Tours: Groovin’ The Moo Is Back For 2023

Good moos! GTM is back with a full tour in 2023 Heading to six regions across the country
And welcoming a new location for Queensland

Here at Groovin the Moo (GTM), we’ve got some very good moos to share. It’s so good that we want to shout it from the very top of the top paddock. We are absolutely thrilled to be heading to six states and territories around Australia in April and May 2023.

Last year, we were so udderly thankful to be able to bring GTM to Maitland, Canberra and Bendigo. We have not been able to bring the Moo to SA, Queensland and WA since 2019, but that’s all about to change! In 2023, we cannot wait to welcome first-timers and reconnect with familiar faces to GTM across the country.

We’ll be hugging and high-fiving at Wayville SA on Friday 21 April, which also happens to be school holidays. The festival will bring memory making moments to Maitland NSW on Saturday 22 April, then will round out the first weekend in our nation’s capital Canberra ACT on Sunday 23 April.

The following weekend, it’s down to beaut Bendigo VIC on Saturday 29 April, then to a new Queensland location on the Sunshine Coast on Sunday 30 April (long weekend bonus!). Then, we finally return to the west coast for some Bunbury fun on Saturday 6 May.

We have loved calling Townsville our Queensland home over the years, but post pandemic touring life is harder. The logistical challenges and increased financial pressures are too great and unfortunately we are not able to return to the top end in 2023.

GTM will continue to hold the festival in Queensland in 2023, this time at Sunshine Coast’s Kawana Sports Western Precinct.

GTM’s Steve Halpin said:

“We are so happy to be able to do a full tour across the country in 2023. We have missed you terribly and can’t wait to bring back the good times around the country. Whilst we are very sad not be returning to Townsville, we look forward to bringing GTM to the Sunshine Coast.”

Known for its stunning beaches and breathtaking hinterland, here are a few fun facts about our new region. Until 1966, the Sunshine Coast was named Near North Coast and was changed after 8 long years of local petitioning for a much more fitting name. Known for its healthy living lifestyle, the Sunny Coast has the most yoga, meditation, juice cleanse bars and organic stores than any other region per capita. Sounds like the perfect place for some post-GTM R&R!


Are you keen to join the team and become an integral part of GTM? We’re looking for people to join us across a range of roles to get some great festival experience and be a part of the GTM team.
