The Queensland Government is proud to support Savannah In The Round – a new country music and camping festival experience on the Atherton Tableland.

An exceptional line-up of Australian acts will entertain visitors from the mainstage of Mareeba’s Kerribee Park Rodeo Grounds across the Queen’s Birthday long weekend from 1–3 October 2021.

Held on the traditional land of the Muluridji people, less than an hour’s drive from Cairns, Savannah In The Round presents exceptional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performers, art demonstrations and dreamtime storytelling.

The festival is part of Queensland’s extended Year of Indigenous Tourism in 2021,to promote authentic Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural and visitor experiences from the southern border to the Outback and to the Cape.

Savannah In The Round is a feature of the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar and is expected to be one of the largest cultural festivals held on the Atherton Table land.

We can stage events like Savannah In The Round because of the hard work and diligence of Queenslanders to manage the health impacts of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Community events like this are an important part of the Queensland Government’s Economic Recovery Plan for tourism. We want to encourage visitors to explore our wonderful State, support tourism operators, and back local jobs.

We hope you take advantage of the long weekend to visit the Atherton Tableland to experience the world’s oldest living cultures, discover the sensational sights and sounds of the Savannah, and enjoy the natural wonders and hospitality of Tropical Far North Queensland.
