Wallaby Creek Festival

Wallaby Creek Festival

Whether your looking for a relaxing weekend with the family or a camping getaway with your favourite people to get your groove on, then The Wallaby Creek Music and Arts Festival is for you. Set in the beautiful world heritage listed wet tropical rainforest of Far North Queensland, held every September at Home Rule Rainforest lodge.

This was my first festival experience with the young fella,and to be honest I was a little worried about getting bored. Having to be “responsible” and all. This was definantly not the case! Binky, Jensen and I had an awesome time! There’s so much to see and do, for the kids, and the adults. Fire Stick weilding Acrobats, a huge range of massage, jewellery, clothing and food market stalls, healing spaces, street artist entertainers, dedicated workshops for the kids and musicians from all genres playing all day and well into the night.

The Campsite is huge and has a variety of different areas. If you’ve got the kids, camp in the family area which is actually really quiet so you can still get a good nights sleep, or if your with your mates you probably want to be in the party section where the beats keep going all night! I got the DJI Spark up for some aerials of the Camping and Stage area. Check it out Below…..

As you can see in the video above there are three dams to swim in and a creek that surrounds the camp grounds with endless beautifull swimming holes. We didn’t get a chence to visit the nearby waterfall which is  a short walk away but heard it’s amazing. (NEXT YEAR!!)

Overall this was a great experience! The people are super friendly, super chilled and just keen to have fun! (Our kinda peeps!) The Festival runs for 3 days. Camping is included with the ticket price. So if your feeling stressed out by city life, get out in the bush and have some fun at The Wallaby Creek Music and Arts Festival.
