On the eighth day of our epic journey, we trot into Charleville for the inaugural Outback Sounds— a one-day, family-friendly music festival proudly reigning as the pinnacle event of The Outback Trail.

Outback Sounds will transform the Charleville Showgrounds into an outback oasis, where the spirit of music, arts, food and community bursts to life. To start Outback Sounds with a bang, we’ve mustered a star-studded line-up featuring a plethora of Australia’s most loved musos to take to The Courier Mail Main Stage.

Renowned indie-rock heroes Ball Park Music are leading the charge, alongside distinguished alt-rock luminary and Something For Kate frontman Paul Dempsey. In tow are folk sensations Pierce Brothers, country-pop rising star Taylor Moss, alt-country powerhouse Tori Forsyth, North-Western QLD country artist Wade Forster and homegrown heroes Ned and The Kellys, ensuring there’s a tune for everyone to tap their boots to.

Audiences will also be treated to a special performance from William Barton, Australia’s leading didgeridoo player and acclaimed composer, instrumentalist and vocalist. Through his remarkable musicality and deep connection to his Kalkadunga heritage, William Barton has expanded the boundaries of the didgeridoo, enriching both its cultural significance and the landscapes it embodies.

In between sets, have a squizz at the plethora of market stalls hosted by local vendors and discover a treasure trove of goodies ripe for the picking. And when your taste buds beckon, bog in to delicious eats from the diverse array of food stalls scattered throughout the site.

Outback Sounds isn’t just a festival; it’s a celebration of music, creativity and the warm spirit of community, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Queensland outback.
