Peaks to Points Festival showcases the beauty in our backyard
Discover the beauty in greater Brisbane’s backyard at the Peaks to Points Festival 2014, from Saturday 19 July to Sunday 3 August 2014. Experience amazing natural areas right at your doorstep through free events and hands-on activities from the ‘peaks’ - Flinders Peak near Ipswich - across the south side of the Brisbane River, to the ‘points’ of Moreton Bay.
The festival brings together community groups, local businesses, councils and environmental groups to celebrate greater Brisbane’s ‘wild side’. Through bush walks, canoeing, birdwatching, tree plantings, workshops, bus tours and lots of other great eco-activities you can learn more about our wonderful natural environment, and how we can protect and enhance it.
The festival kicks off with Family Day at the Oxley Creek Common on Sunday 20 July 2014 (free entry). Take in the winter sun while enjoying live entertainment, children’s activities, canoeing on Oxley Creek, displays, workshops and a selection of hot and cold food.
We are currently looking for groups to host activities as part of the festival. It's a great way to raise awareness of our precious natural areas and celebrate the efforts of your group.
