Festival Info

Getting To Mushroom Valley

Mushroom Valley is located on a magical property between the Whitsundays and Mackay.

If you are flying to the area you have the choice of 2 airports. Mackay Airport or Proserpine (Whitsundays) Airport, the festival site is almost the same distance from both.

Where To Stay

We strongly recommend staying in Airlie Beach while you're here and checking out the reef and all the amazing sites The Whitsundays have to offer, it's a spectacular region!

For those of you arriving the night before please stay at the local caravan park St Helens Gardens, only 15 minutes from site (below).

It is owned by a lovely local family that are very friendly. They have powered sites as well as cabins.
