About the Festival

The Peaks to Points Festival, proudly supported by the Brisbane City Council, brings the community together to celebrate the diverse ecosystems of greater Brisbane’s southern region through a program of interactive, informative and fun-filled events.

The next festival will be held from 14-29 July 2018. 

Peaks to Points shines a spotlight on the community’s efforts to care for our creek catchments and natural areas on the south side of Brisbane. The event culminates with Festival Family Day presented by Brisbane MarketPlace at the Oxley Creek Common. A highlight of the fortnight, the day features children’s theatre, live music, dancers, street performers, activities, workshops, stall and displays.

Previously known as the Oxley Creek Water Festival, which focused on the Oxley Creek catchment between Tennyson/Graceville and Mount Perry on the north eastern side of Flinders Peak, the Peaks to Points Festival was held for the first time in 2008. The festival now encompasses the areas on the southern side of the Brisbane River from Ipswich to Redlands,  an area of approximately 750 square kilometres.

Previous Festival events have included bird-watching, koala-spotting, canoeing, tree planting, platypus spotting, twilight concerts, walks in natural areas, tours of environmentally significant sites such as the Greenbank Military Training Area, orienteering walks and evening wildlife-spotting walks. The program for the 2016 festival is currently being finalised. Subscribe to our newsletter so you can stay up to date with all the great activities being held.

The festival wishes to acknowledge the generous support of its major partner, the Brisbane City Council, and 2016 sponsors Brisbane MarketPlace, Channel 7, 4ZZZ, Lend Lease, Ipswich City Council and BMag.
