The Home Fire

Welcome to the Home Fire...

DECEMBER 10th-12th 2021, Gold Coast Hinterland

A fun-filled weekend of culture, knowledge, music, workshops, food, fun, & family.

Join us for an exclusive weekend of reconnecting through traditional cultural knowledge with Elder Uncle Rick Roser (Aus), Sonic Weaver WHAIA (NZ), Martin Renaud ‘Two Turtles’ (Canada) & many more amazing presenters …

Our Home Fire Gathering is purposely built to be a unique and intimate setting.

We have limited numbers we can hold to respect the land, water, and our environmental impact.

We aim for YOUR experience to be as potent as possible !


Reclaim the return to universal LORE and unconditional LOVE

Gather with us in the light of the DECEMBER FULL MOON. Nestled in the serenity of the Springbrook Ranges deep in the heart of the Gold Coasts’ preserved rain forest we’ll dance the nights away. With talented local musicians and wisdom facilitators you can wind your way through the days with some creative workshops, traditional teachings and fun in the sun.. all while you relax and reboot over 3 days of “glamping” under the stars. 

We aim to bring the joy back into our lives through ceremony, song, dance, health education and other modalities, weaving nature and harmony back into our bodies.

From the Heart of the Home Fire we’ll be cooking up some delicious and nutritious food in the wood fired oven, a great place to gather, communicate and make new friends.

Gather with us around the Home Fire under the Full Moon 


To the Indigenous people of this area of the Bundjulung Nation, known as the Yugambeh Language group, we acknowledge your elders of past, present, and emerging here on the country we gather.  

We acknowledge the elemental forces of the nature spirits, the tress, the animals, from the birds to the ‘Brave Ant’ and the sacred fresh flowing waters that run their way out to the Pacific Ocean.

Our hinterland Home Fire ground is most certainly a true paradise and one of Gold Coast’s best-kept secrets. Our hearts are aimed at being a conscious collaboration of caretaking the land and being as biodegradable as possible, leaving nothing but our songs in the breeze and footprints on the hearth.

Our intention over the weekend is to move together as one big family enjoying the many facilitators, workshops, fun, and music as possible with KOTAHITANGA/unity and harmony. 

Enough of the ‘too much to do ‘ motto… We’re here to go slow and grow. Having said that we will be power housing through some internal work to help you release much of todays pressure cooking feels and inject some inspiration and celebrations to get your inner flames firing again. 

With limited capacity capped at 88 treasured souls to join all of the amazing teachings we expect to deliver an exclusive experience with talented and deep wisdom carriers. Meaning we’ll be able to share more one on one time with you. Lets face it YOU DESERVE IT !!


Come release your voice and heart to the universal realms… We are all stars in the night sky, were here to celebrate YOU.


Opening gates Friday at 12 noon, come and find a spot to nuzzle into for the weekend set up your campsites,  take a refreshing dip in the water and prepare for our … Official Opening Ceremony Starting @ 4PM and dance your way into the night.


Saturday will start off with our powerhouse Manawahine Jessica stretching our bodies through Maori Movement and then a string of magic offerings to help educate and stimulate. Flowing into a rhythm-filled sunset feast with home grown Soul, Blues, Roots & Reggae will certainly have us shaking through the light of the full moon.!!


Sunday will be another day with sacred offerings our Chanupa ceremony in the morning we are so very humbled to be connecting to as well as some sound healing and panels of discussions. Imagine a day of calm rejuvenation, stimulation and reclamation.
