Moocooboola 2023

Moocooboola Festival

Held at Boronia Park Ovals, Moocooboola Festival is the premier community event in Hunters Hill.  It features rides, entertainment, displays, food stalls, a market bazaar, performances and a crowd-favourite dog show. Moocooboola Festival offers something for everyone with a range of both free and ticketed activities.

With a nostalgic history dating back to its first staging at Hunters Hill Town Hall in 1980, the festival’s name derives from the traditional Wallumedegal term meaning the “meeting of the waters” and refers to the area where the Parramatta and Lane Cove rivers come together.
