If you love music, food, festivals and camping The Gympie Muster is the place to be, you don’t have to be a country music fan as there really is something for everyone, so give it a go and get ready for one hell of a party.
Amamoor Creek Sate Forest Park, located just outside of Historical Gympie, creates a picturesque home site for one of Australia’s largest outdoor Music Festival, entrenched in community spirit far removed from ties, clocks, suits and schedules. Thousands of festival goers are attracted every year by the smorgasbord of diverse programs rich with our country’s finest musicians, the bush land setting laced with inviting whiffs of campfire cooking and fresh bush eucalypt, the easy camaraderie created by companionable patrons all set to simply enjoy themselves, “there are no strangers at the Muster, only frindsyou haven’t met yet”
Over the course of the past 34 years, the growth of the Muster has enabled the entertainment line up to diversify into an exciting mix of musical and entertainment genres while still maintaining strong country roots. As well as traditional and modern country music, entertainment within 8 venues and many bars include an aural collage ranging from folk, bluegrass, balladeers, the gospel, blues, bush poetry, a celebrity guest debate and the momentous competition of the Maton Talent Search where future careers are established.
The Muster is more than just a spectacular celebration of music – over 50 community groups and 2000 volunteers annually help the Gympie Muster team stage this non-profit community-based festival to raise funds for charities Australia-wide. Since its inception, the Muster has raised over $14M for charities.
