More information

Discover a colourful marketplace with tasty treats, handmade crafts, clothing from local designers and an eclectic mix of entertainment. For three days, Wide Open Space promises to feed your mind, tickle your artistic fancy and get your body moving! It’s a chance to celebrate art, music and creativity amidst the stunning Red Centre surrounds. It’d be hard to find a broader range of music in one place with bass music throwdowns, to chilled folky acoustics; from funky house music by the pool, to late night synth experimentations, afternoon reggae sessions to nocturnal shredding thrash metal on offer across multiple stages. Take in one of the many performances going on across the weekend including a tapestry of cabaret and burlesque, circus and aerials with a whole lot of dress-up’s! Or join a forum or lectures that spans dance, culture, sustainability to politics. Held an hours' drive from Alice Springs at Ross River Resort, the main accommodation option is camping. There are a small number of private cabins at Ross River Resort, however book early to avoid disappointment.
