Experience

Yoga

To get you loose & limber for Dance Floor Fun and trying those new moves you have been practicing in the kitchen Bohemian Beatfreaks will have a variety of Yoga classes each day covering a range of styles and skill levels from Morning Sunshine Yoga to Acro Yoga for partners.

Today’s modern life has us all stiff and stale, glued to the desk or smart phone. The first step of becoming present is to become one with your body, to truly feel the vessel & vehicle for your soul.

Practicing yoga is a tool that sharpens the mind so that you can see reality clearly. It is not just a stretching routine that helps you get limber. In essence the yoga practice seeks to answer the question of what defines the present moment and help root your consciousness directly in it

Workshops

Aside from the host of daily Yoga sessions there will also be a variety pack of weird & wonderful workshops, discussions & classes to get you pushing your boundaries and expressing your creative side.   Anything from Aliens, Tie Dying, Basket Weaving, Pole Dancing, Speed Dating to Massage & Meditation and everything in between. All Workshops are included with your ticket just come with an Open Mind & an Open Heart.

Magic Spaces

Magic Spaces create Magic Moments. Magic spaces invoke the playful inner child in all of us and send the imagination flying so you can re-imagine your self and become the True Unicorn you really are.

At Bohemian Beatfreaks we get excited every year to dream up and create unique spaces for you to explore. From the Dancfloor to the Tea House and everything in between, care, love & a little bit of spice goes into creating each space with your experience in mind.

Sun & Stars

Star Gazing at night and Sun-touched Skin during the day, Laying in the grass watching the fluffy clouds float by, The Wind in your hair as you move to the tribal rhythms on the dance floor, A Cheeky grin from the local Kookaburra; these are just some of the moments of bliss out at Bohemian Beatfreaks.

Too many of us are confined to the concrete jungle, the social media feed and a constant barrage of corporate advertising. This leaves us feeling deflated & frantic; without Love, Solid Purpose or Meaningful Direction. A weekend Camping out in Raw Nature, barefoot Under the Sun & Stars will leave you feeling refreshed & re-inspired, ready to face reality with a new perspective. Disconnect the ‘smart phone’ and reconnect with the People Around You. Let the music run through your body as you sink deeply into the present moment and feel alive again .

Reconnect with your true spirit and fall in love with the wonder of the natural world and the cosmos. Approach each moment with Love and watch the universe reciprocate.

From Star Dust we came & too Star Dust we shall return.

Theme Camps

Aside from all our massive Custom Themed Stages and Installation Art we also invite different Theme Camps & Party Crews to contribute to add their Unique Vibe & Flavour and create an intimate space to be enjoyed by all.  The Creative Boundaries are pushed & every year things get more fun & more ridiculous!!

Some regular favourites you might find hidden in the forest or along the lake shore: 8 Mile Yacht Club with their Boat Rocking Beats, Wonky Queenslander with their flavour of funk, Camp Paprika serving up some spicy tech house and lounge vibes or Crop Psycles with Giant Jenga & Ping Pong.
Don’t be scared, pop your head in and have a dance, you are bound to meet some new friends and enjoy some magic moments with these legends.

If you & your crew think it has what it takes to run a Theme Camp at Bohemian Beatfreaks get in touch with us!

Market Village

Complete with Barber, Baker & Candle Stick Maker… Well at least the Barber part is true for our Vibrant Bohemian Market Village.

The Bohemian Lounge forms the central hub of the Market Village with yoga & workshops during the day and an eclectic array of live bands at night.

We have hand picked some of our favourite market stalls selling a wide range of Delicious Healthy food and drinks, which cater to all dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan, gluten free & a range of tasty meats. All to nourish your body and keep you energised for Dance Floor Fun. We have heard some people come to Bohemian Beatfreaks just for the Food…

Aside from all the tasty ‘Nomnoms’ the market village will also feature a selection of Craft, Clothing, Jewlery & Healing Stalls with unique hand made and custom treasures.
