Our Beer Garden is open for food and drinks from 12noon.

The Triffid has just turned two and is already one of Australia’s most loved live music venues for punters and artists alike.

For our first year the Triffid garden was home for the much-loved Triffid Roots we worked alongside Sarah Howells to ensure that our Sunday session was second to none.

The summer of 2016/2017 will see The Triffid re-invent our Sunday sessions.

Based on a passion for spirited acoustic music we have partnered with the Americana Association of Australia for present AMERICANA SESSIONS FREE EVERY SUNDAY IN THE TRIFFID GARDEN.

Every Sunday lovers of Folk, Country, Rhythm & Blues, Blues and Rock and Roll will be presented with some of the most respected artists around. This will all be happening in relaxed surrounds of the Triffid garden with a brand new menu for the foodies and plenty of other musical and beverage surprises.

HARRY HOOKEY

Burra. Gympie. Parachilna. Wangaratta. You name a town in Australia, chances are Harry Hookey has played it, probably in the last month. This is a man who lives and breathes the troubadour tradition.

“That’s sort of the aim of the game,” he smiles. “Most weeks I’ll have four or five gigs and just keep it happening. I’ve slept in my car a lot over the last couple of years. That’s my main address. And Australia’s a great country for it too: you meet a lot of cool people.”

That’s been the lot of this Gippsland-born boy who gave up the country for the city, and life as a would-be lawyer for life as a roaming musician.
