Event description


90 min from Newcastle and Sydney

We are hosting our next Secret Garden Festival Oct 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.

After an epic Burning Seed gathering we have decided to create this months gathering as an 'After Burn'. With all the best DJ's from Music Medicine Magic Spoken Word to performance by Marty B Right and a Sunset Fire Show by Bella Fuego to lead us into the evening of epic DJ sets. This is going the kind of party your going want to move your body to, Fire, DJ's and dance, under the stars with all our favourite humans and many more new tribe.

"Hello to the beautiful organisers of the Secret Garden Festival -my
partner Aaron and my best mate Karlie attended the festival on the
weekend. We were blown away by the event. What a beautiful space you
have created. We all left on Sunday afternoon with a great feeling of
community and connection. You should be all proud of yourselves for
creating this space for people - it is so needed. See you next time"
