Sounds on Sunset at Sundowner Tiona near Pacific Palms

On the weekend we drove up to a place called Tiona on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales for a small boutique music festival called Sounds on Sunset. About 15 minutes drive South of Forster and 10 minutes North of Pacific Palms, Tiona is renowned as a great wedding venue having an outdoor wedding facility/ chapel called the Green Cathedral. This weekend there was no wedding, it was all about the music.

Token photo of Forster, a place I used to visit with my family for the Ironman Triathlon:

The festival was held at the caravan park which offered all sorts of accommodation from basic camping, backpacker cabins, right through to a cottage where you could have a spa and a comfortable bed for two. Entry was $25 which included free camping and BYO. Cheap!

The headline act was The Snowdroppers and the bands that played were mostly local and it was a great vibe for a few drinks by the water with what seemed like a few hundred friends.

The festival ran throughout the day and ended with a fantastic sunset over the lake. A note for next year, bring that jacket again because it was pretty chilli after dark. I didn't get great pictures but the ones I did are below. Enjoy.
