Its our mission to become one of Australia’s greenest events. To achieve this goal, we want to reduce our waste target by half from our last event.
We are a Leave No Trace event.
How we can do this:
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE
REDUCE – what you bring. Only bring what you really need! Take things out of wrappers before you pack them.
REUSE – BYO cup or reusable bottles. No single use packaging.
RECYCLE – Ensure you sort your waste and recyclable goods separately and place in appropriate bins.
CWWT is pleased to announce they are partnering with their friends at Treecreds to promote safe and sustainable travel, to and from, the festival site in 2019.
This year all incoming vehicles will be required to present a vehicle pass on entry at the gates. The pass will be available online for $20, so please come prepared. Proceeds from the transport pass cover the following:
- carbon credits from an accredited reforestation project in WA (equivalent of 150kg carbon dioxide emissions)
- free bus shuttle service from Tallarook train station; and
- super cheap bus rides from the city.
Founded in 2009, Treecreds® is an accredited provider of carbon-offset solutions and sustainability services. Treecreds only collaborates with like-minded organisations, read about the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Project CWWT are supporting here – https://www.treecreds.com/what-we-do/forestry-projects/
Please note that NO fires or naked flames are allowed at any time.
There are only permits for fires attended to and monitored by the CFA.
A bonfire will be burning bright all weekend for your fiery comfort.
For safety reasons, we ask that fire maintenance is left to the local volunteer fire service that will be in attendance at all times.

WILL THERE BE SHOWERS ON SITE?

IS CWWT BYO?
Our Friends Farm is a licensed venue, whilst BYO is allowed, we must respect the conditions the venue is subject to under the Liquor Licensing Act.
CWWT is a limited BYO event. Each vehicle is allowed one bottle of decanted spirits and one slab of cans. Individuals travelling by bus, are permitted either twelve cans or one decanted bottle per person. Alcohol in excess of this will be confiscated. Strictly NO GLASS. Ensure to decant glass bottles into plastic prior to arrival. Cars will be searched as a condition of entry.
Can I bring drinks to the stage?
Please be aware that CHI WOW WAH Town Centre (Event Space 1), which includes the stage, clubhouse, bars and all food outlets, where all the entertainment takes place, is a fully licensed area.
We have been able to negotiate a unique situation that allows patrons to BYO alcohol into the entertainment area for personal consumption. This means a single vessel/cup up to 2L per person. Leave your 50-litre esky at the campsite. Large eskys, drink coolers larger than 2 litres and of course or any glass may not be taken into the entertainment area.
WHY? 3 reasons:
1) We are operating within a licensed venue and your safety is legally our responsibility, especially while you are in the entertainment area. Excess alcohol can lead to unnecessary intoxication, health risks and anti-social behaviour.
2) Sustainability and reducing waste is a massive focus for us. We are operating on a leave no or minimal trace ethos, where everyone brings their own vessel or hires a cup, we use kegs and minimise single-use as much as possible.
3) The bar at CWWT contributes to the festival’s ability to exist. CWWT is depending on everyone to buy a couple of drinks at the least. Bar prices will be inline or cheaper than your local pub, served with love.
WILL ICE BE FOR SALE?
Yes. From the Bar, $6 per bag.
