Opera in the Arboretum

Opera in the Arboretum is a Rotary Club of Woy Woy annual charity fundraiser. This open-air, all-weather, picnic style event brings together a star-studded line-up of the best international artists to perform Opera’s much loved arias, duets and ensembles in the coastal rainforest setting of the Crommelin Native Arboretum in Pearl Beach, NSW. This unique venue is an easy 90 minute drive from Sydney, 60 minutes from Newcastle.


Opera patrons and sponsors save the day!

Sadly, due to COVID-19 restrictions on mass gatherings we had to cancel Opera in the Arboretum 2020. Being a charity event, the cancellation could have meant a huge loss for the recipients and the club has it not been for the generosity of patrons and sponsors who saved the day. They answered our call to donate and it is thanks to their support that the Club has been able to provide some funds to each of the Opera in the Arboretum 2020 recipients and to the artists

We don't know what the future holds, but hope it will once again be possible to stage this much-loved charity event and to bring you our 15th Opera in the Arboretum in 2021.
