What’s on in Pambula Village this April
We love Pambula for its vintage streetscape and authentic shopping, the thriving Panboola wetlands, the iconic Pambula Rivermouth and the stunning beaches.
What we love to do
- Take a stroll through Panboola Wetlands to Longstocking Brewery and explore Oaklands.
- Visit Pambula River Mouth and Pambula Beach, take a walk, go for a swim and just breathe that pure air. Dont forget to bring the dog to Lions Beach too.
- Visit Pambula Lake oyster farmers for some of the world’s best Sydney Rock Oysters.
- Pambula is well known as a creative hub and the quirky range of shops in the village reflect this. Eco fashion, hand shaped surfboards, local homewares, the best of local produce, artwork, pottery, furniture and more.

Saturday April 13th 2019 – “Ephemeral” Festival
Located on the fringe of Pambula Village, Panboola is a conservation, restoration, educational and passive recreational and tourism project, embracing the history and diversity of the wetlands within the flood plain. They provide a unique place to experience culture and diversity in nature. A wander or cycle through Panboola will expose you to fresh water billabongs, saltmarsh and mangroves and a wide variety of birdlife.
Art and creativity will be at the heart of these wetlands on Saturday 13 April 2019. The Pambula Wetlands and Heritage Project, in collaboration with the Lonely Arts Club Pambula, have organised Ephemeral – a one day festival – to celebrate the landscape of Panboola and the creativity it inspires.
The community is invited to come between 9am-2pm and wander the grounds of the wetlands and enjoy in-situ temporary sculptures, installations of art, craft demonstrations, acoustic music and stalls. Book into workshops and try woodcarving, textile art and screenprinting.
A series of workshops on the day will complement the festival. These include an Art Masterclass with Shona Wilson (9.30am-3.30pm). a Youth Writers Workshop with Gabbie Stroud (9.30am-2.00pm), a wood carving workship with Spoonsmith where you can make a spoon or carve a bird and so much more. Visit the Panboola website for a full list of all the workshops and to book your place.
