Are You Ready For The Wellness Event Of the Year?


With an incredible line up of speakers, musicians, yogi and thought leaders (instead of medi gurus) this year’s annual Food Matters Live is set to satisfy all your health cravings in one mind-blowing 4-day event in partnership with Wanderlust.

If you’re looking for extra motivation, understanding or direction on your health, then this is where you need to be on November 9-12, 2017.

Last year’s ground-breaking Food Matters Live tour of four one-day events across Australia took us to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and the absolutely ELECTRIC finale in Brisbane attended by over 700 people. Exploring detoxification and healing through the mind-body connection, we brought you 5 outstanding expert speakers and a live performance from the hugely talented Wes Carr. The vibe from hundreds of people positively radiating in good health and intention made it an unforgettable experience; a huge big health and vitality party that we wished would never end!

 We are so pumped to do it all again this year… but with a twist!

For 2017 we’re expanding the speakers and hosting a 4-day-intensive Live event on Queensland's Sunshine Coast in partnership with Wanderlust. It is going to be EPIC!

Picture this… 4 days together with the Food Matters team with a HUGE lineup of the best health, wellness, fitness, yoga, essential oils and meditation experts joined by internationally-renowned musicians and world-class chefs. All together in a health and wellness oasis surrounded by the natural wonders of the Sunshine Coast, you can taste, learn, listen, explore and practice, and truly dive into the complete experience of life.

There is so much in store for Wanderlust festival-goers that we’re just itching for it all to begin… kombucha bars, group yoga, the health food marketplace, pumping tunes from the likes of Arrested Development who are coming over from the East Coast of USA to rock the party.  There’s also Toni Childs, Mashd N Kutcher, Sol Rising, Dave Stringer…and the list goes on.
