About the Muster

Muster Beginnings

When Jim Snow opened the first Bungendore Country Muster in 1986 he predicted a great future for the festival and he got it right. The Bungendore Country Muster has continued and in 2020 will be celebrating its 35th Anniversary.

See our upcoming Event Program.

The Muster is unique in that it is the only “all Australian” country music festival in Australia and has a core policy of existing for the betterment and benefit of the Bungendore community and Australian country music.

The festival is held at the local Bungendore show ground just outside of the historic town of Bungendore.

The village of Bungendore is located in country NSW, 30 minutes’ drive from Canberra and 3 hours south-west of Sydney, and while enjoying camping in the beautiful country surrounds, festival goers can also enjoy everything Bungendore and the region has to offer including award winning wineries & restaurants, nature parks, bushwalking and a visit to our nation’s capital.
