What's On In The South Burnett
Festivals and fun for the whole family!
The South Burnett has more than a dozen major public festivals each year along with hundreds of smaller events.

Our festivals encompass wine and food, the arts, horse riding and horse racing, gardening, fishing... even pumpkins and peanuts ...and routinely draw visitors from all over south east Queensland.

The South Burnett is essentially a family region so most of our public activities are oriented around families too.

In a nutshell this means our major events are inexpensive to attend and nearly always have some entertainment and/or activities for children as well as adults.

You can find out more details about any of our major annual festivals on our Major Annual Events page. Many South Burnett's festivals now have their own web pages and some also have their own full-blown web sites. Our Major Annual Events listing is updated annually late each December.

You can also find out what's happening in our region on any day of the week by consulting our daily regional events calendar: What's On In The South Burnett.

Our daily calendar is updated continuously and is the single most comprehensive guide to what's happening in the South Burnett at any time.


Tip! Planning to visit us? Then use our daily events calendar to look ahead and see what's coming up? Our regional daily events calendar is updated on a daily basis but most big public events are listed at least two to three weeks in advance.

The Daily Calendar has been used in our region since 2000 to help both visitors and locals plan their entertainment. This means that it nearly always includes street addresses and contact phone numbers if you need to obtain more details about any particular event.
