Like a phoenix from the ashes, the Winter Solstice Bonfire will rise again!!

Collingwood Children’s Farm’s famous annual bonfire was cancelled due to Covid-19 in 2020, and after five valiant attempts in 2021, we reluctantly admitted defeat and brought the Phoenix to rest in its nest.

But it’s back in 2022! Saturday 25th June is the date the Phoenix and the Bonfire will rise to thrill and delight thousands of families. There is something hypnotic about watching flames leaping into the night sky from a massive bonfire. When live music, fire lanterns, face-painting and storytelling are added to the mix, it’s truly an evening to remember.

Delicious street food is available on the night from Wrap Rollit, Inkredible Calamari, Twista Bros, Beatbox Kitchen, and friends of the Farm – the Country Women’s Association.

Drinks are provided by Mountain Goat, Rewine and Noisy Ritual Winery.

This event sells out fast and tickets are available online only via our website and Eventbrite.

  • Families $50 / concession $25 (2 adults & 2 children)

We strongly advise taking public transport to the bonfire as parking is extremely limited.
