Wallaby Creek Festival 2015

Who We Are

Wallaby Creek Festival is a 3 day celebration of music and the arts, surrounded by the beautiful heritage listed wet tropical rainforest of far north Queensland.

The festival has been held September of each year at Home Rule Rainforest Lodge in Rossville, just south of Cooktown, and will be in its 16th year, 2017.

With 3 magical days of musicians, artists and workshops entwined with an amazing and diverse collection of market stalls and crafters, healing spaces, dedicated children’s festival and activities, crafts, street artists and entertainers, Wallaby Creek Festival is a wonderful family-focused event.

Full use of Home Rule Lodge, its surrounds and camping is available for all ticket holders and makes a truly fantastic retreat for the September holidays for family and friends.

Rubbish Reduction Program:
Do your part to save the planet! Getting all that trash to landfill is an expensive and dirty process for this community festival so think before you pack your car.

Before packing camp food and gear for the festival think about bulk buying with a friend, reducing the amount of plastic you bring – or use containers that you can wash up and re-use at home.

Jess LindsayWhat if ur flying in and ur catching a bus up? How are u meant to take ur rubbish back then? I believe it is the organizers who charge you to attend who should organize the removal of rubbish. Yes it is everyone responsibility to keep their camp site clean and put everything in rubbish bags but the rest shouldn't really be left to everyone else.1   ·  1 week ago

Jennifer MidgleyI see your problem and have edited the post - we will have bins for rubbish but not heaps like normal.1 week ago

Ashley HollidayIt is not that hard if you bring it in you can also take it out. If you buy it there you don't need to take the rubbish out as most will compostible or recycled.2   ·  1 week ago

About a festival I know... The Wallaby Creek Festival Far North Queensland, Wo Ho! Not really in the city More like in the bush Near a place called Cooktown But in the lush rainforest. It goes for three days and nights And there's heaps for the kids to do But there ain't no crappy show rides 'Cause: Chorus We like to keep it simple We like to keep it right We like to spread the love And dance …..under the clear moonlight..... We keep our prices low And kids 12 and under are free We really value families And.... our …...community There's music and there's dancing From three stages you can choose There's swimming in the dams and creek There's stalls, art and craft too 'Cause: We like to keep it simple We like to keep it right We like to spread the love And dance under the clear moonlight We need to raise some cash To put a roof on the sea-container All the tools are gonna get wrecked and we won't be able to find a hammer So you see we've come together 'Cause we're a close knit community All working with each other To make life the best it can be! And No, living in the rainforest is not free!

The Lineup Wallaby Creek Festival 2017 continues: MANALION!! Three brothers (most likely from different mothers) maybe we met in Manly in 2012 on Sydney's Northern Beaches, maybe we met on Mars, maybe we met by a bin fire floating wayward on a raft between the North and South Islands of Aotearoa as the full moon kept us moving....Either way we three brothers met, and we met to make music to make you sway and dance and swing and sweat. Music to make love to the mind, soul and ears of your sister, your wife, your mistress, your Nanna, to your sweet baby mama. We met to sing of love and trouble, of leisure and life. www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3PK0z1V3go
