The Town aims to explore what makes an ideal Town and sustainability is a vital part of this. We are aiming to set a new standard for Australian Festivals for Sustainability. Lets get as close to zero waste as possible, co-creating an environment that naturally stimulates you. Also respecting the beautiful land with fresh waterways, a thriving eco-system and on-site creatures of all types. We ask all Town Residents to explore this and create an awesome mirror for our everyday lives.
We aim to provide a beautiful space where you can naturally relax, be stimulated and get ridiculously silly! We want everyone to have a creative uplifting weekend where you come home inspired and full of good energy, not drained. Party naturally, sleep and eat well over the weekend, and set the tone to keep doing this forever and keep our scene sustainable. If you can enjoy what we do naturally, we believe then we have created the perfect space that doesn’t require enhancing to be enjoyed. Creativity over consumption another key ethos of The Town.
We recommend having a weekend off, but If you do smoke over the weekend, pretty please always use film canisters and the provided mannequin heads for your butts
Sustainable Transport + Camping
The site is humble in size for the amount of people we are expecting, and to enjoy it in it’s natural state all campsites except Vanland will have a carpark or drop off point and be walk in. Please no busses/trailers, keep campsites humble and consider what you can bring to your suburb so it becomes a fun communal village. This helps us spread throughout the site, making sure everyone is comfortable and feels a sense of community and sharing. Packing light means partying smart and in a way where less is more, which is totally in line with our ethos. Do BYO Mailbox and anything else you think will brighten the suburb you’re in!
*Please arrive in full cars. Carpooling page here– and note all cars with less then 3 people will need to pay $20 which goes straight to local CFA*
All our food and drink stalls will be zero waste, operating with washable cutlery and crockery or compostable plates. Be a Town Pro and bring a plate, cup and crockery and wash your own after purchasing at the wash-stations. We also ask that you don’t bring disposable rubbish. Tupperware and smart storage of food, a reusable bottle, and no plastic or glass are such a huge help and teaches us how to operate more simply and take responsibility. No excessive alcohol such as kegs, and only bio-glitter please. These simple steps by everyone will set an amazing standard and mean we can party without rubbish. Last year, everyone took home their waste and we only generated Two 3-metere cubic skips of rubbish! Lets aim for zero waste this year, it truly is possible <3
This is a collective effort and we are so grateful to have you beautiful people on board our experiment! Lets set the standard for showing how we can live our lives sustainably, both at and away from parties!
