Arts Culture and Heritage

You don’t have to travel far to experience amazing arts and cultural experiences in the Western Downs region.

Our region boasts a rich fabric of art and cultural events, with everything from small volunteer run museums to cutting edge contemporary art galleries.

Local events and festivals provide the community and visitors to our region colourful and exciting opportunities to participate in the arts.

Western Downs has a strong performing arts scene, and celebrates all types of creativity, with everything from live music to local theatre groups.

We support our local artists and community through the Regional Arts Development Fund to ensure opportunities our communities need to thrive.

So why not get involved!
