(incorporating the Australia Day Long Weekend)
The next Sydney ConFesters Gathering will be 10am Thurs 23rd to 3pm Mon 27th January 2020, incorporating the Australia Day long weekend.
The location is 256 Webbs Creek Road, Webbs Creek – the Outdoor Adventure Camps, Castle Mountain – including permanent kitchen and shower/toilet block for your convenience and strung along along enticing swimming holes – all part of the beautiful Hawkesbury valley 60km northwest of Sydney.
Yes, prices have gone up! This is due to the daily fees charged by the site owner - we have to cover our costs so that Sydney Confest can continue to be an ongoing event. But where else can you spend five days/four nights being free amongst beautiful people for less than $25 a night? Remember also that the site includes showers, toilets and a kitchen - so we can spend less time setting up / packing away and more time enjoying ourselves with our friends!
Anyone who is feeling super-generous and is also able to cover the cost of someone less fortunate than themselves, please contact us and let us know.

How do I Participate?
How We Operate
Thinking of running a Workshop? Post it on the Facebook event page to promote it and get people excited to attend. This is a lovely, intimate way to share your knowledge and skills.
If you have a musical instrument, please bring it along with you. There is usually a drumming/music circle each night with dancing, joy and laughter to restore your body/mind system.
Food is in the way of community cooking of vegetarian meals in the community kitchen. The kitchen will be stocked with basics such as grains and legumes, herbs and spices and Chai ingredients.
In the spirit of community, we ask that all participants bring ingredients to share in the community kitchen. The kinds of things we need are: Fresh fruit and vegetables, seeds of all kinds, protein foods such as various milks, tofu and good fats such as oils for cooking and salads. Foods that must be refrigerated to be kept in the communal esky.
