Ultimate Childers Festival Package

Childers Festival 2022 will take place over a fun-filled 4-Days, with events launching Thursday 28 July to Sunday 31 July 2022.
This package features 2 (two) Childers Festival Events only available on Friday 29th July and Saturday 30th July. 

Welcome to Childers Festival 2022, the event that stops the Bruce Highway!

Come join us for a weekend of festivities as we celebrate the rich history and culture of this hinterland town, with the Ultimate Childers Festival Package

Kicking off Thursday 28 July, check in to your comfortable home away from home at the 4-star self-rated Burnett Riverside Hotel in a King Kitchenette Room nestled on the riverbanks of the mighty Burnett River in Bundaberg, just a 40min drive from the charming storybook town of Childers. Once you've settled in, spend your day exploring the region's local infused cafes or enjoy Childers Festival's FREE events such as an Art Walk from 10am-11am. 

Friday evening, head towards Childers for a cheeky Friday Session from 4 pm, before basking in the rich symphonies of Australian entertainment royalty, Kate Ceberano and her band of talented musicians at 6pm among heritage-listed walls of the Paragon Theatre, for a stunning one-night-only performance.

On Saturday, settle yourself among open picnic surrounds with stunning lake views with your ticket to Opera by the Lake and enjoy a two-hour fusion of operatic sounds by David De Vito and The Leading Men as they pay homage to musical theatre and Broadway showstoppers.

After weaving your way through the festival's FREE events (which you can pick and choose from the event program), don't miss exploring the region's must-do iconic attractions! 

Journey behind the scenes of Australia's largest craft distillery, with a Bundaberg Rum Expert and learn how this liquid gold is carefully blended and bottled using locally sourced ingredients since 1888, on a Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience. Uncover the family passion that has been crafting tasty brews for more than 50years at The Bundaberg Brewed Drinks Barrel with a self-guided tour and tasting of their unique and fruity flavour-filled range.
