Stawell Easter Gift   

The Australia Post Stawell Gift has been held in all but four years since 1878, and is one of the world’s most famous and prestigious foot races. Run on grass, athletes are handicapped according to form and ability, and start off varying marks accordingly. Runners race for glory and prize money with many more dollars working their way through the bookies ring.

The main race is the Australia Post Stawell Gift which is run over 120m up a slight gradient, and the final is traditionally held on Easter Monday. Venue Unlike the World Championships or Olympic Games which are conducted on synthetic rubber surfaces, the Australia Post Stawell Gift is run on a grass track.

For the majority of the year, Central Park in the regional town of Stawell is home to local AFL football and cricket, but at Easter time it transforms into an athletics mecca.

For the sprint events, the athletes run in lanes that are separated by lane ropes, not painted lines. The famous finish gates are one of the most iconic features of the Gift. Handicapping Runners are handicapped according to form and ability, and start off varying ‘marks’ accordingly.

For many runners, the key to success at Stawell is to beat the handicapper – meaning they may not have displayed the form they are capable of in the lead-up to the event in the hope of receiving a handicap or ‘mark’ that might make victory more achievable.

Held in the beautiful island of Tasmania, Chocolate Winterfest is situated at Latrobe, just 10 minutes drive from Devonport...

Chocolate Winterfest is Latrobe's wickedly delicious festival celebrating all things chocolate.

Just the mere mention of chocolate turns heads and that's what Chocolate Winterfest, Latrobe will do to you.

Chocolate Winterfest, Latrobe will indulge, inform, astound, amuse but above all celebrate chocolate as you escape from the bleakness of winter. Be indulged by events individually or successively as you immerse in this chocolate experience.

Don't deny one of life's pleasures - join us at Latrobe on the central northern coast of Tasmania for this unique celebration.

From its humble beginnings as a five day event in 1964, depicting plant specimens in jars on trestle tables, the festival has blossomed into the current format of floral displays, live music, exhibitions, workshops, interpretive artworks, guided walks and family activities during the entire month of September.

The Kings Park Festival presented the ‘Magic of Nature’ in September 2014. Nestled among the most spectacular wildflower show on Earth, around 600,000 visitors enjoyed a bewitching program of live music, exhibitions, fascinating guided walks, family fun and much more.

Outdoor exhibitions ‘Unearthed’ and ‘Uprooted’ took visitors on a journey below ground to explore a different perspective of the natural world.

The 2014 Kings Park Festival was made possible through the valuable support of major Festival partner Santos, Lotterywest, the Friends of Kings Park and The West Australian newspaper. We are also grateful to the army of volunteers and staff who bring the Festival to life each year.

Thank you to everyone who made the 2014 Kings Park Festival such a success – especially our wonderful visitors who danced, picnicked, strolled, listened, watched and smiled through another fabulous September.

Breakfast With The Cars has become a classic start to the day as entrant vehicles start arriving ahead of their official flag off by Mr Glen Dix of Grand Prix fame at 8.30am.

This is your chance to get up close and personal with motoring history. Meet the owners, admire these stunning vehicles and remember when ... back to an era when cars and music were the lifestyle.

Deni Ute Muster   

Many suggestions were raised and discussions centered on the shape and genre of the new festival, what was unanimously agreed though, was that it must showcase our pride of our unique Deniliquin way of life.

Hence the Deni Play on the Plains Festival was conceived, a festival to be held on the flattest, natural, open plains on earth, ute culture an intrinsic part of Deniliquin, would play a major part of the festival and hence the Deni World Record Ute Muster burst into the national psyche.

An amazing 2839 drivers took part, clearly establishing Deniliquin as the ute capital of the world and wrote itself into history claiming the Guinness Book of Records title for the largest parade of legally registered utes in the World.

A new world record bid has been held as part of the annual Play on the Plains Festival each September/October NSW Labour Day Long weekend since then, bringing more and more utes and visitors to our town every year.

Our Festival is a not for profit community event, run by 5 staff, Board of Directors, a volunteer working party and huge support from our local businesses, organisations, sponsors and volunteers.

