Curious Tunes in Charming Places

Neighbourhood Sessions

Neighbourhood Sessions is the collaborative efforts of Nicole Cross and Sam Wright to enrich the North Queensland music scene with fresh, exciting and quirky events.

Neighbourhood Sessions have held picnic style music events in suburban backyards, on The Strand, on a boat and even held a treasure hunt!

Our latest event has vastly expanded in scale, Neck Of The Woods Music Festival which is to be an annual event out at Hervey Range, hosting some of Triple J’s spotlight acts, and a selection of North Queensland’s best.
