Join a trail of music and discovery through outback Queensland

by Staff

The Queensland Music Festival’s Outback Trail returns this year with an exciting nine-day itinerary including seven events.

The 2024 Outback Trail starts on Saturday, 13 April, in Goondiwindi with an official launch event, Saddle Up, featuring music by homegrown Split Image and rising country pop star Chloe Styler.

Crafted as a self-driving adventure, the trail allows you to build your itinerary and tailor your adventure to your unique preferences while offering great music and outback tourism experiences.

Plan your journey to attend as many events as you desire or customise your experience by selecting the events and attractions that resonate with you.

From soulful folk melodies under the starry skies to foot-stomping country tunes, the Trail will feature sounds from a diverse mix of beloved local, QLD-based, and national musicians, taking over Queensland’s small outback town pubs, main streets, and public spaces.

After seeing great success last year Daryl Raven, COO of QMF, was excited for the 2024 Outback Trail.

“Thanks to the support from the Queensland Government, our trails created so many incredible moments, and lifetime memories for locals, and visitors, throughout the state this year …something which we can’t wait to do again with the return of the Outback Trail in 2024,” Mr Raven said.

“Regional Queensland is a place where the outback’s soul is intertwined with music and the perfect backdrop to invite music enthusiasts and other adventurous visitors from near and far to join us in celebrating such a unique cultural tourism experience.”
