Let it snow


One of Queensland’s premier winter school holiday events is about to take place in the high altitude town of Stanthorpe which delightfully celebrates being the coldest place in Queensland. The Snowflakes in Stanthorpe Winter Festival will return between 5-7 July.

Pack your winter woollies, the snow is on its way. Don’t miss your chance to frolic in freezing conditions, surrounded by rosy red cheeks and happy families.

The three day event starts on Friday 5 July when the main street of Stanthorpe will be packed with great entertainers, demonstrations, kids workshops, seasonal markets and local produce.

Join in the fun on Saturday 6 July at the Stanthorpe Snowgrounds when the snow comes to town. The gates open at 9am and your ticket price includes a huge range of free activities, including the massive snowfield (with separate under 8’s area), on-stage entertainment, fashion parade, igloo making, movies, giant snow globes, face painting, climbing wall, enchanted forest, jumping castles, petting zoo and ‘snow’ much more. Wander through the winter markets, indulge at the international food fest and relax in the local wine and beer marquee. The ice-skating rink will be available until 7pm at an extra cost of $20 per person.

On Sunday 7 July, head back to the Snowgrounds for more time on the ice-skating rink and plenty more snow. All of the activities are on again from 9am to 2pm. The Red Rooster Fun Run will keep the kids from five to 12-years-old warm before heading back on the freshly made snow.
