Event description


90 min from Newcastle and Sydney

We are hosting our next Secret Garden Festival Aug 2019 at our Mudbrick Home, in the hills, off–grid and surrounded by nature, serenity and exquisite birdsong. This is so much more than a music festival, it feels like coming home to your family in the forest.

Lyrebird Retreat offers a community space to share, grow and be inspired... a haven to remember and express your soul song. And we are excited to have Jye Sharp headlining our August Festival on our Red Gum Bush Stage.
