A look at one of our past Rock & Mineral fests over the past few years.

               Once again our annual Rockfest was a huge success. This Fest has grown From an idea to get Rockhounds together for a fun-filled three day campout to a huge event. Stall holders from around Australia attended this year for the campout. The weather was perfect and sunny as Queensland mostly is! 
A large crowd of spectators visited the Fest to stock up on the variety of rocks, fossils, and minerals that were available from the many stall holders.  Entertainment was supplied by local bands, artists demonstrating  pottery, gold panning, cartoon portraits, crystal healers, massage, Reiki and lots more. This year we enjoyed talks on rocks and minerals by a famous British geologist on how they were formed by molten lava from deep below the earth spewed up by volcanic eruptions, and a Dutch palaeontologist who explained which bone fits where in prehistoric birds and animals. At night huge campfires were lit with wine and song by the many Rockhounds attending.  The atmosphere for the weekend was an unbelievably happy one.  We all look forward to next year's Fest weekend in July30-2 August August 2021
Thank you Rockhounds for making this event the most popular in Queensland.   John & Team.
