The Wetlands Festival is home to a great range of stalls offering a wide variety of crafty, yummy, interesting items. All items are made or donated by members of the College community and we thank them very much for their generous support of this fundraising opportunity.
Recycling and upcycling is the key tenet of our legendary Upmarket Craft Stall, which prides itself on offering an incredible array of stylish and contemporary craft items to Festival Patrons.

Jams and Preserves
We have hundreds of Jams, Sauces and Jellies ready to be bought and consumed. Many new flavours such as Apple & Passionfruit Jam and a Tropical Jam have been made. There is also homemade BBQ sauce available and limited number Tomato Pasta Sauce. For the first time, we have also obtained from an extended CHAC Family, Withcott Honey. All items have been made with fresh ingredients sourced locally to help our local community.

The confectionary and sweet stall at CHAC is renowned for offering a mouth-watering array of home-made goodies like fudge, rocky road, coconut ice, honeycomb, truffles, chocolate freckles, toffee, Turkish delight and nougat. Also making an appearance will be those perennial favourites - lolly necklaces! It’s all delicious and the only question is – will it last until you get home?

Our passionfruit vine, purchased at the last Wetlands Festival in 2016 is above. They say they take 3 years to bear, but those Wetlands passionfruit are ripening on the vine now! If you have a green thumb, why not grow some plants for the stall at Wetlands?
Want to Help? Contact the Plants Convenor Jodi by email or phone her on 0438 634 588.
CHAC Environment Display
The CHAC Environmental Club will be staging an interactive display as well as conducting FREE guided tours of our beautiful Wetlands, along the boardwalk. The Wetlands boardwalk is part of the wetland rehabilitation project in the environmentally sensitive and gazetted melaleuca wetlands which are part of the extensive college grounds and from which our Festival takes its name.
Did you know that Australians buy an average of 27 kilograms of new textiles each year and then discard about 23 kilograms into landfill? And that two-thirds of those discards are manmade synthetic/plastic fibres that may never breakdown? Vintage is groovy and recycle is cool, not to mention environmentally sound! At Wetlands Fashion Finds adults and kids alike will find some fantastic outfits at equally fantastic prices.
