The Lyrebird Festival

Megalong Valley, NSW
November 14-17


The Lyrebird Festival returns in 2024, from Thursday the 14th to Sunday the 17th of November, celebrating the spectacular Megalong Valley with music, art, food & wine, talks & nature walks.
Founded and directed by the Bowerbird Collective, this event brings together some of Australia's finest musicians for a series of spellbinding concerts.

An iconic Australian species, and an evolutionary marvel, the lyrebird represents all that is sacred in the bush. They can be heard in the Megalong Valley imitating the calls of hundreds of other species, as well as producing their own thrilling sounds.

The Lyrebird Festival brings together art, science and conservation, and includes local culinary delights, intimate, world-class performances and an installation by internationally renowned artist Janet Laurence.

All events have been scheduled to allow for plenty of time moving between each location. All concerts and other events can be booked separately, or together with a festival pass. Pricing includes a 'Pay what you can' option.
