Our environmental statement

What about this Gympie Muster site? Not a bad part of the world eh?

Gympie Music Muster was founded in 1982, long before people began to be concerned about climate change . Our festival founders, The Webb Brothers and their family have farmed this land for 4 generations. The festival began on a couple of paddocks on the their dairy farm a bit further up the Mary River Valley.

Looking after the land, the livestock and the waters was critical to them then and is just as important to us now.

These days, of course, we are all aware that we really have to do something about protecting the environment and reducing our impact on it. As a Festival and in conjunction with our landlords (QLD National Parks) we’ve been exploring new ideas to lessen our toll on the park. As one of the few events allowed to take place in a wilderness park, its not a bad idea to take an ecologically thoughtful approach to the way we do things, which we hope will also inspire our attendees in their own habits outside of the Muster.

We are striving to leave as small an imprint on our patch of dirt here as we possibly can by:

• Capturing all recyclable waste materials generated by Gympie Music Muster and other on site activities.

• Encouraging the use of recyclable or bio-degradable materials by all contractors at on site activities.

• Investigating with a view to implementing practices minimising waste

• Being mindful and vigilant custodians of our glorious shared bit of Queensland country
