Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire,
I do wander everywhere.”
– William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream (approx 1590)

Sharon’s FAERIE COTTAGE sits among the tree ferns and rainforest plants of Springbrook Mountain; a world heritage national park that’s full of magical elemental energy.
Join her over two days as you explore sacred places on the mountain, like the majestic waterfalls and ancient, moss covered trees, to the secret glow worm colony and the mountain fed springs.
Sharon McLeod is a member of the world’s largest clan; the McLeod’s. The McLeod’s are famous for their ancient connection to the Faerie Realm, with legend stating that their line is personally protected by the King of the Faeries and his Faerie Knights – a bond forged hundreds of years ago on the Isle of Skye when one of their chieftains married a Faerie Princess who bore him a son.
Today, Sharon still honours the age-old tradition of her people, and continues to honour the Faeries every day – either by making offerings to them, painting them or chatting to them as she goes about her daily chores.
- Connect with the sacred Faery Energy that the mountain is famous for
- Go in search of Faeries (remember that Springbrook Mountain is one of the most documented places in Australia for Yowie sightings, and that’s because the mountain is so ancient and relatively untouched … leaving the portholes between the worlds wide open) using Hag Stones and other magickal tools
- Learn how to honour the Faeries and how to call upon them in everyday life
- Partake in FAERIE PHOTOGRAPHY
- Enjoy a bonfire on the Saturday night in honour of the Faeries
- Craft your own magickal ‘fortune telling’ card deck using playing cards, just as Sharon’s grandmothers did when Sharon was just a little girl
- … and many more surprises. We promise the weekend will be packed full of Faery fun and elemental magick!
