FAQ

Will there be Drop off/ Pick Up & Parking?

We’re encouraging all festival attendees, if driving to drop-off or park at the Cavanbah Centre which will have a dedicated Festival of the Stone carpark. There is a short walk on a pedestrian pathway on Ewingsdale Road that leads directly to our Festival entrance. Only Ubers, buses and taxi’s can drop off directly in front of the brewery on Centennial Circuit.

Will there be a shuttle bus?

We will have a free shuttle bus looping on the hour for the duration of the event from Byron Bay Bus Interchange, Cavanbah Centre Carpark and the festival at Stone & Wood Brewery at Centennial Circuit. There will be more bus shuttles available from 9pm going directly back into Byron via The Northern, then onto the Byron Bus Interchange.

Is Festival of The Stone Family Friendly?  

Sure is. Little ones very welcome, we have a dedicated kids area – Malt Disney available with kid’s activities from 3-7pm and entertainment to keep them happy!

Don't forget to grab your kids tickets here, they are free for under 12s and $30 for 12-17 year olds.

Will there be road closures around the site? 

Yep. In order to ensure the entrance is kept as clear as possible, only buses, taxis and Ubers allowed down Centennial Circuit while the festival takes place. 

What if it rains?  

The show will go on! Our main stage is under a marquee and we have our big brewery to cover off the main bar area and the DJ stage. Plenty of dry patches to be had.  

Can I buy takeaway beers? 

Negative. We’ll happily refill your glass, but to take home some of the good stuff, you’ll have to visit one of the awesome local bottleshops or come back and see us another time. 

Will there be food?

Of course! We’ve gathered some of the best local food vendors to offer on site meals and snacks.

Can I bring pets?

While we love our furry friends here at Stone & Wood, a loud festival with lots of people is not the safest or calmest place for them to be. Leave your little loved ones at home for this one. 

How do the reusable cups work?

We will be implementing our cup exchange as in previous years, to wage the war on single use plastic. This means you purchase a cup for $2 on your initial drink purchase and receive a $1 refund once returning your cup on the way out.

Alternatively, your $1 refund can go straight to Fletcher Street Cottage

What if I want to make an additional donation to Fletcher Street Cottage?

First off, you're a legend! There will be other ways to donate to Fletcher Street Cottage on site.

BREWING RICH HISTORY

Festival of the Stone is where we celebrate the release of this year’s Stone Beer and the first tapping of the keg. Stone Beer for 2024 is a wood-fired porter ideal for chilly winter nights. A nod to medieval brewing, it’s a tradition held dear for the last 17 years since Stone & Wood’s humble beginnings.

Fundraising for Fletcher Street Cottage

Each year, Festival of the Stone gives us the chance to give back to the local community. And it’s no different this year. Byron has one of the highest homelessness rates in the country and Fletcher St Cottage do all they can to support our rough sleepers. They provide essential services, wraparound support and hope, empowering Northern Rivers locals experiencing homelessness.
