Festivals and Celebrations

This event will showcase some of Australia’s balladeers and Bush Poets.

South-east Queensland’s premier balladeers’ event is held every year to coincide with Heritage Weekend. It is held over seven days, and always includes the fourth Saturday of April. With plenty of bush camping available, Spirit of the Bush has attracted upwards of 600 caravans, not including our helpers and invited performers.

Bookings are essential, and those wishing to attend must purchase tickets online or at the main gate. The event will be organised in keeping with a COVID-Safe event plan.

Social distancing will be required during the event. Patrons will be required to sign in using the Check in Qld app.
