Where can I stay? There are accommodation options at the Woolsheds, you can stay in the old shearers quarters for an authentic experience, or in larger, private cabins. The Woolsheds also has camping and caravan options for visitors.
How to get there? Jondaryan is located halfway between Toowoomba and Dalby, about a 30 minute drive from each. It’s approximately a 2.5 hr drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. There aren’t many public transport options in the area so driving is your best bet.
How much is it? The festival is free to attend, but food, drinks, and activities will cost you extra. It’s not a BYO event.
