Cobb & Co Festival – Australia’s Last Run

Yuleba Surat Road, Yuleba South, QLD
16/08/2024 to 25/08/2024

August 2024 marks 100 years since the last horse-drawn Cobb & Co mail coach kicked up dust on the dirt track from Surat to Yuleba, and a special ten-day Cobb & Co Festival will be staged to celebrate the centenary milestone.

The Cobb & Co Festival will run from Friday August 16 through to Sunday August 25 in the Maranoa region, 500km west of Brisbane. The all-ages family friendly festival will culminate on August 24 and 25 with a re-creation of the last Cobb & Co mail run in Australia on the 76-kilometre Cobb & Co Way, an historic route that runs between the picturesque towns of Surat and Yuleba.

The festival will kick off on Friday 16 August with the Cobb & Co Long Table Dinner under the stars while other events include bullock wagons, a horse art exhibition, markets, coach rides, bush poetry, draught horses, a camel-drawn Cobb & Co coach, clay target shooting, the Cobb & Co Festival Ball, period dress-up, live entertainment and an open-air concert taking place over the following ten days.

The Cobb & Co festival is a mix of free experiences and ticketed activities. The full program will be released in April when tickets will also go on-sale. Be warned – some events sell out quickly!
