WALLABY CREEK FESTIVAL 2015
Wallaby Creek Festival is created each year by a small team of dedicated volunteer workers from the Cape York Folk Club who put an enormous effort and work tirelessly to make it all happen with the generous help of others.

What They Said, 2014:
Coming to perform at Wallaby Creek Festival 2014 was an experience like no other. As well as the extraordinarily stunning setting, we were treated to a display of warmth and generosity that we had not experienced at any other festival, whether in Australia or abroad. From the coordination of a full green room area, stocked with food and drink making facilities, to the skill of the sound engineers and stage managers, and the cabin accommodation, we were treated to a real VIP artist experience. The punters were warm and welcoming and the breadth of music was inspiring. One thing that made a huge impression on us was the opportunity to bond with other musicians and share stories of a life lived in the pursuit of musical creation. We were able to forge connections with other musicians and bands based in different cities to us that are now leading to collaborative ventures – putting on gigs together, lending tips and advice on everything from gear to touring to grants, lending voices and instrumentation to each others recordings… In this way, Wallaby Creek was completely unique to us – functioning as a hub in which relationships with fellow musicians could be forged, which, in an industry that can often leave artists feeling overwhelming and isolated, is so important. We left Wallaby Creek feeling completely energised and rejuvenated, full of new musical connections and new friendships. [Rachel By The Stream].
FANTASTIC FESTIVAL- great organisation, beautiful setting and wonderful network of caring people as well as inspiring performers. My first but not my last.
Kallidad: Muchos Gracias!

We would like to thank all of us committee members & volunteers for making another great festival year, without any of these people the festival would never happen.
