Partnership With AIME
Beyond The Valley are proud to continue our ongoing partnership with AIME (Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience). For every ticket sold, Beyond The Valley donates $1 toward the advancement of this amazing enterprise, along with mentoring opportunities and coveted festival slots on offer.
AIME is a structured educational program proven to support Indigenous students through high school and into university, employment or further education at the same rate as every Australian child – effectively closing the gap in educational outcomes.
AIME was founded in 2005 by then 19 year-old Indigenous university student, Jack Manning Bancroft, and 25 university student mentors who started working with 25 Indigenous high school kids. Today, AIME is connecting approximately 6,000 mentees with 1,800 mentors across 34 locations and in partnership with 18 Australian universities.
By 2018, AIME plan to reach 10,000 Indigenous students annually across Australia. AIME believes that Indigenous = success.

How To Be An Environmentally Friendly Festival Goer, A Handguide.
Each year we are humbled to call the luscious parklands of Baw Baw Shire our home. To reduce our impact on the local and broader environment, we ask that you please do the following during your time at Beyond The Valley:
Disposing of your waste in the correct bins will keep our festival site looking ship-shape in both the short and long run. Please be mindful when getting rid of waste to place them in their respective bins. Recyclables and rubbish bins will be located at the ‘Necess-Cities’ hubs all throughout the site for your convenience.
Make good use of the garbage bags provided upon your arrival to the festival. A quick clean up here and there throughout the festival will keep your campsite from turning into a dump.
Take Your Belongings With You
At the end of the festival remember to take your camping equipment home with you – it can be reused for many festivals to come! Otherwise, there are plenty of charities who would be stoked to receive donations of camping equipment and other bits and pieces.
When travelling to Beyond The Valley, we highly recommend getting together with friends and carpooling. Not only will you get to share in the road trip fun with your friends, you will also be contributing fewer emissions into the atmosphere.
Less cars on the road = less travel emissions.
