G’day, welcome to "Wot's on in Queensland" our Festivals, Events & Markets Guide available at Visitor Information Centres, Caravanning and 4WD Exhibitions.
We have endeavoured to captivate the beauty and vastness of Queensland from coastal to country towns and allow people to see our calendar of over 2500 Festivals, Events & Markets. It is these grassroots festivals from the heart of the communities that showcase the extraordinary talents, culture and artistry for one to have an amazing experience, amongst the most scenic landscapes imaginable.
Once you see an event of interest contact the local Visitor Information Centre for more details on how to plan your trip as they are a great help.
We are also supporting the Queensland Police Service Campaign "Stay on Track Outback" for safety tips and useful links to plan your trip.
