4 Day Festival Classic Cars & Motorbikes Rockabilly Music & Dancing

Friday 2nd – Monday 5th October 2020. The Undara Outback Rockabilly Rods & Rides festival promises to be unlike any other festival of its kind in Tropical North Queensland and is certain to attract a whole new market to the Gulf Savannah region over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in October 2020.

It’s a 4-day celebration of classic cars and motorbikes, with Rockabilly music and dancing incorporating and featuring our local Mount Surprise and Unearth Etheridge community.

At Undara we’re really excited about this one and are certain it will quickly become as popular as the Undara Outback Rock & Blues festival. So, if you have a classic car or motorcycle, and would love to Rock & Roll dance in one of the most unique venues in Australia, then this is a weekend for you! For a full list of events, accommodation and details, download our Outback Rockabilly Rods & Rides Festival flyer here.

There will be multiple opportunities to show off your pride and joy, while enjoying a weekend filled with Rockabilly music and Rock & Roll dancing!
