GETTING TO HOSANNA FARM STAY

We will be providing full directions to get to WildFire closer to the event. But if you are flying in we highly recommend that you fly into the Gold Coast Airport (Coolangatta) as it is only a 35 min drive.

ADDRESS: 4 Tunnel Road, Stokers Siding, NSW 2484

 STAYING ON SITE

Staying on-site for the full three nights of Wildfire is by far the best way to immerse yourself in all the festivities. 

Clean and spacious amenities blocks that have hot showers and flushing toilets located throughout the camping grounds. There is a small cafe at the reception where tea and espresso coffee will be available for purchase.

MEALS

All main meals will be catered using fresh locally sourced produce from the area. Our welcome dinner will be supplied by Hosanna Farm Stay as a long table affair. All other meals will be taken as two sittings in the dining room and we promise not to disappoint with a scrumptious array of food. (meals catered –  Thursday: dinner, Friday & Saturday: b/fast, lunch & dinner, Sunday: b/fast)

If you like to snack, we highly recommend that you pick up some nuts and fruit on the way to keep you topped up.  

CLOSEST GENERAL STORE

The closest store is in Stokers Siding 10min walk from the festival or you can drive to Murwillumbah approximately 15min to supermarkets, pharmacies and other retail stores. 

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN PREPARING TO CAMP AT THE FESTIVAL:

FACILITIES

The facilities at Hosanna are basic but they have HOT SHOWERS, flushing toilets and are kept clean and tidy. Please remember that peak times for shower queues are in the mornings and later afternoons so please avoid these times if you don’t want to wait.

Wifi is selective throughout the grounds but we hear that they are building a new NBN tower and coverage should be find come May 2020.

CAMPGROUNDS

Campsites are large flat grassy areas by the creek. There are many spots with plenty of shade under the trees while others have a little more walking distance to get to the festival and amenities.

WEATHER

The festival is conducted in late Autumn. Our weather can range from cool mornings to warm days in the mid 20’c. It is usually blue skies however rain season can linger into May so pack a raincoat and gumboots. So prepare for the cooler nights, with additional layers. A full weather report will be sent prior to the event.

YOUR BYO CAMPSITE

Remember that you are creating a temporary home at your camp. It may be a day retreat from the activities as well as a place to crash at the end of the day so please make sure you are comfortable and consider your camping gear carefully.

Don’t worry, here is a FULL CAMP PACKING LIST

WATER

Water is a precious commodity and while staying at Hosanna Farm stay please note that they are self-sufficient and take all our water from on-site tanks. We would appreciate if everyone would join with us in conserving water in the following ways: restrict yourself to one shower a day, turn the water off when brushing your teeth and please bring some water with you. Those are the basics. 

SUGGESTIONS FOR A COMFORTABLE CAMPSITE:

BRING YOUR OWN WATER

All tap water on-site is potable and you can refill but for conservation and your own convenience please bring all the water you’ll need for the duration. You can purchase spring water at the cafe on-site or at the Stokers Siding General Store. 

LIMITED ELECTRICITY AVAILABLE

Majority of the campsites are unpowered and powered sites are limited. Please be aware that you may need to bring your own lighting. Glamping tents have solar fairy lights.  BYO lighting; torches, solar lights and battery-powered lamps.

CARPARKS

There are car spaces for those that have cabins and huts. General camping and glamping will have access to drop off gear and then cars will be parked in the adjacent paddock. (3 min walk)  No cars will be allowed on-site once camp has been set up.

KEEP YOUR VALUABLES SAFE

Theft can be a problem as at any event, so please do not bring anything of value to the festival other than what is absolutely necessary. All valuables remain the responsibility of the camper.

NO FIRES, GLASS OR ANIMALS ARE ALLOWED IN THE CAMPGROUNDS.

SENSITIVE TO NOISE, BRING EARPLUGS

Majority of the campsites are tucked away in nature and are a short walking distance from the festival main area. Most evenings will be wrapped up by 10 pm. However, if you are sensitive to noise, for example, your neighbour is a loud snorer or are getting up for early morning yoga then perhaps earplugs might be a great idea if you are a light sleeper. 

We look forward to seeing you at WildFire this year for a fantastic festival experience.
