12 – 14th April
From modest beginnings, today’s event brings together people from all walks of life – people from Queensland, Australia and overseas. Julia Creek, based in McKinlay Shire, is proud to host what is fast becoming Queensland’s “Must go-to” event. Each year the Committee aims to reproduce the highlights of the previous years and add new attractions to continually showcase the town, its people and the true Aussie outback.
The Julia Creek Dirt and Dust Festival now offers visitors three jam-packed days of fun and entertainment. Experience real outback hospitality when the tiny North West Queensland outback town of Julia Creek swells from 300 people to 3,000 in one weekend! See the gutsy outback triathlon teams in action, back a winner at the Artesian Express Outback Horse Races, kick on til late with nightly outdoor concerts, or check out the spectacular Dirt n Dust Bullride, sanctioned by PBR.
Entry Costs; Vary for differing events; from FREE to $200. See website for details.
Venue: Dirt n Dust Central, Burke Street, Julia Creek.
