Mingle with local musicians and learn their techniques
We all know that Melbourne is the cultural centre of Australia. And that includes a huge thriving music industry. So it is time to get your party boots on and head for the rolling hills of Yarra Valley. The 10th Anniversary of the Healesville Music Festival is going to be a massive musical treat.

The list of musicians includes many old favourite famous singer/songwriters including Mick Thomas & his Roving Commission who performed at the very first festival. Can you imagine four stages going all day for three days with all your favourite Australian talent just a few rows away from you.

Get your camp site early or book your hotel as things are going to fill up fast. This is a very popular festival. And if you are not a camper but want to be close to all the action then try glamping for the first time. Under Sky luxury camping will be setting up a festival camp site where they say "All you need to bring is your festival glad rags and your best mate."

Workshops are music get togethers with industry specialists and the talent themselves such as Daniel J Townsend from Tasmania. He is a poet and a singer-songwriter of rare and heartbreaking ability.

Children's activities will abound with the Riccus Circus bouncing around and showing off life daring feats.
