Want Accommodation for the Woodford Folk Festival

Do you want to stay close to the action but want a quiet place to sleep, a hot shower and a comfortable bed with a mattress to sleep on? Then we have the place for you!

We are right next door to the Woodford Folk Festival and have accommodation for 138 people. We are an easy 10 minute walk across the paddock to the festival. Park your car for the week and make the most of your convenient location and walk to the festival each day. This way you can drink and not have to worry about driving, finding your car in the car park and having to deal with traffic lines of both people and cars on busy days.

This establishment is a purpose-built centre for school camps, however it can be your perfect backpacker hostel for the festival. Great if you are travelling overseas, interstate, or locally and don't want to bring all your camping gear!


9 unique eco-cabins provide bunk accommodation for up to 138 people.


Full commercial kitchen and large open plan undercover dining hall available for your use.


Female and male toilet and shower block. Cleaned and stocked twice a day

Our unique rustic cabin design uses a variety of reclaimed materials to build a structure that is both functional and kind on the earth's resources. Cabins consist of slatted timber deck floors, secondhand vinyl billboard walls, tin roof and solar lighting. 8 cabins consists of one large room with 8 bunk beds in each. There will be separate female, male, family and couple cabins or if you have a large enough group, a cabin just for your crew can be arranged. If you book for 10 or more people we will allocate a cabin for your crew exclusively. If your group make separate bookings but you want to bunk in together please drop me an email with the name of your booking and the name of their booking and I will match you up and allocate you to a cabin together. Bookings are for a 2 night minimum.

One of our cabins is split into 6 separate rooms which has one bunk bed in each (2 beds). This cabin has a common hall way and each room is divided by a sliding door which is not lockable. This is normally our teachers cabin and is referred to as the private room when making your booking. These rooms are available for a minimum of 6 night stay and booked as a 2 bed package. So whether you choose to book this room for just yourself, you and your partner or you and your child it is one price per room for a 6 night minimum.
