Charleville Takes Centre Stage on the Queensland Music Trail


Queensland Music Trails is once again offering an extraordinary music tourism adventure with the Outback Trail set to make tracks across Queensland from 13 – 21 April 2024. This year, Charleville features as a pinnacle festival destination along the trail that also includes Goondiwindi, Nindigully, Charlotte Plains, Quilpie and Tambo. On Saturday the 20th of April, the nine-day, one-of-a-kind adventure will roll into Charleville for the Outback Sounds festival, a one-day, family-friendly music festival that will stand as the premier event of the 2024 Outback Trail. 

Renowned artists such as Ball Park Music, Paul Dempsey, Pierce Brothers, Taylor Moss and Tori Forsyth will transform the Charleville Showgrounds into an outback oasis, where the spirit of music, arts, food and community will burst to life. Between sets, festival goers can explore an array of market stalls hosted by local vendors, offering an opportunity to discover and indulge in the region's local offerings from handmade crafts to delectable treats.

Mayor of Murweh Shire, Shaun “Zoro” Radnedge, said the whole town was thrilled that the Queensland Music Trails was coming to the Murweh Shire: “Charleville is excited to welcome the Queensland Music Trails and we're honoured to be a part of this unique musical adventure. This event brings together communities across Southwest Queensland and promises to be a fantastic experience, and Charleville, with its rich musical history is the perfect venue. We can't wait to share the warmth and hospitality of our town with attendees from near and far."
