Something happens as we pass from infant through childhood to adulthood. A nameless process whereby we lose our wonder about life, our confidence to express ourselves and do exactly what we enjoy. Then along comes Wanderlust?Thredbo. Finally, a festival that reflects exactly where humans are, right now. Sure, there are rock concerts, workshops and expression sessions out there for all to access, but a festival that celebrates humans for being themselves and it?s coming right to Thredbo? Wow, that?s worth something!

Meditation and chanting
Effective and powerful for thousands of years of humanity. If you?re curious about the powers and methods of meditation, including chanting, Wanderlust Thredbo includes a brilliant lineup of great role models in their individual life journeys to guide you. Come and explore the many and varied ways to meditate and find a method that suits you best.
Music soothes the soul and the Wanderlust line up should have something to suit everyone. If you?re open to different styles of music Wild Marmalade are a high energy didgeridoo dance band, Xaviar Rudd is soulful and tuneful, R.I.A will play DJ tunes popular in Europe, Scandinavia and America and The Melbourne-based duo the Twoks will showcase the electric violin. These are just a few of the eleven artists or bands coming to Thredbo for Wanderlust.
Coping With Modern Life
Yoga workshops, dance, outdoor adventures. Each experience aims to enrich lives. Every small decision made throughout your day makes up your lifestyle after all, so why not fill it with great decisions, great people and positive activities. Benefit from talks by speakers who aim to help you deal with stress in your daily life.

Be inspired and come away from the festival better equipped and ready to face the new year. Modern life is difficult enough with our modern distractions. Listen to some inspiring speakers who look to what worked best in the past to equip us for moving forward.
Join some wine sampling events, very casually in your yoga gear as part of the greater festival festivities while the sun sets and music plays on to help set a very unique mountain scene. All wines are a mix of local and imported wines and are accompanied by seasonal hors-d'oeuvres.
Challenge yourself to get on a horse and join a group in an easy horse trail ride and experience the beauty of the mountains. Centre yourself firmly in nature and enjoy the smells and sights of the surrounds. The ride environment is supportive and begins with an introductory horse riding lesson. Horse riding 101 will help you face the right way on the horse.
