The Planting Festival


Tent City Hire has been part of the Folk Festival and other events held on site since it was established at Woodford over 20 years ago.

The Tree-Planting Weekends have always been such an important part of the development of the site and the culture of the event, which has now grown into the Planting Festival . Tent City Hire is proud to be involved in offering on site accommodation to patrons for this fantastic weekend .

We trust this will enable many of our regular patrons and new friends alike who do not have camping facilities or the time to get them together to enjoy the full experience of staying onsite at Woodfordia.

 Patrons staying at “Tent City” need to pre-purchase festival tickets that INCLUDE CAMPING as well as booking with “Tent City Hire” for accommodation. Upon arrival, patrons must exchange their tickets for armbands before proceeding to “Tent City”. Patrons with vehicles can drive to our reception area and our staff will assist you with parking. After being welcomed at the reception area, patrons will be escorted to their allocated tent – and just move in, and enjoy!

Accommodation packages are available as single or twin/triple share. Twin share is ideal, allowing plenty of room for beds, luggage and easy movement within the tent. Families and groups can be allocated tents together, but it is necessary to mention this when booking. 

The tents are carpeted, screened and fitted with a 12-volt light. All Tent City accommodation includes fold-up bed/s and mattress; you will need to bring your own bedding (sleeping bag or sheets, blankets & pillows etc.) if linen packs are not ordered.  Alternatively linen packs are available for hire. They consist of 2 sheets, pillow case, pillow, blanket, doona and doona cover (towels and toiletries are not included). Cost is $60 for a single bed and $80 for a double bed. Linen packs must be pre ordered.

Tent City at the Planting is located close to a permanent festival toilet/shower block.

Regular patrons will attest to the convenience, warm, friendly atmosphere and cooperative staff that makes this facility a popular alternative – these patrons have become friends over the years, and we look forward to catching up with familiar faces and adding new ones to our ever-growing Tent City “family”. See you there!
