On the 1st weekend of May each year, people from all over Australia make their way to the little-known Camerons Pocket.

This chunk of paradise comes alive on this weekend when it hosts the Wintermoon Festival.

Set in the foothills of the north-east boundary of the Eungella National Park, this quiet rural setting beside the beautiful St Helens Creek comes alive with hundreds of festival-goers seeking the wonderful world music and the camaraderie with people who enjoy their escape to tranquillity. The fact that it’s family-friendly is a big attraction to those with little ones. Camps rapidly appear on land that was once an orchard and strains of guitars, fiddles, mandolins and flutes can be heard from spontaneous performances around the site.

The festival not only boasts some of the best world music performers from Australia but also showcases some of our local talent on three stages strategically placed at various locations within the grounds. If one artist is not to your taste, you can stroll off and check out what’s happening on one of the other stages.

As well as music, there are market stalls selling mostly hand-made items or offering massage or holistic health services. And you won’t go hungry either with a variety of fare from the Hare Krishna vegetarian food to the more familiar burgers and everything in between.

Campers are well catered for with facilities such as hot showers and plenty of toilets.

The Wintermoon Festival began in 1996 as a tiny local event with locals as entertainers and audience. Word has spread about the beautiful location, and family-friendly atmosphere.

Although the festival has grown quite large, it still seems a “small, cosy festival” at heart because it’s always surrounded by friendly, helpful people, and families are a big part of our festival, so the kids are always well catered for.

To optimise the safety of our guests and to maintain the serenity of your camping surroundings a strict ticketing policy for youth has been implemented.
