The Bony Mountain Folk Festival is a delightful community event held every year at the Queensland bush retreat (of fifty acres) owned by our hostess, Norma O'Hara Murphy.  The property is situated in Southern Queensland 20 minutes outside of Warwick, 2 hours from Brisbane.
The festival commenced in 2011, so we are now coming up to our 14th year! Our "little festival in the bush" is a laid-back, stress-free week or weekend (your choice) with no big crowds or hustle and bustle. Music ranges from Bluegrass/Country/Bush Ballads/Jazz/Folk/Celtic/-and our new Comedy Club on Sunday! & our Walk Up Jamboree on Sunday -(full of surprises) will be a hoot.

Our not-for-profit, family friendly event, all run by volunteers, has become a well respected platform for up-and-coming artists. We delight in creating a very special festival, celebrating the best of Aussie Music and supporting local, home-grown emerging talent (no overseas artists accepted!)
OUR BONY MOUNTAIN BAZAAR will open on Weds 17th September!
