The Planting Festival 2017 Dates & Ticket Prices – Camping & Program

The Planting Festival first started in 1997 where a group of volunteers came together to plant trees in order to restore areas of the Queensland hinterland. Now an annual event, this festival has grown over the years to now include important cultural activities and performances which brings the whole community together.

There are many workshops and masterclasses held throughout the festival which focus on creating artworks or performances with intensive skill-building exercises. There will be book writing classes, horticulture lessons and how to recycle and re-purpose clothes – just to name a few.

There are also film and comedy showings as well as a full program for kids including singing classes, learning about bugs, face painting, dance lessons, magic shows and art classes.

Some people choose to camp on-site during the festival and meals can also be provided at an additional cost. You are welcome to bring your camper-van, motor home, caravan or camper trailer to the festival, but please note that powered sites are not available. Camping spots are allocated on a first come first served basis and cannot be reserved.

You are allowed to bring your own food, however please note that fires or generators are not permitted. Tap water on site is drinkable; however you are encouraged to bring your own drinking water. There are hot showers and toilet facilities on site.

So come over to this fantastic event and learn more about Australian art and culture!
