Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF)
On advice of authorities and due to safety concerns for patrons and staff, event organisers have regretfully decided to cancel LEAF 2016. Due to the amount of rain we have received in the last 48 hours, and even if tomorrow is sunny day, the grounds and preparation have been severely affected by today’s weather. We urge you all to follow the emergency warnings being issued and to stay indoors and stay safe! LEAF will return again in 2017.
LEAF is a free community festival welcoming everyone from all ages to attend and be actively involved in a fun and inspiring program. This interactive and educational event is designed to stimulate awareness about the environmental issues we face as a community, and through education, empower festival attendees to make a positive change.

A free health and wellness centre including meditation, Konga classes and yoga sessions will also operate. Festival goers will be able to attend a range of exciting and interactive demonstrations including cheese making, Kimchi demos and how to make your own sugar free jams. The program is rounded out by free live music, up-cycling workshops, native plant sales and the chance to indulge in some of the best healthy and organic food stalls and coffee in a funky retro style outdoor cafe area.
In keeping with this year’s theme “local action, global impact” festival goers will be encouraged to turn over a new leaf and how every local action we take will have a lasting global impact! In keeping with this theme no disposable plastic bottled water will be sold at the event, so please remember your reusable water bottle and fill up at our free water hydration station! A sustainable future starts with you, so pack up the family, ditch the car, grab your reusable water bottle and head to the Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF).
