THE FESTIVAL IS ABOUT OPTIONS &
WHAT FEELS RIGHT FOR YOU
The event runs for 4 days and 3 nights from Friday morning to Monday afternoon. Guests stay overnight in their preferred choice of camping, glamping (basic or furnished) or offsite accommodation.
There will be multiple workshops and activities running at any one time and you have the choice of attending information talks, workshops, dance or craft classes, listen to live music or performances, receive a massage or treatment, peruse the markets or explore the festival grounds.
There are no pre-bookings for workshops; you simply turn up on the day. In the evenings you can enjoy Dj's, late-night workshops, campsite chats and more.
There is the opening and closing ceremonies and the Welcome to Country, which we encourage women to attend; to help set the mood and intention for the beginning and end of the gathering.
On Monday our beautiful event will conclude with a closing ceremony at 2:30pm, allowing women enough time to pack up camp and travel safely home before the new week begins.

Camping onsite is a big part of the festival experience; living in a village of women and immersing yourself night & day in the Festival activities.
General Camping is included in your ticket.
Onsite we have designated camping areas marked out by signs and bunting and are further specialised into camping areas for:
Mums and bubs
RV/trailer and caravan camping
Mobility friendly/accessible camping
There are no personally allocated plots, except for accessible camping, glamping and RV's, caravans & trailers camp zones (4x15m plots) which can be hired.
Everyone else simply drives in, finds a spot that suits, parks and sets up their campsite.
Please note that parked cars are separated but not too far from camping areas for convenience and safety reasons.
More info, diagrams, and maps are coming soon. First in, first serve.
SITE MAP can be viewed and downloaded here.(please note this may be changed)
To reduce the number of vehicles, traffic and onsite vehicle movement, we have reintroduced the car pass.
All guests camping onsite are required to purchase a pass per car.
One car pass for each car and it is only a one-time purchase.
A Car Pass is good for 4 days and 3 nights.
Please take note that we have different types of car passes:
• Car Pass (early entry from 11am) - $35
• Car Pass (entry 12:30pm onwards Fri 24 Nov) - $35
• Car Pass - Sleeping in vehicle (under 6m). $50
• Car Pass - Accessible / Mums & Bubs - $35
• Power plot + Car pass in Accessible Area (for medical purposes only) - $110
• Caravan/RV/Trailer Pass - $150
What type of Car Pass should I purchase?
If your vehicle is a small campervan/vehicle that is under 6m you will need to book the “Car Pass”
If your vehicle is a small campervan/vehicle that is under 6m and you will be SLEEPING IN IT, you will need to book the “Car Pass - Sleeping in vehicle (under 6m)”
If your vehicle is over 6m you need to book the “Caravan/RV/Trailer Pass”
If you are bringing a caravan or trailer – you need to book the “Caravan/RV/Trailer Pass” , no matter what the size is because they will be parked at the caravan’s parking area. That is the only space we will allow trailers.
Do I need to purchase a Car Pass if I am staying offsite?
No, if you are staying offsite, you do not require a carpass. A carpass is only for those camping overnight.
Do I need a Car Pass if I will be coming on Saturday or Sunday only?
Parking is already included in the Day tickets. Your vehicle will be parked at the Day Parking area.
Is "Car Pass - Sleeping in vehicle" also applicable to guests who purchased Day Tickets?
No, Sleeping in vehicle pass is only for those who have booked the full ticket and are staying onsite.
OUR MUMS & BUBS CAMP ZONE: has a “Mums & Bubs Lounge” which is equipped with change tables, bathtubs and feeding chairs. It is located conveniently close to the festival to minimise walking.
The festival site operates on a TOTAL FIRE BAN.
No campfires, candles, fires, pyrotechnics, firecrackers, sparklers or flares.
No gas stoves or BBQ’s (these will be checked at the gates & grounds and confiscated until after the event).
FACILITIES: The site is a farm site, therefore all facilities are being brought in for the event. There will be portaloos, composting toilets and hot water showers available in the campgrounds. Hot water showers are covered this year, but we encourage you to be waterwise.
Accessible showers and toilets are also available and located directly at the accessible camping area located at the top of the hill.
Please note that there are no cooking or refrigerated storage facilities available. We do have ice for sale at the Info Tent
for your eskies and a hot water station to fill up your thermos. We also have several food vendors serving a wonderful assortment of tasty food options, for all dietary requirements and preferences.
