The Mount Helena Residents and Ratepayers Association are delighted to announce the return of last years’ much-loved Hills Billy Cart Festival on Sunday the 27th of October 2019. This event is set to be bigger and better than last year, under the auspices of the Mount Helena Classic and supported by the Whim Festival.


Established in 2009, this event, created by volunteers and driven by community spirit will be the same much-loved family day out as years gone by, however we are delighted to now be part of the bigger Mount Helena Classic.

The Whim connects locals and visitors to the region to explore and experience a showcase of local talent – music, businesses and organisations – we welcome you to come and soak in some good old fashioned fun.
