Food and drink stalls will be operating during the entire festival. The majority of these are amongst the trees on the south side of the chapel and near the Hoopla stage. Some of the healthy food choices available include:
- street food from around the world
- tortillas, nachos and crepes
- organic coffee and cakes
- vegetarian and vegan food
- wood fired pizza
- smoothies, popcorn and gelato
- hot and cold drinks and juices.
Patrons can shop from Friday to Sunday for unique art pieces at the Festival Markets. The market stalls are set in and around the natural bush environment and beautifully towering native Australian trees.
There are two licensed venues:
- Garden Bar, next to Ruby’s music venue and situated on the back lawn of Heath Cottage, under beautiful shady trees.
- Gus’s Bar is located to the north of Mandja, our largest marquee venue. Its location near the Chapel catering area makes it perfect for meeting friends old and new in a lively atmosphere.
