Beautiful and normally peaceful Amamoor Creek State Forest Park provides the perfect setting for this quintessential Aussie event, with over 50 hectares of well maintained, planned camping facilities, plenty of hot showers and toilets, and a central entertainment precinct. Located 40-kilometres south-west of Gympie, it's an easy drive 2-hours north of Brisbane, just 40-minutes from stunning Noosa and heritage listed Fraser Island.

This year the Muster will be in full swing from Thursday 23rd August - Sunday 26th August 2012.

For those keen to set up camp and arrive early, pre-festival entertainment will be on in the Crowbar Precinct from Tuesday 21st August and Wednesday 22nd August.

Over the course of the past 30 years, the growth of the Muster has enabled the entertainment line up to diversify into an exciting mix of musical and entertainment genres while still maintaining strong country roots. As well as traditional and modern country music, entertainment within 10 venues and 8 bars include an aural collage ranging from folk, bluegrass, balladeers, the gospel, blues, bush poetry, clogging, line dancing, music industry forums, a celebrity guest debate and the momentous competition of the Maton Talent Search where future careers are established.

The Muster is more than just a spectacular celebration of music - over 50 community groups and 2000 volunteers annually help the Gympie Muster team stage this non-profit community-based festival to raise funds for charities Australia-wide. Since its inception, the Muster has raised over $14M for charities.
