We're an open access festival

Anyone can apply to join the program

We’re particularly interested in authentic, diverse, and unusual ways of connecting to nature, so we’re looking for many kinds of event hosts including local artists, environmental orgs, nature connection practitioners, musicians, nature tourism operators, health and wellness practitioners, wineries, GP clinics, or local businesses.

We are looking for all sorts of creative, participatory, emotional, and remarkable experiences. They might involve the latest technology from VR to AI or they might encourage people to put their devices away and focus on direct experience.

We are specifically interested in events and experiences that influence our shared narrative around how important nature is to most South Australians and that deepen our personal relationship with nature.

Last year we had events ranging from free to $130 per ticket and 25% of events sold-out. It's free to register an event in the festival and you keep all of your proceeds.

"The wide range of celebrations the Festival supports are both personal and multidimensional. The Festival is a wonderful expression of the real fun in 'the call of the wild' even in our own backyard.”

“The Nature Festival itself is not just doing the same old ‘green and trees’… they’re really helping us engage in different ways. Whether that’s a ride through the park or connecting with First Peoples or just games—it's great!"

Nature is good for you, great for your brand

Over 90% of South Australians get out into our parks and beaches every year. More than 70% are happy to pay more for environmentally friendly products. 94% think conserving nature is of critical importance.

Whether you are an outdoor tourism operator, an eco-friendly cafe, local government area, a winery that cares about the land, or a renewable energy power company, love of nature is a strong and powerful differentiator that aligns with the values of the great majority of South Australians. The Nature Festival is a great way to  demonstrate your values as an organisation.

From sponsoring artists and events to innovative installations, we have a host of ways to activate sponsorships and engage your staff and your community.
