Festival Program

Friday 1 October: Arrive at Undara Experience for the first Rockabilly music show featuring five hours of music and dancing.

Saturday 2 October: Classic Car & Bike convoy departs Undara Experience at 9am and drives 55 fully sealed kilometres west into the classic outback town of Mt Surprise, where you’ll be the centrepiece of a day of fun and excitement for the local community. There will be a carnival atmosphere in this great little town today with music and dancing, local markets, food stalls, sausage sizzles, artists’ workshops and fun for the whole community. At 3pm, the Classic Car & Bike convoy says goodbye to Mt Surprise and makes the return journey back to Undara Experience. That evening there’ll be another five hours of Rockabilly music and dancing.

Sunday 3 October: From 7am, just in case you haven’t got to inspect all the Classic Cars & Bikes yet, there will be a morning show at Undara Experience, before the Rockabilly Recovery Jam Session. This show kicks off at 11am and is six hours of music and dancing. It is a HELL of a way to finish what will be an awesome festival!

Monday 4 October: Queen’s Birthday Public Holiday; check out of Undara Experience and make your way home.
