To help us improve various aspects of our
festival, we would appreciate your feedback.


We offer a natural setting and a relaxed atmosphere.
The historic Maldon township has an ambience dating from the Goldrush, good food, local wines, pubs, churches, gardens
and the world famous Maldon Steam Train.
