3 Week Countdown to Gondwana Festival 2021
Full program released and tickets on sale
Posted on 08.02.2021
With three weeks until the launch of the Gondwana Festival, the official program and tickets for the 2021 festival have just been released.
Described as a festival of a different kind, the program of events is being held during the month of March 2021. Spaces are limited for the festival to ensure a special intimate experience in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, in South East Queensland.
The official opening ceremony will be held at the former Binna Burra Lodge site with guests being seated on one of 211 carved trunk seats, each representing a thousand hectares of bush impacted by fires in 2019.
The spectacular location with 360 degree views of the mountain ranges will present guests, as the sun sets, a moving episodic story of the evolution of the ancient landscape that combines Western and Indigenous Knowledges and histories in spoken word, dance and song, performed by Indigenous artists.
This will be followed by a ‘kup murri’ dinner, where guests will experience learning about foods cooked in the ground using an Indigenous technique, before a feast marking the opening of the Gondwana Festival.
The Gondwana Festival is further supported by the Queensland Government, through Tourism and Events Queensland, and features on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar.
