Tara Festival of Culture & Camel Races - Postponed until further notice

Come and join us for three days of culture and camels. Tick this outback experience off your bucket list with the convenience of a short country drive, only 1.5 hours from Toowoomba and just over three hours from Queensland’s capital, Brisbane.

Take a break from the excitement of the camel racing to enjoy an extravaganza of multi-cultural stage shows, live entertainment and a jam-packed program with flavoursome food.

Do you have a caravan, motorhome or tent? With over 100 acres of bush camping available right next door to the Festival, start planning your trip now.

Organisers promise the camels and all the festival fun will return to Tara in a future year, but for now, will hold off planning their next festival until the path ahead is clearer.
