Frances

Locality (Unbounded)

Once known as the railway town, the rural community of Frances is now famous for the annual Frances Folk Gathering. Held every February, Australia’s only participation-based Folk Festival features music awards, workshops, song writing, dancing and poetry. More than 3000 people get involved each year.

Enjoy bushwalks and picnics at Little Desert National Park, just five minutes from the town centre. Gaze in wonderment at the majestic red gums and rich bird life at Mullinger Swamp Conservation Park. One 800-year old tree is so large that a family is said to have once lived in its hollowed out base!

Frances is located between Bordertown and Naracoorte.
