The Funfest Festival is an annual event conveniently located 2 hours away from Queensland's Capital - Brisbane. Nanango is the 4th oldest town in the state and has a fascinating heritage to explore. Nanango's annual event used to be called the Pioneer Festival, until numbers began to dwindle, and the town’s spirit about the festival became unfavourable.
In 2006, the festival re-vamped and re-named itself to the FUNFEST Festival. In the lead up to the festival there is a Funfest Queen and Funfest Princess judging event, held at the famous, re-furnished, historic hospital Ringsfield. With a history to explore, secret cupboards and an old maids room, the house is a must to discover on the judging of the queens and princesses night. Other places to explore while visiting the Shire, Bunya Mountains, Coomba Falls, Ringsfield Historic House, Tipperary Flat and much much more.
Peanut Capital of Australia is only 20 minutes away. Visit our Visitor Information Centre.
