It's Live! in Queensland

Queensland Events

The best way to experience the energy and spirit of Queensland is at our world-class events, where communities and fans come together to celebrate in spectacular destinations.  

And no matter what you’re into, you’ll find an event that’ll spark your interest.

Catch a world-class theatre performance or dine by the beach at one of our gourmet food festival. 

Cheer on your favourite sports team, or pitch your tent at Australia’s most remote music festival in the middle of Outback Queensland. 
 

Test your limits in a tropical triathlon where two World Heritage Wonders touch.  

Connect with Indigenous culture in Queensland’s top end.  

One thing’s for sure – these experiences will stay with you long after curtain call.
