Sunny Coast HerbFest 2023

18 June 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Coolum Beach
  • This event has passed.

HerbFest is our annual celebration of our local herbal community, showcasing our makers, growers, practitioners and the stars – the plants!

Full of practical herbal education – with speakers and a demonstration tent. This year we’ve got:

  • Tim Nixon talking all things Psilocybin mushrooms.
  • Leonie Shanahan will show you how to grow herbs at home
  • Tame your stress with Claire Murrey – How to Choose an Adaptogen for your Stress
  • Wayne Celeban will tell you how to build healthy relationships with plants using Ayurvedic energetics
  • Heidi Merika will show you winter wellness remedies – glycetracts and throat sprays
  • Alyson Maier will share the lost art of earth healing traditions

These incredible local speakers will be joined by a thriving herbal market, with stalls selling medicinal and culinary herb seedlings, skincare, natural soaps and bodycare, herbal remedies and a TONNE of other amazing offerings.

Save your pennies and stock up, knowing you’ll take home the best quality remedies whilst also supporting your local herbal makers and growers!

Food + Drinks

We’ve got the BEST food stalls on the block (well I am biased, but you’ll agree when you get there) with a variety of gluten-free, refined sugar-free sweet treats, Joseph’s Middle Eastern food, Luke’s incredible curries, Mercedes empanadas, and a new vegan pizze truck!

As always we’ve got an Deadly Coffee on Walkabout- an indigenous social enterprise coffee truck which the HerbFest crowds love!

And there’s the cruisey tunes of Soul Tree Union to enjoy whilst eating and wandering around and something for the kids at the Kids Corner.

With its laid-back vibe, educational content and chats with friends new and old – there’s a reason people love coming to Sunny Coast HerbFest.

And – it’s definitely a welcoming event for all — from curious newbies to practitioners – we’re here to support you at every stage of the plant path.
