More Info

A festival held every two years that truly captures our living history and celebrates the relaxed country lifestyle of the Miles District, the Beef, Bells and Bottle Tree Festival has evolved out of past Miles festivals and is named after three iconic symbols of the district. The cattle industry has long been an important part of our economy, and the famous Condamine or "Bullfrog" Bell is significant of the working bullocks that helped to shape this region. Bottle trees are a distinctive feature of our landscape and can be seen amongst the paddocks as you pass through our communities. The Beef, Bells and Bottle Tree Festival showcases the vitality of our district through a range of arts and cultural activities, entertainment, and a vibrant street parade which meanders down our main street and ends with a carnival style family fun day. Coinciding with the spring flourish of wildflowers, this is the perfect time of year to visit and explore our unique neck of the woods.
