28 Sept to 2 Oct 2023

Big Skies Festival is back in 2023, with a line-up of legendary Australian artists.

The location… well that’s a star in itself, the stunningly grand grounds of Jimbour House set against the big skies of the Western Downs, Queensland (20 minutes from Dalby).

Beyond the two days of live music on the main stage experience regional bus tours, the long lunch or sunset dinner, chill out at happy hour at the hangar, sit by the fire at the camp kitchen or take a tour inside Jimbour House.
