Girrakool Blues Festival and Barbecue

Girrakool Blues Festival and Barbecue

*** Latest event details are yet to be confirmed *** Girrakool Blues Festival and barbecue named after the nearby waterfalls, and quite befittingly is Aboriginal for “Place of still water” or Muddy Waters, will be held on the first weekend in March every year. In a New Orleans styled theme, the Festival will feature a wonderful weekend of quality, international, national and local blues and roots acts, within the beautiful surrounds of Mt Penang Garden Parklands, in a family friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Patrons can bring their rugs and chairs to enjoy the world-class music, and soul food from selectively picked stalls, including a unique American Southern style barbecue, and local artist stalls. The main “Girrakool Stage” will be nestled among the trees in front of the creek, easily seen by all patrons. While the “Wondabyne Stage” will be located amid the Wonderbyne Sculptures at the other end of the gardens. Apart from the music it will have a strong Aboriginal content, with indigenous bands, Welcome to Country Ceremony, Womens activities and with the potential of short tours to the Girrakool waterfalls and engravings.
