Prepare yourself for mud, laughs and plenty of fun in the bog snorkling event…

The Julia Creek Dirt & Dust Festival will celebrate 21 years in 2015

If it’s an outback adventure you are seeking, then the Julia Creek Dirt & Dust Festival is a must do on your event calendar!

From modest beginnings, today’s event brings together people from all walks of life – people from Queensland, Australia and overseas. Julia Creek, based in McKinlay Shire, is proud to host what is fast becoming Queensland’s “Must go-to” event. Each year the Committee aims to reproduce the highlights of the previous years and add new attractions to continually showcase the town, its people and the true Aussie owutback.

Building on the success of previous years, the Festival is quickly becoming more than bulls, bikes and butts. Situated in the centre of the adventurous Overlander’s Way, the Julia Creek Dirt & Dust Festival provides the focal

point in the magnificent month of April for our many visitors who gather and celebrate, before heading out to explore or work in our glorious outback.

The Julia Creek Dirt & Dust Festival now offers visitors three jam-packed days of fun and entertainment. Experience real outback hospitality when the tiny North West Queensland outback town of Julia Creek swells from 400 people to 3,000 in one weekend! See the gutsy outback triathlon teams in action, back a winner at the Artesian Express Outback Horse Races, kick on til late with nightly outdoor concerts, or check out the spectacular Dirt n Dust Bullride, sanctioned by PBR.
