Let The Wild in and Adventure Begin with this Unforgettable and Uniquely Australian 3 Day Festival.

On 21-23 April 2017 WILDfest™ kicks off in the NSW Southern Highlands with an eco adventure-packed festival program that will seduce you into exploring the magic of the region’s vast wilderness and breathtaking national parks. It’s a long weekend like no other as WILDfest™, delivers a unique celebration of nature through soul-stirring and authentic WILD experiences – as wild and unexpected as nature herself !

Festival participants have two choices – be pampered all the way with the all-inclusive 3 day WILDfest™ Premium Package OR create your own bespoke WILD adventure by selecting individual events and activities and arranging your own accommodation and transfers.

3 day WILDfest ™ Premium Package

The 3-day festival program weaves elements of the whimsical into trials of endurance and voyages of discovery to deliver moments of sheer magic! It’s a mixture of remote glamping with concierge, mouth-watering food experiences, exquisite insights into nature through specially designed hiking, abseiling, canoeing and mountain biking experiences, awe-inspiring performance art and enough stolen moments to just be.

Rejuvenating massage and the WILD bush spa anyone ?

Add in the WILD Native Feast degustation, a glow-in-the-dark boules tournament, night photography under the splendour of the milky way and a few more surprises we don’t want to share just yet! All nature-connect activities are optional but included as part of the package price alongside food, drink and accommodation. The festival organisers schedule your day based on the questionnaire you complete when booking. These are matched to either your fitness level or desire for a more leisure based or physically challenging activity choices.

WILDfest’s Premium Package experience is a carnival for the senses, far removed from your average weekend in the country.

Curate Your Own Festival from the Premium Package Experience

Urban adventurers may embark on bespoke adventures like WILD Native Feast with celebrated chefs in dramatic starlit settings, mountain biking through microclimate rain forests to a bounty of hand-squeezed juices and scrumptious treats, hiking to your deck chair a-top a breathtaking escarpment, or just sitting back and enjoying champagne and canapés in custom-built canoes.

Right on the mark to meet growing market demand for experiential wellness travel, WILDfest™ has raised the bar on Australian wilderness experiences for a new breed of world traveller. Tourism Australia’s Consumer Demand Project Nature Report highlights Australia’s greatest strength as being “World Class Nature” with “Nature & wildlife’ ranking highest in appeal above ‘food & wine’, with Asian and European visitors.

In 2015, NSW received an estimated 25.3 million international and domestic nature-based visitors – an increase of 10.5% year on year. International nature-based visitors alone spent some $7.8 billion in NSW – an increase of 18.8% year on year.   Furthermore the New Global Wellness Institute data shows wellness tourism accounts for 15.6% of total tourism revenues with wellness travellers spending 61% more than the average international tourist. Statistics show Australia leads the charge with in excess of 85% growth in the wellness market here since 2013. Now has never been a better time to introduce an event travel concept like WILDfest™

WILDfest™ creator and founder Amanda Fry along with business partner Lynne Shaw have assembled a formidable and committed team of experts and local businesses to bring to life a fresh and engaging 3 day adventure.

“Travellers are looking for real-time, authentic experience led holidays. You have to go beyond just offering a destination and craft an adventure and with WILDfest you are doing just that. We’re creating an innovative way to interact with the Australian landscape, to let loose, have fun and disconnect from your working life. We want to build a brand that can evolve and grow each year. This definitely is not your average weekend in the country!” Amanda Fry
