Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Okay, that's the music sorted. Please note that when there are no days/dates mentioned that the organisers have not as yet made those details available.

In addition to all the sensational musical talent, the Caloundra Music Festival sports it's very own Funky Forest, home to the Sun Stage with a heap load of fun and exciting activities for the children. Nestled under the shady trees of Kings Beach Park, kids of all ages can create, play and explore. Daily workshops, sports and games can be viewed in the mini programme, available at the festival gates. There will be:

Facepainting;
Yoga classes;
Jumping Castles;
African Drumming workshops;
Circus workshops (juggling, hula hoops and more);
Art and Craft activités;
Magic Tie Dye;
Soccer; and
Joyology

Most of these activities are free but some of the workshops will incur a small cost to cover the materials.



Teepee Tunes is new to the Funky Forest this year. The children can enjoy an intimate little stage tucked under the trees; the artists have even learned some classic children's' songs! Please click here to see the programme for Teepee Tunes.

Such an awesome, jam-packed long weekend of entertainment. Now, all we need is accommodation. The Caloundra Music Festival has that sorted too, with either camping or glamping (my style of camping). The Caloundra State Primary School is providing camping facilities during the Caloundra Music Festival on the lower school grounds. The four-hectare site is flat, open and elevated with some shady sites, providing families with affordable accommodation options. For important information on Camping prices please click here. Please read the Camping Conditions of Entry here. To book your camping, please click here.

Perhaps, you're like me and would prefer the glamping option. The Caloundra Music Festival has the 'fussier' than usual campers sorted too, with luxury Glamping Bell Tent accommodation in a private area also located at the Caloundra State Primary School.
