Peaks to Points Festival 2021
This two-week-long outdoor festival features everything from bushwalking and birdwatching to tree-planting.
Itching to enjoy the great outdoors, but can't escape the big smoke? Don't worry — you don't need to travel far. Brisbane's annual Peaks to Points Festival will get you out, about and immersed in natural surroundings without venturing beyond the city.
Birdwatching in suburbia taking a bushwalk without leaving the city limits are just some of the events on the agenda — alongside spotting koalas, paddling in creeks, orienteering and planting trees. Workshop-wise, you can also learn about controlling weeds, and discover how to turn your kitchen and garden waste into compost.
Running from Saturday, July 17–Sunday, August 1, Peaks to Points is all about showcasing the south side of the Brisbane River, so expect to explore everywhere from Carina, Mount Gravatt and Corinda to Ipswich, Redlands and Logan. It's family-friendly, should you have a little nature-lover in tow — and, even better, plenty of events are free.
