Driving from South - Drive along the

kilometre, then turn left into Woodrow
Driving From North - Turn off the
Bruce Highway at Highway 85 (Kilcoy),
just short of the Caboolture turnoff,
and follow the D’Aguilar Highway
to Woodford. Travel four kilometres
after Woodford and turn right towards
Beerwah, travel one kilometre, then turn

A popular option is to take your bicycle
on the train to Beerwah, Beerburrum or
Caboolture stations, and then it’s a 25 to
30 kilometre ride to Woodfordia. Detailed
route descriptions are on Epic Cycle’s
website – www.epiccycles.com.au
Carpooling is a great low impact way to
get to the festival. We recommend visiting
www.coseats.com for more information.
As The Planting is held in Winter, expect
mornings to be cool and the evenings chilly
to cold. The days can range from sunny to
quite hot with the possibility of rain.
During The Planting people have the
unique option to camp in the festival
grounds. For The Planting the showers
have been upgraded to hot water for
patrons comfort for the cooler nights.
All amenities are adequate but basic.
It will be quite cool at night, so come
well prepared with warm bedding and
clothes, especially a jacket and warm
hat. Sunscreen and sunhat for those
warmer, sunny days should also be
considered. We suggest that you pack
an umbrella or raincoat, and suitable
shoes, in case of rain. In fact, be
prepared for any eventuality.
• There is no electricity available
on-site for patrons’ campsites
unless they require it for life support
• There is no site lock-up so all
valuables remain the responsibility
of the camper and we suggest you
lock them in your car which can be
parked next to your camp.
• No fire or glass are allowed in the
festival camping grounds.
• Please do not drive around the site
once you have set up camp.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be
available from Friday evening to
Monday morning for reasonable
prices. You’re also welcome to bring
your own cooking facilities to ensure
you keep your strength up over
the weekend, but please note that
campfires are NOT permitted – gas
cooking is fine.
To help with the enviro projects
would you please wear closed in
shoes, sunscreen, hats and gloves.
Secateurs, mattocks, forks and
knowledge are welcome.
Water is always a precious commodity at
the festival site as we are self-sufficient.
We would appreciate it if all patrons could
help us in conserving water by limiting
themselves to one short shower per day
and check that taps are not left running or
dripping. All tap water on-site is drinkable
but for conservation and your own
convenience please bring all the drinking
water you’ll need with you from home.
Please help us keep the festival site
clean and green. Recycling stations and
industrial bins can be found on the festival
streets and at the amenities blocks in the
camping and parking areas. If camping,
please recycle as much as possible using
the recycling stations and bag your general
Composting bins will be clearly labelled
and placed around the festival precinct.
Please use the bins to dispose of your
organic waste as we have an onsite
compost program in place.

The festival site is a 500 acre
property. The site is developed into
parklands dedicated to the arts and
humanities, however it is still a
bushland setting and we request for
your own health and safety that you
follow these guidelines:
• Footwear is strictly compulsory. Be
aware of the possibility of snakes,
stinging plants and insects.
• Watch your footing. This festival is
on a bushland site and the ground
• Do not light camp fires.
• Please stay within the festival
grounds. Do not enter forestry area
or neighbours’ property.
• All tap water on site is of drinkable
quality. Dam water and creek water
are unsuitable for drinking.
• No swimming in dams. Water quality
is not suitable for swimming.
• Every drop of water is precious, so
• Plastic, sharp objects, cans and
cigarette butts all endanger native
wildlife, please dispose of them
• Children must be supervised at all
times. You are in the bush.
• Remember - hollow logs, old tyres
and gullies may be the habitat of
snakes, insects, birds and other
animals. Please leave these well
The Planting welcomes people with
disabilites. We are constantly working
on ways to improve the site and the
experience for all but we do need to
advise that the festival site does offer
some challenges for those with mobility
problems. The event is held on a rural
property (an old dairy farm) and the
terrain is often uneven and/or sloping.
The pathways are either dirt or gravelled
and can be difficult to negotiate for
people in wheelchairs or with mobility
problems. The disability amenity blocks
provided are clean and sturdy, but
basic. If you feel that you would benefit
from the support of a carer while you
are at The Planting, it may be possible
for the carer to receive a complimentary
ticket. Such tickets are allocated on a
needs basis. For more info please email
