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

The festival is held September of each year at Home Rule Rainforest Lodge in Rossville, just south of Cooktown.

With 3 magical days of musicians, artists and workshops entwined with an amazing and diverse collection of market stalls and crafters, healing spaces, dedicated childrens 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.

2015 included some of Australia’s well loved festival bands as well as showcasing artists from surrounding towns and indigenous communities. 

The festival grounds came alive with street theatre and dynamic activities, workshops and exhibits and walks to the spectacular Home Rule Falls and unique tropical rainforest displays was offered throughout the weekend.

Ok Wallaby Lovers <3 so the next festival is from Friday 30 Sep to 2nd Oct. Now the next day is a Monday and it is a Public Holiday :) The festival has been moved from the middle weekend of the school holidays to the last weekend. Ashley Holliday, when do you think the tickets will be for sale on-line? I know I would like to see a ticket lay-bye system set up for our patrons... who else would like to be able to pay off their ticket over the year? ... See MoreSee Less
