Magic in Mudgeeraba: music, Mfest, Mason Rack and more

Mudgeeraba really is like the little village that could.

Of all the communities of the Gold Coast it’s one of the only ones that has kept a historical element to its town square, with shady trees lining the streets and century-old architecture still to be found amongst its streets.

And it constantly offers a real variety of community and cultural events. From hosting Summertime Sessions in the Village (which is sadly over for another year), Mudgeerabarbie for the City’s skate-mad youth and Wallapalooza, which last year went national, more often than not, it’s worth crossing the big ‘ol Pacific Motorway to see what’s on offer.

Like this month, for instance.

Mudgeeraba Street Party takes place 1 May from 10.00am at the intersection of Swan Lane and Railway Street. It’s a party with a distinct heritage focus, running until 3.00pm. More info here.

MFest, on 7 May is a celebration of all things women. Held around mothers’ day each year the event features music, women’s health and spiritual elements and runs from 10.00am – 4.00pm at Springbrook State School. More at


Bands for Butterflies Variety Club Bash includes a campout and stellar entertainment from Mason Rack (pictured in feature image, with band)- who in the same month will grace the stage at Blues on Broadbeach. It takes place 7 May from 3.00pm at 179 Latimers Crossing, Advancetown.

Plus there’s more.

Mudgeeraba Education Centre has an open day on 14 May. There’s a dinner dance for the Mudgeeraba Show on 4 June. And Zest Fest takes place 26 June at Beechmont Community Centre.

Both the Mudgeeraba Show and Big Boyz Toyzzzz at Advancetown Hotel are on in June and the d’Arcy Doyle Arts Festival runs 29 June – 10 July at Memorial Hall, Mudgeeraba.




The Kokoda Challenge and Bonogin Rural Fire Brigade Open Day keep things ticking along for Mudgeeraba in July.

And if all those community events aren’t enough, Mudgeeraba has some serious food offerings in the form of The Wine Barrel and Millers Hands, to name but two (of many).

I guess it’s time you hopped over the highway for a look-see, eh?
