Set your sights on Tropical North Queensland and feast your eyes on this festival. Held in Palm Cove, Reef Feast is considered one of the region's premier events celebrating local cuisine, produce, music, and of course, the Great Barrier Reef against which it is set. Dine under the stars or experience prawns and jazz at the jetty in this charming seaside village. Enjoy coconuts and cocktails, sparkling wine and fromage and a market day.

19 – 22 October
Unplug from the ordinary as the globally-acclaimed Wanderlust experience hits the Sunshine Coast as part of its 2017 festival season across three continents, promoting fitness, fun and mindful living. This truly holistic event draws together a line-up of internationally-recognised yoga and meditation instructors alongside speakers, artists, chefs and even headline music acts. Indeed, music is 'the heartbeat of Wanderlust festivals', with experiences ranging from DJ-powered yoga classes to acoustic musical meditations and electric main stage performances.


20 – 22 October
The Gold Coast roars into action each October when the Virgin Australia Supercars race into town for the Gold Coast 600. On track, the highlight will be the PIRTEK Enduro Cup final in which supercar drivers battle it out on one of the world's toughest street circuits to claim the ultimate endure racing title. The world-renowned Super Stadium Trucks will also ramp up the on-track action with the international spectacle joining Porsche Carrera Cup, V8 Utes and Formula 4, supporting all the Supercar action. The Super Stadium Trucks, dubbed 'the monsters on wheels' generate speeds of up to 220km/h, jump man-made ramps, and fly 100 metres through the air, two storeys off the ground. Off track, events are just as explosive with a huge concert line-up, which in 2016 included including Aussie electro sensation Peking Duk, Birds of Tokyo, The Rubens and The Living End.
