Have an eventful time in the Scenic Rim with our year-round calendar of festivals, shows, races and events.
The Scenic Rim Clydesdale Spectacular is the richest Clydesdale Show in the Southern Hemisphere.
Held in June each year in beautiful Boonah it showcases the gentle giants of the horse world – majestic Clydesdales – recognised in Australia as ‘the breed that built the nation’.
Over two action packed days, a full program of Clydesdale competition will take place in the main arena at the Boonah Showground, including led, carriage and harness classes. And there’s much more….
The program also features rare trades demonstrations that focus around “the heavy horse” – harness making, blacksmithing, wheelwrights, carriage rides, and whip plaiting. Additional highlights include the Queensland Whip Cracking Championships, the World Billy Boiling Championships, wood chopping, working dog displays, Friesian Horse Troupe performances and bush poetry.
In tribute to the Scottish descendants who moved to the region and brought with them their beloved Clydesdale breed, the event includes Pipes and Drums, Calling of the Clans, the Clydesdale and Clan class and traditional Scottish caber tossing. There’ll be whisky, haggis burgers and more, Scots are encouraged to attend in their clan kilts!

We are proud of our diverse communities within the region. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the many lands within the Scenic Rim - the Mununjali in the Centre, the Wangerriburra to the East, the Ugarapul to the West, and all those of the Yugambeh and Jagera language groups. We pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
