As we spread our wings on our maiden voyage, we want to welcome you all with hugs and kisses
and thank you for joining us on our migration to the Winton Wetlands. We wouldn’t have been able
to gather Under the Nest without all your love and support and our gratitude is hard to summarise
First of all a we want to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land - the Yorta Yorta people and
pay our respects to their ancestors past and present. We truly believe this site is something special
and we cannot wait for you to see it for yourself. It is our strong desire that you all feel as free and
safe as the sea eagle this festival was inspired by. In order for this to happen we need to cover a few
important points and recommend that everyone reads and follows the below:
»» All U18s MUST be accompanied by an adult in order to be admitted.
While we truly welcome all people of all ages, those under the age of 18 WILL require the
supervision of an adult as this is the requirements of our BYO policy.
»» No glass bottle policy!
BYO is permitted but all cars will be searched for glass on entry.
»» No dickhead policy
Under The Nest is built on the principles of love and respect and as such antisocial behaviour
(including but not limited to trespassing, substance abuse, excessive campsite noise and
disruptive actions) will NOT be tolerated.
»» This is a LEAVE NO TRACE event!
There is a lovely natural camping site which we encourage you all to utilise, however PLEASE
respect the environment and clean up after yourself (INCLUDING CIGGIE BUTTS!)

perfect location to stock up on all your last minute supplies (eg. water and ice) not to mention
supporting the local community that has supported us.
