Palm Creek Festival 2015

Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend – Palm Creek Festival

While half of Townsville Ukuleles were enjoying the lovely “Magnetic Island Home Brewers Festival”, another part of the group were solidly entrenched in their camps at the Palm Creek Festival.
We caught up with the “Whitsunday Ukoholics” who were surprisingly low key (probably after a big night jamming on rum) Well most of them are pirates and sailors! However they have taken to camping and their beautiful retro caravans are pure artforms.
Most of our mob are so diverse in their love of music and dance and the Palm Creek Festival did not disappoint.
Our focus, however was the Ukestra. With a couple of practice hours leading up to the final performance, both audience and players were thrilled in what was achieved. Newcastle Ukestra Mark Jackson and his partner Jane Jelbart whipped us up into a performance, which those of us from Townsville Ukuleles will never forget.

Thanks guys for the nice review, we had a great festival! Our blog was a bit longer ( It was lovely to meet Cole-Lee and Lindsay the other day down here in the colder climes.

Hi Mark
Hope the rest of your North Qld trip was as successful as Palm Creek. You really wowed us. If you plan another jaunt up here give us fair warning. Townsville Ukuleles would love to hold you prisoner for a couple of days.

Warm regards from Annie in always sunny Townsville
