ABOUT THE FESTIVAL.
The Peaks to Points Festival, proudly supported by the Brisbane City Council, is a biennial event that aims to provide a forum for community groups and business on the south side of the Brisbane River (including Ipswich, Redlands and Logan City Councils areas) to collaborate in engaging with the community, hosting events and activities focusing on important environmental & sustainability issues in the area.
The 2018 festival program features over 35 family friendly events, taking place between 14- 29 July.
The highlight of the fortnight celebrations is the FREE Family Day, presented by Brisbane MarketPlace at the Oxley Creek Common, on Sunday 15 July from 10am - 3pm. The day features live entertainment, children's activities, interactive and informative stalls, along with food and beverage vendors.
Previously known as the Oxley Creek Water Festival, which focused on the Oxley Creek catchment between Tennyson/Graceville and Mount Perry on the north eastern side of Flinders Peak, the Peaks to Points Festival was held for the first time in 2008. The festival now encompasses the areas on the southern side of the Brisbane River from Ipswich to Redlands, an area of approximately 750 square kilometres.
Other events held throughout the two weeks will include bird-watching, canoeing, bus tours, bird watching, platypus watch, tree-plantings and bush walking.
