Prepare for a vibrant celebration of the land in Lockhart. Spirit of the Land incorporates artistic sculptures, fine arts and photography, lively markets, boutique stalls, fabulous foods, vivid open gardens, amazing entertainment, stylish vintage vehicles and more. The Festival is a fantastic experience for friends and family to enjoy.

Spirit of the Land began in 2006 during the worst drought in Lockhart’s recorded history, as a celebration to the resilience of those who live and work on the land. It was inspired by those who saw the inner strength, courage and determination of a community battling an invisible foe.
