LET THE MUSIC TAKE YOU.
Qld Music Trails is a first-of-its-kind music tourism experience that invites you to discover the wonders of Queensland through iconic music events.
#THE ADVENTURE STARTS HERE
Grab your friends and pack the van. Qld Music Trails brings Australia’s favourite music artists and places them in the most beautiful locations in the state. From stunning coastal mountains and sun-drenched beaches, the lush rainforests of the far north, or the endless horizons and open plains of the west - we will give you unique ways to explore Queensland one incredible music event after the other.
Sink into the soft grass of hinterland hills as golden voices soothe your soul. Reconnect with our ancient past on tropical sands. Witness epic stories under desert stars as an orchestra serenades the night. Or squeeze your bestie’s hand in an Outback pub and cheers the setting sun as the DJ drops the beat.
We kicked things off in 2021 with The Outback Music Trail – a 1,300km pilgrimage from Jimbour to Birdsville with pop, rock, opera and puppetry along the way. In 2022, we swapped the red desert for rolling green fields and put on The Long Sunset - an unforgettable one-day festival in the Scenic Rim that brought rapture to 5,000 joyous punters as Angus and Julia Stone, Ball Park Music and many more strew musical gold through the valley floor.
