Bondi Burrows
24th Sep 2016 - 25th Sep 2016
Wollombi Music Festival

We love a good camping and music festival, so when some friends from Bondi School invited us to join them at Wollombi we signed up immediately. In the end, those friends couldn't make it, but we discovered another Bondi family would be there to keep us company. We drove up Saturday morning, pitching our tent right up close to the entry to the festival field. It was a beautiful site, a gentle sloping field down to the main stage, with plenty of market stalls, food trucks, a bar and lots of kids entertainment. We soon found Kelda and Steve and their 3 kids, and settled down to listen to some chilled music in the sunshine. Come night time, instead of wanting to go to bed the girls insisted on dancing until the last band had finished. It rained overnight, and the rain woke us the next morning at 6am. After a coffee and bacon roll from the only food truck still on site, there wasn't any reason to hang around so we packed up our soggy tent and headed home. A snap decison to take an unsealed road back to Northern Sydney via the Hawkesbury River found us bumping along through forest and riverside scrub, with plenty of wallabies to spot. Gorgeous. We'll be back next year.
