Each year, Curryfest transforms the town of Woolgoolga into a bustling centre for celebrating the Punjabi heritage of the region. On September 23, the festival celebrates its twelve years by showcasing Indian music, dance, culture and of course, plates upon plates of curries.
Head to the Woolgoolga Beach Reserve where the town's breathtaking Sikh temple is visible from its hilltop location. Apart from the Australian beachside views, you'll feel transported to the vibrant streets of India with all of its sights, sounds and smells. While a host of events take place in the lead up to the festival day, the main draw is of course the 170 food and market stalls that draw in thousands of visitors each year. The aroma of the brightly coloured curries will make for one mouthwatering day and a food coma should be expected by the end of it.
The tents also include a mindfulness and meditation zone, along with a a special kids zone with rides and entertainment.
