Festival of Small Halls


Festival of Small Halls takes the best folk and contemporary acoustic artists performing at two of our country’s largest festivals, and sends them on the road to tiny halls in communities all over Australia. Produced in partnership with many other wonderful Australian festivals, regional partners and great lovers and supporters of folk and contemporary acoustic music, it’s an opportunity for music-lovers from welcoming communities to invite artists from home and abroad.

The artist line-up consists of at least one Australian artist and one international touring artist, who play music of exceptional quality and heart. They are handpicked for the tour, not only because of their beautiful songs and tunes, but because they have the ability to connect with people through storytelling, a good joke (or a truly terrible one), wonderful warmth and a real interest in visiting places a little off the beaten track. Each night of the tour is hosted by volunteers from the local community, so it’s also a chance for a town to show off their warmest welcome and most enthusiastic audiences.

From our farmlands to the flood lands, the rain forests to the outback, Festival of Small Halls audiences can expect a beautiful night of original music, as well as a chance to catch up with their families and friends during a supper break. It’s an all ages event and all are welcome.

We don't mean to boast, but not only is Lake Gkula, chemical-free and has a natural wetland filtration system that delivers a safe habitat for wildlife and people alike. It ALSO just happens to be amazing for swimming, lounging around on the shore under a shady tree, and for splashing around in our rock pools or under our little waterfall. Ticket holders for Woodford Folk Festival will be able to access the lake during this year's event, so pack ya togs!

Amenities Attack – tackling the blue tac and sticky tape on the inside of the blocks.

Emu Parade – family fun picking up rocks and dead branches to save our mower blades.

Magical Mystery Mission – lots of little jobs here and there, great for handy folk who like variety and can do anything.

MegaShed Makeover – sorting and organising our main storage shed – great for Virgos and Mari Kondos!

Moperoos – cleaning some tent walls to make them sparkle and look new again.

Silviculture Superheroes – trimming trees in the campgrounds and along service roads.
