This event is clothing optional for those who wish to experience the natural freedom of their bodies in a safe and supportive space, many people remain clothed as the focus of the weekend is not on nudity but on connecting, sharing, new experiences and personal growth. The venue is a private property close to Adelaide on the Murray River, between Swan Reach and Walker Flat. Pilwarren is set in beautiful bushland and has room for hundreds of people, accommodated in hired cabins or in their own vans or tents. There is an excellent kitchen where we will team up to cook delicious vegetarian meals for everyone, and ablution blocks with hot showers and flushing toilets (yes, it's ConFest with a modern touch!) Everyone at SA Confest is responsible for helping make others feel safe, welcome and connected. THE ABUSE OF DRUGS AND ALCOHOL IS NOT WELCOME. CAMERAS AND MOBILE PHONES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE USED AT PILWARREN. (It is a short walk to the road where mobiles can be used.) There is a separate camping area, on the river, a 6 minute drive away for those who wish to bring pets. This area has no facilities (no toilets) and a fee of $5 per day is paid to Pilwarren for the use of their facilities in addition to the SA Confest entry fee. Look out for the Pilwarren signs on Murraylands Road onwards. It is a good idea to print these directions & take them with you when travelling to Pilwarren. We suggest first time visitors try to arrive before dark, it is much easier to find in daylight. Watch out for kangaroos & wombats, particularly if you travel at dawn, dusk or at night.
