Neurum Creek Music Festival is a local acoustic music camping weekend held at Neurum Creek Bush Retreat in September each year. The 2014 festival will be held on the weekend of the 12, 13, and 14 September.

The main festival area (stage and bar) incorporates a magnificent old tree, atmospherically lit at night. You may wish to bring your own chair or picnic blanket for the concerts.
