Save the date for these great September events in Queensland
Spring has sprung in Queensland and what better way to celebrate the change of season by smelling your way through Australia’s longest running floral event, The Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers. It’s also peak produce season for Australia’s food bowl with the Southern Great Barrier Reef rolling out the picnic rug to welcome travellers to feast on fresh local produce at the Bundy Flavours Festival. Take in stunning artworks by the sea at the Swell Sculpture Festival along Currumbin Beach. Don’t forget to pack an extra roll for Australia’s cheekiest race – the Dunny Derby at the Outback Festival in Winton.
Properties are opening in time along the Great Barrier Reef to give southerners the perfect excuse to escape the winter chills for a tropical escape. Commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC spirit by exploring the southern hemisphere’s largest collection of army artillery, or jump aboard the new jet ski tour and cruise around the world’s largest sand island. Shake off the winter blues with these new Queensland tropical winter treats.
