The Design Collective – asked to revive and ignite the famous ‘Tamborine Scarecrow Festival’

After the roaring success of the previous two food festival events at Mount Tamborine (3000 people and 5000 people)  The Design Collective duo has been asked to bring their vision to the non for profit, community activated event to promote and encourage tourism to the mountain.

The Scarecrow festival, scheduled for 15/16/17th September will showcase live music, local artists, kids fun, delicious food and of course quirky Scarecrows created by locals on the mountain! All hush hush at the minute, but you can expect a huge old fashion fair at the sportsfield to encourage community participation.

Seaside Sounds this Sunday at its new location!

The Southern Gold Coast is beautiful, the iconic beaches, the beautiful (true glitter strip) Coolangatta is full of amazing stores, restaurants and creatives.
