Folk Festival St. Albans

April 21 - April 24

Event Navigation

St Albans Folk Festival, held over a weekend close to Anzac Day, is home to quality Traditional & Contemporary Folk Music, Australian Bush Music, Music Sessions, Workshops, Dances, Poetry and Children’s Activities. The event showcases local and international performers, song writers and musicians. The festival runs a market of food, produce and other stalls. Patrons travel for the day or camp on the banks of the McDonald River 20 kms from Wisemans Ferry in the beautiful Hawkesbury River area, North of Sydney and West of Gosford.

The village has one of the oldest pubs in Australia, the Settlers Arms and a Historical Cemetery.

How to get there from Sydney

Travelling from Sydney to Wisemans’ Ferry you cross the Hawkesbury River on the Webb Creek Ferry and meander through the McDonald Valley to historic St Albans on the McDonald River.

The Webb’s Creek Ferry Road is now sealed all the way to St Albans.

There is an alternative route via the Wisemans’ Ferry – it is largely unsealed but may be more suitable for long vehicles because of the sharp turn & decreased width of the St Albans Bridge.

How to get there for those travelling from the Central Coast or North of there

On the Freeway travelling south take the turnoff for Central Mangrove and Somersby (somewhere between Gosford and Peat’s Ridge) . Follow signs for Central Mangrove, Mangrove Mountain, Spencer then St Albans. No need to take any ferries.
