3 Not-to-be-Missed Queensland Easter Festivals in 2019

As we revealed in our previous post about the mobile cold room advantages for Easter egg hunts, to hire mobile cold rooms in Brisbane is surprisingly beneficial. Not everybody knows that the mobile cold room rentals in Brisbane can help guarantee any local Easter egg hunt turns out grand. As good as that is, the benefits of renting a refrigerated vehicle in Brisbane doesn’t end there. Doing so can also make sure all the Easter festivals in Queensland this year run smoothly.

Aside from grand Easter egg hunts, festivals will be held across Queensland this year to celebrate Easter. There’s definitely going to be one you and your family or friends wouldn’t want to miss. If you want to know which one would be perfect for you, take your pick from these 3 Queensland Easter festivals we’re looking forward to:

Easter at Einasleigh

If you haven’t been to Einasleigh, it’s a small, scenic town in the northern part of Queensland. It’s a great place to spend a fun-filled family weekend of camping, swimming and fishing. If this is just what you and your family would enjoy, come visit and check out the local Easter festival, Easter at Einasleigh.

Easter at Einasleigh will be held at the Etheridge Area from 1921 April. There will be a fishing competition on Friday, around the picturesque Einasleigh River; a barbecue dinner on Friday night; a race meet on Saturday; and the Australian Bushmen’s Campdraft and Rodeo Association Ltd. (ABCRA) Rodeo on Sunday. There will also be a cabaret bar on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.

Entry before 2PM on Saturday costs $75, $55 after 2PM on Saturday and $30 on Sunday. All attendees under 16 will be allowed in for free.

Easter Vintage Festival

If you’ve ever wanted to experience how rural life was back in Australia’s pioneer days, you got to catch the 22nd annual Easter Vintage Festival at the Highfields Pioneer Village in Highfields, Toowoomba.

From 20–22 April, the Highfields Pioneer Village, a tourist destination made up of Australian history museums and a park in the town of Highfields in the Toowoomba region, holds its yearly Easter Vintage Festival. There will be a parade, live music, scrumptious food and a nursery, where you and your kids can see and pet some baby animals. Aside from visiting the museums and the fully restored slab cottage, you can also milk a cow, crack a whip, have some authentic damper and billy tea, as well as experience how it was to be a blacksmith back then here.

The cost of entry is $20 per adult, $5 per child, $45 per family, $10 per group, $15 per student and $15 per concession.

Roma’s Easter in the Country

From 18–22 April, the town of Roma in the Maranoa Region holds Roma’s Easter in the Country. It’s a 5-day celebration that not only celebrates Easter, but also the country lifestyle. Now on its 42nd year, it’s widely considered as one of the premier Easter festivals of South West Queensland. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, a culture buff or a laid-back type, you’ll have a great time at the festival.

Two of the events included in Roma’s Easter in the Country festival that we’re particularly excited about are the Outback Tucker Under the Stars and the Summit Racing Equipment Qld Championships.

The Outback Tucker Under the Stars is the opening dinner for Roma’s Easter in the Country festival this year. It will be held at the Roma Saleyard on Thursday, 18 April, from 6PM to 11PM. The highlight of the dinner will be beef provided by award-winning, paddock-to-plate meat hamper Maranoa Beef. The meal will be prepared by Australian celebrity chef Matt Golinski, who’s best known for regularly appearing on the popular daytime cooking programme Ready Steady Cook. He will be assisted by Glen Barratt, executive chef of the well-known local restaurant Wild Canary Bistro, and students from Roma TAFE. They will also provide a vegetarian option. There will also be a bar, free cocktails and live music.

Tickets will be sold at $70 per adult (13 and above) and $12 per child (up to 12). Only 200 tickets will be sold, so get your tickets as soon as possible before they run out.

The Summit Racing Equipment Qld Championships is a drag racing event that would be perfect for fans of the motor sport and thrill seekers alike. The first round will be held at the Iron Bark Raceway on Saturday, 20 April, from 12 noon onwards. There will also be a bar, a canteen and raffles. Entry costs $10 per adult (15 and above). Children 14 and below will be allowed in for free.

With all the delicious food and drinks to be served at these exciting Easter festivals, mobile cold rooms need to be kept on-site at each one to keep the food from spoiling, the drinks cold and all the attendees happy and safe.
