Wintermoon 2014


Wes Carr at 2013 Wintermoon

I was watching Sunday Night on channel 7 about the Bucket list event that is Byron Bluesfest. It made me think about our very own festival, and I wanted to share the love.

Set on the banks of St Helens Creek, at the base of Eungella Range, in Camerons Pocket, the 18th Annual Wintermoon Music Festival is a must do event.

Camping, multiple stages, workshops, stalls, byo, yummy food stalls (my favourite is the Hare Krishna’s) fantastic energy and spirit.

This family friendly festival has many  talented musicians over the 4 days. You are sure to have a memorable weekend in the pocket.

Be warned, you will want to return every year!

Belly Dancing, fire twirling, plenty of dancing and singing under the Winter Moon, or perhaps a massage, tarot reading or yoga class. Hippie clothes, jewelery, incense and candles……it’s all here!

I hope you can make it, and come away a new, refreshed, connected you. With the recent blood moon affecting so many people’s energy, both physically and mentally at the moment, it is important to take time for self!

Check out the website link below for all the details you will need.

No beer tent at Wintermoon so be prepared!!

Make sure to call in at Calen Hotel for your alcohol, ice and soft drink needs on the way through, as there is no beer tent. She’s BYO, which in my opinion is better, and cheaper!

Get your meat at Calen Butchery on the Bruce Highway for the BBQ at your campsite, or some ham for the sangas in your picnic basket if you are doing a day trip.

See Calen Electrical Sales & Services for any electrical needs such as batteries, torches and perhaps an extra SD card for the camera to record your awesome time in the pocket…

Calen Newsagency on the corner of Bruce Highway has plenty of groceries, lotto, papers and an amazing array of interesting goods to check out!

If you do not want to camp out, plan a stay at St Helens Gardens Tourist Park and visit the festival, but return to your very own cabin or van on the banks of St Helens Creek.

Wintermoon at Night

Bring your chairs and settle in..

Take a chair if you are able, at least a blanket to spread out.

They have hay bails out front of the stages, but it is nice to set up “home base.”

Never mind the weather…rain, hail or shine, this event is a goer, and seriously the way you feel when you leave is worth it.

Usually it is a little crisp in the evening, warm in the day (take a dip in the cold, fresh, running St Helens creek.)


If there is the odd shower, grab a friend and go dance to the closest band!!

See you there…. I will be the one with tie dyed hat on !! 🙂 Not like on Anzac day when I fried.
