Welcome to the Canton of Burnfield

Travel back in time to the Middle Ages in Central Queensland. Don your helm and take up arms or put on your best medieval dress. Head to a tournament or bring your plate and goblet to the feast table. Leather work, embroidery, brewing, calligraphy, blacksmithing – anything is possible in the Society for Creative Anacronism.

The Canton of Burnfield – Living Document

Welcome my Lords and Ladies to the Canton Of Burnfield

The Canton of Burnfield is part of the Barony of River Haven, a group within the world of the Society for Creative Anachronism Inc (SCA).  Our base is in Gin Gin Queensland, but we have members from all over, from Gympie to Rockhampton

The SCA, is a family-friendly, non-profit, educational organization whose aims include re-creating the arts and crafts of the pre-17th century world.

We get together, learn all sorts of skills and crafts from cooking to fighting and everything in between, and we have a good time doing it. We are as much a recreation group as a re-creation group – that is we do what we do as much for fun as for authenticity. We have many members whose aim is to be as authentic as possible in as many ways as possible. We also have just as many members who are content to be as authentic as required to give a medieval feel to things while having as good a time as possible. The choice of your goals is up to you.

The only things required are that you at least make an attempt at period garb (“garb” means costume), try to avoid the look and feel of the modern world (the terms “mundane” or “mundanity” usually refer to the modern world), and that you be polite to others while you are doing it. If you want to be a totally authentic person, fine. If you want to be a barely authentic party animal, fine as well.

We hold weekly gatherings and Special Events.
