Festival Info

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, it is almost the same distance from both. 

We strongly recommend staying in Airlie Beach while your here and checking out the reef and all the amazing sites The Whitsundays have to offer.

A message from our wonderful Front Gate team… Some simple tips to help your gate entry to Mushroom Valley Festival faster,  smoother and stress free!

Gate Open Times

Gates will be open Thursday 14th Sept to Early Entry Pass holders from Midday – 10pm.
Gates will open Friday 15th Sept to ALL OTHER TICKET HOLDERS at Midday.
If you are hoping to arrive early on Thursday or stay late until Tuesday,  you will need to purchase an EARLY ENTRY PASS and/or LATE EXIT PASS (one per person).


Have your ticket printed or saved to your phone (don’t rely on internet connection).
Make sure your mobile phone is charged.
Have your CURRENT PHOTO ID ready. (ID must match the name on your ticket)
Turn up the screen brightness on your mobile phone.
If your screen is cracked or it has an old screen cover it may not scan so have a printed version of your ticket handy with your current photo ID.
Screenshot any tickets, emails or important information/ correspondence that you think you may need. Especially if you think there may be an issue with your ticket (i.e. you are volunteering for a market stall last minute).
DO NOT bring your PETS!
Arrive with a SOBER driver.
Please pay close attention to the signage, staff and volunteers…. Remember GRATITUDE NOT ATTITUDE!
