Central Coast NSW

Located at Mount Penang Event Park, Kariong, just a few minutes from the M1 between Sydney & Newcastle is the gateway to the beautiful Central Coast NSW. 

Girrakool is a small, intimate festival with a fantastic lineup of talent. Some of the best from OZ & always 1 or 2 internationals. The versatile pricing structure allows for 1, 2 or 3 day passes & the price for 3 days is more than reasonable. Its a breeze to park, (or camp) with all of the parking no more than 100 metres from the Big Top....which is another attraction, providing shelter from the baking sun, or the torrential rain, one never knows what one will get with the weather on the Central Coast. 🙂 Basically, walk in, unfold your chair, (leave it there for 3 days, no one will touch it!) & be totally blown away by amazing talent & a bloody nice crowd as well. 😁

Bands and sound quality outstanding. Friendly environment where everyone looks out for each other and play nicely. Polite. Not seen an idiot there yet! Food in 2019 was exceptional. Less food choice this year but found one that suited my diet requirements. Thanks Hayley Lauren Mast

Girrakool getting bigger and better every year. Brilliant relaxed atmosphere in the camping area and festival grounds. Highlights were Derek Nash and Ben Waters who were just a class act and as always 19-Twenty who just kill it every time they perform.

Loved the whole Girrakool Festival, but I specifically came to watch/hear Gambirra MOB. It was my first Festival and I was so impressed with everything; the Welcome to Country, the Aboriginal dancers, the fire and poi twirlers, all of the performers/musicians, the food stalls and the atmosphere for everyone to join in - thank you to the Organisers.

The venue is perfect and the line-up world class. I loved all the acts, but Ben Nash and Derek Waters were unbelievable and, as a harp player myself, I can't go past Aki Kumar and Ian Collard (and of course Andy).

The whole package! Ease of access, ease of camping, vigilant yet relaxed security, great bands, plenty of room to move, great activities for children and adults alike. Can't knock it!

The fantastic line up of music. The fact it is help under a massive marquee so rain doesn't stop play.Being able to walk around the beautiful gardens each morning before the music starts.

The surprise you get when bands who you’ve never heard of come out and blow your mind. Girrakool gives you these surprises every year. Great tent too to keep the sun and rain worries away 🤟😁

Steve Edmonds absolutely rocked as did Ben Waters and Derek Nash. All the acts were top class but I think one of the best things about Girakool was the chilled and friendly atmosphere over all three days. What a fantastic festival!!
