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!

Secret Garden - first Sunday every month


Proudly hosted by Troubadour Wagons, the Secret Garden and Riverside Vibes Micro Music Events are modern-day adaptations of traditional touring artists, hailing from a bygone era. These two Micro Music Events are held on the first (Secret Garden) and the third (Riverside Vibes) Sunday of every month, (weather dependant, of course).

Inspired by 13th-century travelling artists, poets and players, Troubadour Wagons is a modern-day reworking of the medieval style event venue, a travelling bespoke venue that is available to hire for micro festivals, events, weddings and celebrations. The very innovative idea, to rekindle the age-old tradition of a mobile entertainment venue, was very cleverly developed in response to Covid and the restrictions imposed on indoor arts and cultural venues.

The Troubadour Wagons come complete with recycled wooden bollards and spectacular bunting and entry arch, all designed with the 'wow' factor in mind, when welcoming audiences at each and every unique open air space. Read more about these beauties in this link and find out how to hire them for your next special celebration or music event.

Lucy Gallant


Lucy Gallant's unique voice soars with rhapsodic range, carrying the full spectrum of emotion in her songs. From light-hearted and ethereal to intense and edgy, Lucy's vocals propel her passion as visceral and versatile as her lyrics. Lucy Gallant is hailed as one of the most talented indie artists on the scene, writing her own original songs, fusing sounds of rock, reggae, soul, latin and folk-pop.

A local Sunshine Coaster, Oskar Campbell's unmistakable sound is the inevitable product of his old-school rock influences, infused with a love for modern folk, pop and soul music.

Tess Fapani - Originally hailing from Mossman in Far North Queensland, Tess Fapani has a love and appreciation for all music and genres, but is especially influenced by 'Sia', 'London Grammar', 'Florence & The Machine; 'Tracy Chapman' and 'Fleetwood Mac'.

Alivan Blu are an Australian Coastal/Indie folk duo from a small surf town on the far north coast of NSW. The Alivan Blu pair first started their journey together, travelling and surfing up and down the East Coast of Australia. Drawing from their experiences of domestic and overseas travel and growing up with the ocean at their front door, Alivan Blu's two acoustic guitars and their earthly blend of warm harmonies, will elicit a yearning for warm, balmy summer nights at the ocean or perhaps an adventure into the wild.
