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-camping in Rossville, just south of Cooktown, and will be in its 17th year, 2018.

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.

2017 Official Photography by Susan Kelly  Natural Images

Susan was the event photographer at the Wallaby Creek Folk festival in 2016 and 2017 and I can’t speak too highly of her professionalism and creativity. Her images are extraordinary and capture the feel of our family friendly festival. She has a way of noticing and telling a story with her images that brings the event to life and showcases the incredible details of the amazing and diverse artists. We are very happy to have these images for our website and promotions and we know they will help our special festival grow. Sandy Lloyd, Entertainment Director, Wallaby Creek Festival
