Body Art Festival

At the Australian Body Art Festival in Cooroy near Noosa, human bodies become canvases to transform into stunning works of art. If you are an accomplished body painter or just starting out, this festival provides the ideal platform to display your abilities – including competitions, workshops and parades with FREE admission for spectators!

Visitors stand in awe as talented artists transform human canvases into mind-altering creations. The event specializes in full body painting using various mediums including brushes and sponges, airbrushing and special effects.

There’s also the Krafty Kreative Korner with rock art and other quirky creations, as well as street performances, food, and market stalls on offer.

Goomeri Pumpkin Festival

As the name implies, this unique event offers plenty of pumpkin fun! Roll them, toss them and join the street parade at one of Queensland’s quirkiest festivals before eating your way through markets offering pumpkin scones, soups and sausages!

Since 1997, this family-friendly festival has been running and is well known for its great selection of quality market stalls, entertainment acts and delicious pumpkin food. Additionally, this is home to The Great Australian Pumpkin Roll competition where pumpkins race down Policeman’s Hill racing through their path before coming crashing back down with forceful impact at their final destination!
