Not long to go now! Here are a few important bits and pieces for anyone attending this year’s Gathering.

Registrations are full. If you are registered as attending and your plans have changed, please contact us and let us know. We have a long waiting list of people hoping to register.

If you are not registered but are planning on attending the mountain on the weekend of the Gathering, please note that you will not be covered by our insurance and as such will be camping at your own risk. The MFPG accepts no liability for unregistered campers.

All attendees of the 2015 Gathering should familiarise themselves with the information on our Camping at the Mount, FAQ and Ritual Etiquette pages as they prepare for the 2015 MFPG weekend. A full schedule of events can be found here.

On arrival on the Mountain, come and say hello at the Organisers’ camp and sign our visitors’ book! Please do not park/camp in the centre crater (fenced off area). Not sure where to park? Ask one of our friendly Organisers!

Charge up your solar lights! Don’t forget to bring a string (or strings!) of solar lights to help us light up the crater.

As part of the Bardic Circle on the Friday night, we are requesting that all attendees help us out by bringing a donation of a small amount of firewood to the communal fire. Remember that no firewood can be collected at the Mount – you will need to bring your own. Please see our Camping at the Mount section for more information what to bring and what to leave at home. 🙂

We are in the process of ordering our brand spanking new tees! These will be black, with a beautiful green man design by Erika T on the front and the name of the Gathering on the back. Two cuts are available: unisex loose fit ($30) and Ladies’ slim fit ($35).

To pre-order your tshirt and reserve one in your size, contact us with the size/style you require. Payments can be made to:

Mount Franklin Pagan Gathering Association Inc
BSB: 633-000

Please use your name as a reference when sending your payment.

You can pick up your tshirt at the Gathering, or we will post yours to you after the event for $6.20. These shirts will also be available for sale at the Gathering.
