These incredible local speakers will be joined by a thriving herbal market over 45 stalls- selling medicinal and culinary herb seedlings, skincare, natural soaps and bodycare, herbal remedies and a TONNE of other amazing offerings.

Save your pennies and stock up, knowing you’ll take home the best quality remedies whilst also supporting your local herbal makers and growers!

Food + Drinks

We’ve got the BEST food stalls on the block (well I am biased, but you’ll agree when you get there) with a variety of gluten-free, refined sugar-free sweet treats, Joseph’s Middle Eastern food, Luke’s incredible curries, Mercedes empanadas, and a new vegan pizza truck!

As always we’ve got an Deadly Coffee on Walkabout- an indigenous social enterprise coffee truck which the HerbFest crowds love!

And there’s the cruisey tunes of Soul Tree Union to enjoy whilst eating and wandering around and something for the kids at the Kids Corner.

With its laid-back vibe, educational content and chats with friends new and old – there’s a reason people love coming to Sunny Coast HerbFest.

And – it’s definitely a welcoming event for all — from curious newbies to practitioners – we’re here to support you at every stage of the plant path.
