Everybody dancing in moonlight
Cyclone no match for our fav family friendly festival
THE good news for Whitsunday music lovers is that the Wintermoon festival site has survived the wrath of Cyclone Debbie.
To quote the organisers, there is some damage and a lot of cleaning work to be done, but it is nothing that some love and some loyal volunteers can’t fix.
The beloved St Helens Creek is looking beautiful for swimming after a cleansing torrent of water and the Cameron’s Pocket valley, where Wintermoon is located, 10 minutes drive west of Calen and midway between Mackay and Proserpine, is as peaceful as
ever in spite of its tree loss.
Now in its 21st year, the much anticipated music festival is going ahead as planned during the Labour Day long weekend, from April 28 to May 1.
It will be a perfect place for people to rest and relax post-cyclone Debbie and to take a little time out from the stress and hard work of restoring life in the Whitsundays to normality again.
There are plenty of camping choices this year with the new Orange Grove camping grounds added to the festival site but campers are urged to book soon before the camping sells out.
If your work or other commitments prevent a camping getaway a day ticket to Wintermoon is a great option.
Musicians are coming from all over Australia to treat their Wintermoon audiences to some of the best music imaginable and they will be joined by all the people who make the festival what it is.
Don’t miss it.
It will be a perfect place for people to rest and relax post-cyclone Debbie and to take a little time out.
