Delicious key events include:


Welcome, Wine and Cheese


Launch into the Heartland Festival weekend with us at the Welcome, Wine and Cheese on Friday night, 20th September 2019. Mingle in a relaxed atmosphere with live music and a delicious grazing table. Take the opportunity to view the John Simpson exhibition and enjoy some local wines and spirits. Tickets are only $20 per person.


Saturday Market Day


Heartland Festival’s Market Day is getting more mouth-watering every year… come along to the Gayndah State School Oval on Saturday, 21st September 2019 where you can feast on ‘all things made, grown and produced in the North Burnett’. There will be plenty to see, touch, taste and take home as you make your way through the rows of stalls overflowing with fresh produce, flowers, art, ready-to-eat food, coffee, wine tasting and much more. A free children’s entertainment area will be available and there will be live entertainment throughout the day. Running from 9am to 3pm, entry is a gold coin donation at the gate.


Brushes, Blooms and Bubbly


Enjoy an afternoon overlooking the Burnett River and the historic Mt Lawless Rail Bridge while wandering through a flower farm with a glass of wine in hand. Watch a flower arrangement demonstration and sample delicious local produce from the grazing table. This ‘Flower Farm Experience’, including bus transport, is only $35 per person. Why not upgrade your afternoon to the ‘Full Flowers and Art Experience’, which includes everything above plus the opportunity to create your own artwork on canvas, with tutoring by Sue Capewell. Sue is an award-winning local artist and workshop facilitator who will guide you through painting a colourful bunch of flowers, or one of the other examples on display. You don’t need any painting experience to walk away with a beautiful art piece and a sense of accomplishment; just come along with an open mind and an old shirt to protect your clothes. All equipment is provided. This full experience is only $65 per person. Bottles of wine and bunches of organic flowers will be available for purchase. Tickets to this relaxing and creative afternoon will sell out fast, so get in quick! Please note, all tickets include bus transfer. Because of private organic planting, no private vehicles are allowed on the farm, so take the opportunity to jump on the bus (pick up and drop off at the Gayndah Bowls Club) and enjoy a few glasses of local wine throughout the afternoon! Pick-up time is 1.30pm and the bus will return to town after 6pm… just in time to take part in the Heartland Festival Food Bowl!


Heartland Festival Food Bowl


The Heartland Festival Food Bowl combines the ease of delicious ready-to-eat food with the fun of a ‘come-and-try’ outdoor bowls evening. Even if you’ve never bowled before, grab some friends or family and come along to the Gayndah Bowls Club for a great night out. Feel free to just bowl a few ends, or play a full game against another team. A full bar will be available, as well as softdrink, tea and coffee. Children are welcome at this family-friendly event. Please note: Meals are not included in the Food Bowl entry. Ready-to-eat food will be available for purchase. Tickets are $12 per player, including entry to the Food Bowl and green fees. Family tickets are available for $25 (2 adults and 2 or more children) and also include green fees. If you want to come along and enjoy the Food Bowl and watch the bowling, but don’t want to join in, entry-only tickets are available for just $5, which includes entry to the Food Bowl and a spectator-pass to the Bowls Club. There are a limited number of bowls spots available, so book your tickets now.

A basket laden with gorgeous food on a blanket spread out in the sunshine on beautiful Spring day; family and friends enjoying each other’s company before joining in traditional games of tug-o-war, egg and spoon race, sack races and tunnel ball; wandering through some market stalls and buying fresh produce before sitting back with a beverage from the bar listening to local entertainment…. put yourself in this scene at the Heartland Festival Family Picnic, to be held on the Gayndah State School oval on Sunday, 22nd September 2019.

Happy Valley Dairy Tour


Bring the kids, bring the grandkids…. bring your neighbour!.... and come and spend an afternoon at Happy Valley Dairy Stud, the home of Central Queensland Dairy Fresh, the freshest white milk in the North Burnett. See how it’s made, get up close and personal with the ol’ girls and their babies and learn a little bit about where your clean, fresh, local milk comes from. Meet the family and enjoy all the dairy has to offer with an old fashioned afternoon tea. Enjoy a scenic self-drive to Coalstoun Lakes before the tour starts at 2pm on Sunday, 22nd September 2019. Tickets are only $25 per person, but there is a maximum of 25 tickets available, so get in quick to secure yours.
