Events in the
Western Downs

The Western Downs is renowned for our iconic major events, Dalby’s Delicious and DeLIGHTful, Miles Back to the Bush Festival, Chinchilla Melon Festival, Opera at Jimbour, Tara Festival of Culture and Camel Races, Big Skies, and Jandowae Timbertown Festival truly capture the essence of the Western Downs Region.

A quintessential illustration of outback living, the country rodeo and campdraft features high on our events calendar with an event of this nature held almost every month of the year. Don’t miss our annual Stock Horse Sale and Campdraft in Dalby, the largest of its kind in Australia.

You will find our sense of community strongly represented at any one of our Annual Show Days where our country schools proudly display their achievements and our local produce and livestock are pitted against each other. For a relaxed and inviting social scene, be sure to experience one of our Western Downs Race Days where fashion and colour combine with country hospitality, sometimes amongst the dust of thundering hooves on an outback track.

Our region has become a hub of activity in recent years so we highly recommend you plan and book ahead.
