuracy, honesty and sensitivity that enables people to tell their stories without fear of prejudice or sensationalism.

Her best-selling book Bush Nurses was published in March and is available through Penguin.

We’re very lucky to be able to work with Annabelle and are looking forward to her storytelling workshops at Channel Country Ladies Day.

See you in Noccundra!
