Event date: 7 April - 9 April 2023.
Every Easter the gates of Hartwood, just south of Tambar Springs, open for the public to enjoy a long-weekend of first-class country music and entertainment in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
A campfire stage, set amongst the trees, presents a combination of professional and 'walk-up' artists and performers every night, from Monday through to Sunday. Meanwhile a second stage provides non-stop professional country music and bush poetry entertainment from Friday afternoon and all day Saturday and Sunday.
Campers are encouraged to come early and most do.
The gates open ten days prior to the start of the festival on Monday, March 27, 2023. This gives campers the chance to extend their stay in the peace and tranquility of Hartwood.
Hartwood has been called the people’s festival – pets and children attend for free. Hundreds of caravans, motorhomes, camper trailers, and a sprinkling of tents gather here for the week to enjoy the great country music entertainment, a laid back camping experience, and a special camaraderie with their fellow country music fans.
