WOW Longreach

Festivals and Celebrations

2 Jul 2021 to 3 Jul 2021 Once Only Event

Welcome to WOW Western Queensland (Longreach) to be held on the traditional land of the Iningai and Bidjara peoples. This is planned in partnership with the women of Longreach, Red Ridge Interior Queensland and Longreach Regional Council.

Red Ridge will bring a WOW factor to celebrations on the Friday night at Longreach Civic Centre, presenting a Red Ridge the Label catwalk experience with the Diamantina and Georgina collections featuring artwork from Two Sisters Talking (Anpanuawa) Joyce Crombie, and (Aulpunda) Jean Barr Crombie.

Saturday will feature a full day of WOW events including a day long market place of women led businesses, conversations and interviews with leading Queensland women including Australia’s Former Governor General the Hon Quentin Bryce and Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Jeanette Young, workshops, and a performance from Central Western Music Makers.

Saturday night will finish with a bang, with a show that will leave you laughing for days. The Country Witches Association is what happens when Aussie comedian Mandy Nolan and Irish singer songwriter Áine Tyrrell mix genres and politics to create a diabolically funny, inclusive, politically robust, deeply introspective and wildly outrageous call to arms.

WOW (Women of the World) Australia 2021 is proudly supported by our principal partner Queensland Government, and our strategic partners, Griffith University, QSuper and the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation.
