Wallaby Creek Festival is a family oriented 3 day camping experience in the wet tropics rainforest of far north queensland. There is no accommodation on site apart from camping. Travel Beats offers a package of tickets and transfer and a luxury tent, and there is some accommodation available nearby at the Lions Den hotel. Hope this helps... ...

Jennifer MidgleyHi Nat, you need to organise a tent, the cabin accommodation is for the musicians. We actually have a spare accomm. marquee with a few stretchers so if you want a bed in there just let me know, just need to bring bedding.

Ok Wallaby Lovers <3 so the next festival is from Friday 30 Sep to 2nd Oct. Now the next day is a Monday and it is a Public Holiday :) The festival has been moved from the middle weekend of the school holidays to the last weekend. Ashley Holliday, when do you think the tickets will be for sale on-line? I know I would like to see a ticket lay-bye system set up for our patrons... who else would like to be able to pay off their ticket over the year? ...

Getting There!

 

HR

Home Rule Lodge: 07 40603925.

The festival is located at  Home Rule Rainforest Lodge,  Rossville,
Far North Queensland, 328kms/4 hours north of Cairns and just 40kms/40 minutes south of Cooktown [by car]
& approx. 3hrs north of the Daintree River via the Bloomfield Track [4wd]
& 4 hrs north of Cairns via the Mulligan Highway [2wd].

There are two options for getting to the festival from the South. 

Click for googlemaps…powered by unicorns
 

The Inland Road
This road is 100kms longer than
the coastal road, however is a similar in travel time. This sealed road is easy access for all vehicles.  From Cairns take the road to Mareeba via
the Kuranda Range. From Mareeba head to Mt Molloy and take the Mulligan
Highway through Mt Carbine and past the Palmer River Roadhouse to Lakeland.
At Lakeland continue along the Cooktown Developmental Road/Mulligan
Highway, past Little Annan Gorge, as far as the right turn into the coast road, Shiptons Flat Road, just before Black Mountain National Park.Travel south along the Shiptons Flat Road past the historic Lion’s Den Hotel (4kms)
to the Bloomfield track to Rossville (9kms).  At the centre of Rossville, left turn into River Road for the 3kms to Home Rule Rainforest Lodge and the Festival grounds.  This 3kms is a gravel road but not 4WD.
Distance: approx. 328 km
Driving time: approx. 4 hrs

The Coastal Road
The coast road is considered the most scenic of the two routes, but 4WD is highly recommended. Leaving Cairns you travel north to the Daintree River, cross the river via the
vehicle ferry (there is a fee, $18 one way), then continue through the Daintree Wet Tropics rainforest to Cape Tribulation. After Cape Tribulation the road becomes 4WD and climbs over the range (very steep with rocky creeks to cross) for 32kms until Bloomfield, cross the Bloomfield River bridge at Wujal Wujal Aboriginal Community and travel the now sealed road north through Ayton and along the edge of Cedar Bay National Park before reaching Rossville. Turn right at the centre of Rossville into River Road for the 3kms to Home Rule Rainforest Lodge. The scenery is spectacular all the way!Please be careful of the wildlife on the road.

Distance: approx. 230km
Driving time: approx. 4 hrs

Bus Service
Cairns-Cooktown-Express
 runs a daily bus service to Cooktown and the Lions Den 11kms from the festival.  Check the website for more details. Bookings 07 4059 1423
