Old Bar Beach Festival

Mudbishops Point Reserve, Old Bar


Event information

The Old Bar Beach Festival is an annual community event that attracts over 30,000 people each year during the October long weekend. Nestled on the dunes of the New South Wales mid north coast and located at the southern entrance of the majestic Manning River, Old Bar is known for its laid-back coastal culture.

The Kombi/Transporter swap meet Australian record attempt is one of the major highlights of the festival. The number of Kombis that arrive at the festival has steadily increased over the last five years, due to the support of many Kombi owners who have now made the festival an annual pilgrimage. Whilst the Kombi's are a highlight of this festival, there is much more to do over the two days. There is a huge range of market stalls, food stalls, local wine and produce tasting, live music, fashion parades, fireworks display, amusement rides and a whole lot more for you to enjoy at this family friendly event.

The closest major town to Old Bar is Taree. The Casino XPT runs daily between Sydney and Casino on the North Coast NSW line and stops at Taree. There are a number of bus and taxi services operating within the Taree region.
