Nestled in the heart of the Enchanted Forest.
Our Gin House is a rustic style bar perfect for those who are enjoying some theatre or relaxing in the sun. You can sip on a wide range of gin and tonics or choose a classic cocktail. The Gin House is a great place to stop off and catch your breath before hitting the Main Stage!
RELAX AND LET THE TENSION MELT AWAY…
Camping isn’t exactly like having a nice comfy bed to sleep in, so we’ve got massage therapists mingling in the crowd at The Healing Field, ready to give you a quick neck, head or shoulder massage and help to get all of the knots out.
ENTER OUR VIRTUAL WORLD
Take some time away from the Main Stage and come explore our virtual world.
We’ve teamed up with the VR experts at REWIND and Blend Media to create an entire beach space set up with Virtual Reality Headsets.
Pull up a deck chair, run your toes through the(real) sand and order a cocktail, then sit back with your VR headset and experience the hot climates of our virtual world.
GET CLOSE-UP AND HAVE YOUR SENSES BAFFLED
Keep your eyes open and your wits about you…. there are strange things going on at Meraki this summer. Professional magicians will be passing through the crowds at our festival, performing feats to dazzle and confound for you at the drop of a (rabbit-in-a) hat.
GET LOST IN THE MAD HATTER’S MAZE…
Delighting in the joy and mischief of the Lewis Carroll classic, our Alice In Wonderland-themed maze is filled with crazy characters and incredible costumes, meaning that you never know who you’ll meet.
Set off in search of the Mad Hatter’s Cocktail Bar located at the very centre of our maze, but take care – by day, it’s a beautiful adventure space filled with fun and laughter. By night…. prowling creatures lurk in the darkness…
Feeling active? Love a challenge? Come and take on our climbing wall!
For those festival-goers who like fun activities mixed in with their music and food, try out climbing wall – it’s ideal for beginners and experienced climbers alike. From the very top of our climbing wall, it’ll give you an incredible view of the whole festival site…. and it’s a great way to work up an appetite before you go and overindulge!
THE SUN’S OUT – LET’S HIT THE POOL!
Is there any better way to cool off on a warm summers day than relaxing in a swimming pool? Whether you’re jumping in with friends or making a splash with the little ones, make sure to visit our summer swimming spot.
RELAX AND CLEAR YOUR MIND…
Not everyone goes to a festival for music and festival madness. If you’d rather take a few days to relax, unwind and find some peace, our guided meditation sessions will be just the thing to help you press ‘pause’ on life’s pressures and find a space that’s all about you.
TAKE A NAP – YOU’VE EARNED IT…
Amidst all of the action and excitement of a festival, we’ve created a few little spots that act as an oasis of calm. Whether it’s relaxing music, chilled vibes or just somewhere you can lie down and take an afternoon nap, if you’re joining us for the whole weekend, feel free to rest, recuperate and then get right back into the party spirit!
FOR THOSE WITH A COMPETITIVE EDGE

Stop by with your family or group and enter a new virtual world.
IT’S PARTY TIME….
The Meraki Summer Carnival will be a grand Masquerade Ball – slip on a mask and become someone else for a night…
ENTER OUR MAZE-LIKE PUZZLE AT YOUR OWN RISK
In addition to our giant maze, you can also get lost in our House of Smoke & Mirrors. Filled with smoke, obstacles and mirrors, you’ll be lucky to find your way to safety.
Distorted with curves, you may not recognise your reflection and you may lose your way….
Let’s take it to the streets!
Remember not all of the performers at Meraki will be on a stage – alongside the wealth of music, movies and comedy at the festival, we’ll have a variety of weird and wonderful street performers bringing light, life and excitement to our Summer festival!
From dance troupes and stilt walkers to magicians, our street performers will be out in force over the weekend, creating a spectacle to amuse and delight revellers of all ages!
SHARE YOUR VISION WITH THE WORLD
For those of you with a creative streak, get your hands dirty and express yourself in our Arts and Crafts spaces. Whether you want to spend hours crafting a masterpiece to express your innermost truth or just throw down some colour on a page to show how you feel in the moment, it’s a wonderful place for expression and release.
With the incredible music on our three stages, there’ll be no shortage of dancers at the festival, but we’ll have a number of professional dance troupes leading in choreographed performances, flashmobs and dance-off competitions.
