It's time to leave civilisation behind and enjoy a break from technology at the Jackeys Marsh Forest Festival! This is taking place from January 24 – 27.
This bi-annual festival celebrates the environment, music and the arts and takes revellers out of mobile phone reception areas and into the natural world.
Bring the whole family along to the beautiful Jackeys Marsh Valley for two nights and three days of music ranging from folk to rock. Performers include the Zucchini Clan, Pete Cornelius and the DeVilles, Lawless Quartet, Siskin River and Grim Fawkner.
Where is Jackeys Marsh? It's located 16 km from Deloraine, and just under an hour's drive from Launceston and Devonport. If you plan to stay overnight, you can use the camping grounds that are divided into two areas – one for those seeking a family-friendly refuge and another for party animals!
Check out the forest walks, children's entertainment, workshops and fresh produce. Learn how to dance swing or the tango, sustainable living, drumming, yoga, tai chi and more.
If you think you might make some purchases during the event, be sure to bring along cash as there are no cash machines or facilities onsite.
All that's left to do is enjoy festivities!
