Cairns Winter Solstice May 25, 2008

The Winter Solstice Celebration & Lifestyle Gathering is a 4 day/3 night outback camping adventure, that will be held from June 20 – 23, 2008 on the Tablelands, 2 hrs drive west of Cairns.

Throughout history, humans have observed this seasonal milestone and created spiritual and cultural traditions to celebrate the rebirth of sunlight after the darkest period of the year. The Winter Solstice demonstrates the enduring cycle of the heavens by an event that has been directly observable, year in and year out, century after century, for millions of years. The New Solar year begins with the turning point of the Winter Solstice, as it has down through eons-an unending cycle of dark and light, waning and waxing, ultimately representing nature’s birth, death, and rebirth. The Winter Solstice is a time to affirm our spiritual ties to nature through celebrations and traditions that are thousands of years old.

With over 80 local, National & International Producers, Dj’s & bands, performing over our 3 stages, The Winter Solstice Festival musical line-up has something for everyone & is not just about the music, we offer a huge array of different forms of entertainment.

The Festival features over 50 site artists including Roving Performances, Installation Art and Site Installations as well as our Children’s space, Dining by the River, an Indoor Cinema featuring Kiddies flicks & Mind expanding documentaries, Art & Music creation Workshops, Market stalls, Swimming Holes, Ice Art creations, The Healing Haven, Open Mic Jam session, Mask Making, Canvas creating, The WizDome, International Food Fair, Roving Markets, Bushwalking and much more.  All of this, combined with hanging out in the great Aussie bush with all your friends makes for a great weekend of fun & adventure.

The Winter Solstice Festival has something for everyone.

Remember – The Winter Solstice Festival is a sustainable event. Please take note of the practices we have in place at the Festival to minimise the impact on our environment.
