Australia has a great calendar of activities that offer a celebration of arts, cultures, heritage, festivals, sport and other events. From the spectacular to the iconic, some may be one off events, whilst others have established themselves on the calendar returning year after year.
We will be listing some of these festivals and events here, but if you are planning a trip, you can always contact the visitor information centres along your travel route to your destination, as you never know, you may decide on including a stopover to take in an event that is happening.
Of course there are some events that happen at the same time throughout Australia, such as Christmas and New Years Eve celebrations, ANZAC Day, Australia Day, local markets, agricultural shows etc. Planning is the key to make the most of the festivals and events. If planning your travel around events, contact the holder of the event or the local visitor centre where the event is happening to confirm the event timetable.
Make sure you come back to see some of the events we have experienced and loved.
