HUNDREDS of Whitsunday residents travelled to the 14th annual Wintermoon festival at Cameron's Pocket, south of Proserpine over the long weekend.

About 1300 people camped on the weekend and more than 300 people went through the gates on each of the three days.

Performers travelled from all over Australia with bands including the Bushwackers, the Ploughboys, the Twine and the Perch Creek Family Jug band.

Other entertainers included Dave Flower, Steady Eddy and Campbell the Swaggie.

What started as a small gathering by the local folk club more than 14 years ago has evolved into a major family event on the annual folk music calendar.
