After driving down the winding dirt road from the front gate to
the Festival, Glenworth Valley opens up before you. Flat green
meadows framed by a two hundred metre high wooded escarpment seal
the valley from the rest of the world. The valley is surrounded by
pristine temperate rainforest home to countless wallabies, wombats,
platypus, and lyrebirds. The tree-lined Popran Creek winds through
the valley and the whole 3,000 acre property is sprinkled with
shady swimming holes and banks perfect for lazing around.
