Tropical Winter Solstice - Music and Lifestyle Gathering 2009

Get your funkiest outfit on and join us at the magical Pethericks Rainforest to celebrate Tropical Winter Solstice - Music and Lifestyle Gathering 2009.

After last years total success, the Darwin Solstice Crew are back to bring the tribe together again.

This year's Tropical Winter Solstice - Music & Lifestyle Gathering will play host to local, interstate and international DJ's, live performers, visual artists, fire performers and many more.

The festival site is situated on private land owned by the Petherick family and they have generously provided the land once again for this years event. The festival site is approximately 1 1/2 hours drive from Darwin, Northern Territory, and is on the boundary of Litchfield National Park. There is a secret spring gurgling out of the side of the escarpment which provides cool clear drinking water for festival goers.

There is also a thermal pool which is hidden deep within the monsoon rainforest a minute's walk from the festival site, just on the edge of Litchfield National Park, and is the perfect place to have a swim to cool off, and to experience the magic within. This is where the healing space and children's adventure area will be located.

Walk along the river for 15 minutes through the rainforest and you will find Curtain Falls. It has a large rock ledge at the base of the falls to sit on which will allow the waterfall give you a perfect shoulder massage.

This area is sacred. Please remember to take away only memories, and leave no rubbish behind.

Experience the magic of life, music, fun, expression and dance.
