Creative Director Laena Stephenson said, “The weather forecast for the 1st October long weekend looks perfect and I for one can’t wait to try the food that’s freshly cooked on site.”

“You’d be amazed by the range of food that can be prepared in cast iron camp ovens.”

“This annual event attracts skilled amateur cooks to the Clarence Valley from far afield. Camp oven cooking is hugely popular across Australia,” she said.

The annual festival features live music, bush poetry, roaming street theatre acts and hilarious family games. The workshop program includes daily healing meditation sessions, palm pots challenge, a climate café, veil dance session, face painting, ukelele lessons and guided nature walks. The event is dog and family friendly, and BYOB.

How to Get There

Event Manager Phil Nicholas said, “We’re running a special coach service from Coffs Harbour and Woolgoogla to and from the festival on Saturday 1st October.”

“The coach costs just $5 return. Single day festival entry is $35 for adults and $15 for children.”

“I’d encourage anyone who hasn’t already booked in for the weekend to make a day trip on the Saturday, try the food, check out the bands, kids activities and workshops and stay for the fire show.”

Use Your NSW Vouchers

“Parents NSW vouchers can be used for live music and arts, so for anyone who enjoys the great Aussie outdoors, there’s no better opportunity to get involved,” he said.
