THE FESTIVAL IS ABOUT OPTIONS &
WHAT FEELS RIGHT FOR YOU
The event runs for 4 days and 3 nights from Thursday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Guests stay overnight in their preferred choice of camping, luxury camping (glamping), cabin 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 the silent disco, late-night workshops, campsite chats and more.
There are also group opening and closing ceremonies and 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 Sunday our beautiful event will conclude with a closing ceremony at 5:00pm, allowing women enough time to pack up camp and travel safely home before the new week begins.
