Established in 2018 by Western Downs Regional Council, Big Skies is a nine-day calendar of events celebrating the sights, sounds, tastes and unique experiences of the Western Downs.
Lead by the iconic Dalby Picnic Races (a Western Downs tradition since 1902), the Big Skies festival boasts an unrivalled events calendar.
Take a peak inside the majestic Jimbour House, experience the sale day action at the Dalby Saleyards Tour, feast with friends and food lovers alike at a Long Lunch in Dalby or Miles, and experience what makes the Western Downs so special on a self-driven Regional Tour.
When the sun sets over the Jimbour Plains, expect the excitement to continue. Gather around the crackling Camp Bonfire and experience our famous country hospitality and secret recipes at the Camp Oven Experience.
Witness the amazing starscapes as you snuggle up at the Outdoor Cinema, where you’ll experience stars on the big screen and even bigger stars in the Jimbour night sky.
Big Skies comes to a show stopping pinnacle with the Day on the Plain concert at Jimbour House. Join a lineup of Aussie music legends at the distinctive Jimbour Amphitheatre and take in the atmosphere of thousands of music lovers in the shadow of the grand sandstone mansion. The party continues back at the campsite with the Day on the Plain Late Show, headlined by our own talented local musicians.
Sunday morning treat yourself to a hearty Camp Breakfast and explore the regional hub of the Western Downs with festivities in the main street of Dalby.
