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.

Marilyn MorrisSorry Jennifer Midgley and committee. I am away for 4 weeks and won't get back to Cooktown until Sunday 10th at 6pm. Fly into Cairns at midday - so by the time i drive home, i will miss the meeting. Please put in my apologies and note that i would be willing to do same as i did in 2016. Cheers Mazz1 hour ago
