O’Heart Festival takes place in the beautiful village of Tyalgum – The Heart of the Caldera. Set against a dramatic backdrop formed by the towering western wall of the Wollumbin Mt. Warning Caldera, the historic village of Tyalgum oozes country charm. What was once a remote timber town  is now one of the Valley’s most popular day-trip destinations.

Over the past ten years, Tyalgum has blossomed into a vibrant village thanks to the quaint old buildings that have been lovingly restored and transformed into  country cafes, art galleries, gift stores, a bookshop, silversmith studio, an eco store, country furniture and decorative art supplies shops.
