Food and Wine Festivals

All things food and wine is something Southern Queensland Country know and do extremely well. So naturally, they celebrate this through a variety of food and wine events throughout the year. As a taste, why not get well acquainted with the Granite Belt region’s produce and booming wine industry at the Apple & Grape Harvest Festival! Or for a true homegrown Aussie experience, the Australian Camp Oven Festival is a must. From damper throwing to billy boiling, this is a weekend of great family fun. 

But this is just the beginning, find more delicious events below.

Bring your knitting needles or crochet hooks and settle in to enjoy a program of jazz events in the local cafes and parks with Warwick’s very own Jumpers and Jazz – and so much more!
