Other Recent Events.

With the likes of U.S. Drumming sensation Chris Berry, Melbourne’s Rapskallion, Brisbane favourites Kooii, Byron jazz six-piece Red Bantoo and Tibetan acoustic fusion trio Tibet2Timbuk2 all gracing The Deck with their presence recently, we’re able to provide entertainment that is as good as much larger venues.

Perhaps it’s the natural setting, or the warm friendly vibe, but both performers and audiences have commented on how different it feels here with the music drifting out over the smiling faces and into the night.

We regularly host workshops on everything from Permaculture design, drumming, creating healthy relationships, personal development, dance, making sourdough bread, innovative building design, and holistic health.

Keep an eye out on the this page, like our facebook page, or contact us and ask to be added to our mailing list to find out about everything that’s coming up!
