Tara Festival of Culture and Camel Festival
August 4-6, 2017
They only come around once every two years, so if watching camel races in the heart of the Australian bush is on your bucket list, don’t miss your chance to see the 2017 Tara Festival of Culture and Camel Races.
The Festival, located in Tara, Queensland, is just 3.5 hours west of Brisbane and accessible inland via the Newell Highway through Moree and Goondiwindi.
Tara, a small country town of less than 1,000 residents literally explodes with excitement during the three day festival of multi-cultural celebrations with a genuine camel race meet.
The iconic feature of the festival is the Camel Racing on the Saturday and Sunday, but it’s the eclectic mix of street performers and different cultures on display through a variety of cuisine, displays, workshops and non-stop entertainment that will amaze.
The Festival includes live music, buskers, roving entertainment and on Friday night Jess Berwick will take to the stage and Saturday night Judah Kelly and James Johnston Band will be the headline acts.
Classic country entertainment is included throughout the program, including Terry Arnold, Bill Ramsey and Wayne Kite.
Several countries of the world are represented in cuisine, arts and culture, providing an opportunity for education and interaction for everybody, with free workshops also on offer.
Kings Park Accommodation is offering travellers a great package to the Festival that includes accommodation, breakfast and return coach transfers to Tara. Email or call us today to book.
