Who We Are

The festival has been held September of each year at Home Rule Rainforest Lodge in Rossville, just south of Cooktown, and is in its 15th year, 2016.

Jennifer MidgleyI can! Large motorhomes are asked to camp closer to the festival gate where you buy tickets. Your friends can camp in their tents there too. It is not too far to walk.1   ·  3 days ago

Do you mean around there Jennifer Midgley. We were camped close to a shed where the rubbish was sorted for recycling last year which was between the ticket gate and the welcome gateway i mentioned above.1   ·  3 days ago

Ashley Holliday7m is not too large for access to most areas. the area between the main gate and the festival area gate is probably the easiest.3   ·  3 days ago

Beccy BeccyboopWe have a Camper Trailer with 12ft tent. Some friends are coming with us in a Toyota Coaster... I'm hoping WE can camp together too... In the family section I'm hoping...3 days ago

Sandra Lloydplease understand that people in the family tents do not want to be hemmed in by large vans - the area for larger vehicles is actually one of the best and isnt far to walk. when you come in go and have a look - most dont realise just how good it is.1   ·  3 days ago

Beccy BeccyboopI don't care about walking... I just want to be in a quieter area because I'm old abd cranky... :-P2   ·  3 days ago
