Secret Garden Festival is held on the Downes Family Farm, a sustainable dairy farm owned and operated
by the family for generations.

Lynnie and Edgar Downes, the farm’s owners, have generously donated use of the farm in support of our charities and the wonderful Gardeners that come to the festival. Mumma and Puppa Downes are awesome, so make sure you look after the farm and give them a hi-5 when you see them grooving out to the bands!

 

DON’T BRING GLASS

It destroys the farm. Similarly awful things to bring are gas bottles, dickheads (don’t invite those guys, and don’t be that guy), beanbags, glitter confetti, drugs, BYO alcohol and animals. They’re all banned.

PUT IT IN THE BIN

Please don’t litter. Put your waste (including butts) in the compost, recycling and rubbish bins and keep the farm looking beautiful all weekend. 

TAKE YOUR TENT HOME

Whatever you bring to Secret Garden, please take it home with you. Including tents! 

RESPECT THE ART

We have built a wonderful world for you to explore and enjoy. Participate in this world with full enthusiasm, but please don’t damage or steal any of the art. In fact, if you see anything that has been damaged, take a moment to fix it so the next Gardener can enjoy it in its full glory.
