The Peaks to Points Festival brings the community together to celebrate the diverse ecosystems of greater Brisbane’s southern region through a program of interactive, informative and fun-filled events.
Held over two weeks from Saturday 1st to Sunday 16th September 2012, Peaks to Points shines a spotlight on the community’s efforts to care for the creek catchments and natural areas on the south side of Brisbane.
Previously known as the Oxley Creek Water Festival, which focused on the Oxley Creek catchment area between Beaudesert and Oxley, Peaks to Points was held for the first time in 2008 and encompassed the catchment groups of Wolston/Centenary, Bulimba Creek, Bayside Creeks and Eprapah Creek, an area of approximately 750 square kilometres.
Peaks to Points officially opens with the Festival Family Day on Sunday 1st September at Oxley Creek Common. A highlight of the fortnight, Festival Family Day will feature children’s theatre, live music, dancers, street performers, activities, workshops, stall and displays.
Other Festival events will include bird-watching, koala-spotting, canoeing, tours of the Greenbank Military Training Area and Brisbane City Council sustainable water projects, and an evening wildlife-spotting walk.
