Woodfordia owes its beautiful, cultural parkland to The Planting. Our organisation, when it purchased this property in 1994, had a notion that rather than just sing about issues facing the environment, we get our hands dirty by planting trees.
The festival is held on a 500-acre parkland located on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, on Jinibara Country, just over one hour north of Brisbane.
Shivoo Stock has been moved to Northcote Melbourne for the 13th April - one big ball!