The program provides entertainment for patrons of all ages including live music for over 24 hours during the event, free children's activities, carnival rides, a ute museum, sports driving competitions, bull ride and interactive competitions.

Elmore Field Days   

The first Elmore Field Days were held in October 1964 after a voluntary Committee organised the first comprehensive display of farming equipment and services alongside the Campaspe River.

The permanent site now has a developed cost approaching $2.5 million and is being continuously enhanced by the construction of additional buildings for both the public and exhibitors, provision of additional services including equipment demonstration areas.

Elmore has gained recognition as one of Australia’s premier agricultural Field Days.

The Elmore Events Centre is home to the annual Elmore Field Days in October each year together with a growing range of agricultural and other functions and events. Conveniently situated in north central Victoria this unique venue will soon be an even more valuable facility when the major new development and building plan is completed later in the year to complement the existing facilities on the 154 ha site.

Since then – with blues added to the program in 1994 – it has grown to become an internationally renowned event, attracting around 25,000 visitors, and more than 200 jazz and blues artists from the USA, the UK, Europe and Australia.

With a diverse, eclectic mix of jazz greats and rising stars, each year the program showcases jazz and blues of all styles, including original, contemporary, traditional, mainstream, experimental and improvised. A central feature remains the National Jazz Awards; a competition designed to encourage and promote young musicians.

The Festival has won numerous tourism and sponsorship awards, and is recognised internationally as the foremost jazz and blues event in Australia.

Stanthorpe Rocks   

It wasn’t just the heat that broke records at Stanthorpe Rocks 2014, as the music festival also broke records being sold out early with a record number of attendees, which is quite an achievement for an event in its second year!

Fabulous feedback from attendees, vendors and business throughout the region is flowing in to event organisers, Slydogz Eventz.

“We’ve had lots of positive feedback and a lot of people wanting to book for next year already, which is great for the town and for all of us. Generally people had a really good time. One lady that called into the info centre had taken her mother and her daughter and they all really enjoyed themselves, so the line-up obviously had very broad appeal!” reported Franki from Top of the Town Tourist Park.

Event organiser, Ian Wade-Parker of Slydogz Eventz says the popularity of the event can be attributed to creating the perfect festival formula with even the smallest of details addressed.

“We were really happy with how the day went and the photos are testament to everyone having a great time as there are smiles all around! We are already planning next year to be bigger and better than ever with a new location that will give us more space and allow us to custom build the site. It’s a great event for the region and we are really proud of it,” said Ian Wade Parker, CEO of Slydogz Eventz.

“We’ve developed our own style for our festivals so that we deliver a premier and unique experience which is really attractive to the discerning festival goer. As well as terrific rock music we also provide a great selection of local food and beverages at reasonable prices, superior facilities with everything kept clean throughout the event, happy and friendly staff, a large dance area and even a chill out zone to kick back and relax in that showcases local acoustic musicians.”

It is estimated that the event returned over $1.2 million to the Granite Belt with over 70% of the ticket holders come from outside the region from as far away as Adelaide and Darwin.

There are returns to local accommodation, retail, food and beverage providers and community organisations such as Lions Club of Stanthorpe, Rotary Club of Stanthorpe and Rural Fire Service who undertook fundraising activities at the event.

Slydogz Events announced at the festival they are rolling out the Rocks Events throughout Queensland in 2015 including Charters Towers, Roma and other possible locations. Based on the highly successful Stanthorpe Rocks formula these events are set to be sure winners also.

From February 13-15, 2015 in a beautiful natural amphitheatre next to Australia’s longest river, we’re building a small stage on an old timber jetty.

You’re in for some treats this year. Sarah Blasko, Dan Sultan, Tex Perkins & The Dark Horses, The Whitlams, Diesel – it’s impossible to pick a favourite. We cannot wait to experience these artists under the red gums, and if you happen to be passing through we’d love you to join us. Bring a picnic. Bring your friends. Open a bottle of the good stuff and settle in for a weekend you won’t forget
