Over the years, it has amassed more than $20 million in donations, benefiting a wide array of community organisations and charitable causes. 

Tackling the iconic event in ultimate style involves immersing yourself in one of Australia’s most loved musical genres and celebrations. Held deep within the Amamoor State Forest, this festival is not just about music; it's an experience that blends the beauty of nature with the thrill of live performances. Ready to discover it all? Read on to discover how you can make the most out of your Gympie Music Muster adventure.

Embrace the Music. With over 100 artists across 6 venues over 4 days, the Muster offers a rich tapestry of country, roots, blues, folk, and rock music.

Prepare for Camping. As a camping and music experience, preparing for your stay is crucial. The festival takes place in a picturesque forest, so you’ll need to bring essentials suitable to the environment, including sturdy tents, comfortable bedding, and cooking supplies​​.

Join the Community Activities. The Muster is known for its community vibe, offering workshops, bush poetry readings, and the Gympie Mazda Kid’s Club. These activities provide a wonderful opportunity for all attendees to engage with the festival on a deeper level, learn new skills, and meet fellow music lovers​​.

Explore the Region. The Gympie region is a picture-perfect slice of the stunning Sunshine Coast, worth exploring on a broader scale if time permits. With its national parks, rolling hills, and the historic Mary Valley Rattler steam train, there’s plenty to see and do. Whether it's dolphin feeding at Tin Can Bay or horse riding on Rainbow Beach, extending your stay to explore these attractions will undoubtedly enhance your Muster experience​​.
