Join music lovers from around Australia and the world who make the annual pilgrimage to the Outback to indulge in big voices and big skies blended in beautiful harmony.

This is the Festival of Outback Opera.

Unlike any other music event you have experienced. Your destination delivers a series of outdoor concerts in iconic locations set on a backdrop of insta-worthy sunsets and scenery on a grand scale. Frock up for the Gala or join us in the pub for a casual singalong. Gather with us under the night skies for Dark Sky Serenade or enjoy an afternoon of beautiful singing and fine dining at the Long Lunch.

With a flexible itinerary, the program allows you to immerse yourself for a long weekend or completely give in to a full week of activities. This is song and scenery on a grand scale. And while the space is vast, the feeling is intimate, leaving you with a smile on your face and a swag of new friendships.

It’s an experience the city cannot match. Start making your plans today. As with previous years, the festival will sell out quickly.

The Festival of Outback Opera is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, the Outback Queensland Tourism Association, The University of Queensland, QMF and Haymans Electrical.
