MULGOWIE MUSIC WEEKEND

Next event will be the first weekend in March 2019     

VISIT: Facebook: The previous Mulgowie Weekend for more details. (You will need to log in.)

See you Friday or Saturday or both! Tell all your friends and encourage those who may have missed this event in their calendar.
The gathering is held at the Mulgowie Hotel in the beautiful Lockyer Valley.
This bi-annual event is organised by acoustic music lovers and hosted by Publicans Kevin and Kylie.

Friday evening will start with a jam in the pub after dinner. Saturday morning there is a farmers market near the community hall and sports ground. Indulge yourself and purchase home-made body cleansing products, food, coffee, new plants for your garden and all manner of wonderful things.

There are NO blackboard concerts, and NO sound gear. It is purely an acoustic music jam weekend. You are free to jam in the pub, on the front verandah of the pub, on the cabin verandahs and under the garden rotundas. All styles of music welcome, though remember this is a 'community event'.

Camping is provided behind the pub and a limited number of cabin rooms/beds are available at each gathering - call, SMS 0437-736-799 or email Michael (editor).

Fee: $10 per head for the whole weekend for all who stay in the Pub grounds. Fees are collected to cover the costs of hiring the cabin facilities (including a kitchen and two bathrooms for use by all – open from Friday lunchtime). Those who secured a bed may be asked to donate a little extra.

STRICTLY NO PUBLIC BYO – please PURCHASE your alcohol from the pub!

Laidley is a small historic country town only 80k west of Brisbane, between Ipswich and Toowoomba on the Cobb & Co Tourist Drive. Mulgowie is 10k south of Laidley. Laidley is only a short drive away with pubs, supermarkets and coffee shops, as well as a newsagent, so if you forget to bring anything, you can get it there.

If you need more information please contact Michael (folkrag ed) at

See you all at Mulgowie!

See you Friday 9th March 2017 for a fabulous weekend-long acoustic music jam! Tell all your friends and encourage those who may have missed this event in their calendar. The gathering is held at the Maidenwell Hotel, Maidenwell which is a small township at the gateway to the Bunya Mountains.

This bi-annual event is organised by acoustic music lovers and hosted by the Hotel Publicans Lisa and Adam (cousins).

Camping is provided FREE behind the pub and there are toilets and showers available to campers. The camping area is spacious and you do not need to book, just turn up and set up. It is recommended that you bring your own drinking water.

The pub does excellent meals (lunch and dinner) and has EFTPOS facilities.

The event officially starts Friday evening with a jam in the pub after dinner. Saturday there is jamming in and around the pub and the camping grounds and Saturday night there is an unplugged blackboard concert starting at around 6:30pm – see one of the organisers to put your name down! All styles of acoustic music are welcome but remember this is a community event.

Strictly no BYO – please purchase your alcohol from the pub.  

This event, begun by Glen Donald over a decade ago, has been growing in recent years and is truly a wonderful, musically diverse acoustic gathering. The event has the full support of the publicans, the local community and local musicians.

GETTING THERE:

Maidenwell, gateway to the Bunya Mountains is on the Kingaroy-Cooyar Road.

From Toowoomba or Warwick, go straight up the New England Hwy. About 5 or 6 km past Cooyar,
there's a sign for MAIDENWELL. Turn left - about 10km.

Gympie/North Coast: a very nice one-and-a-half hour run through Nanango.

Brisbane: come up the Brisbane Valley either through Ipswich/Esk
or Caboolture/Kilcoy as far as Yarraman, then take the
Toowoomba turn-off south onto the New England Highway.
