Nayri Niari Good Spirit Festival is a camping festival in a bushland setting. We invite you to join us to create this grassroots event and remember that we have limited facilities. Read the info below and be prepared with everything you need to have a comfortable and happy weekend.
Respect the land and earth, tread lightly and leave only footprints. We would love this to be a zero waste festival. Please be responsible for your own waste – If you bring it in – then take it out with you and do what you can to act consciously about your waste creation and consumption.
The festival and camp areas are located on the same property/ paddock. For the three days, we will create a temporary village and community together. We ask that you please stay in the allocated areas and not camp on neighbouring properties, beaches or bushland areas.
Cars, Campers and Caravans.
Cars can be parked at the festival entry. After you have set up your camp please move your car to the front gate so that our camp is safe and clear of vehicles for families and children. An area will be reserved for campers and caravans.
There is no power available to campers – sorry folks!
There are no showers on site but……. there is a beautiful salt water bath within 5mins walking distance.
Toilets are porta-loos with an option of a composting toilet to help create ‘material’ for the HuManure workshop.
We are creating a child and family safe DRUG AND ALCOHOL FREE environment. This is a non licenced event. There will not be alcohol available for purchase. Please be respectful that this event is a gathering on country for ceremony, celebration and connection to culture and to each other. Care for yourself and your community.
If your behaviour is effecting the safety of others you will be removed.
