By Elena Barton | 17th February 2017

Chinchilla, a town in the Darling Downs region of Queensland, just so happens to be the Melon Capital of Australia. Yes. That’s a thing. And you get to celebrate all things watermelon with an epic three-day festival.

Held biannually, the Chinchilla Melon Festival features three days of non-stop entertainment. There’s something for everyone with the Melon Fest Feast, Melon Rodeo, Farm Tours, Golf Days, Street Parade, Melon Markets and the ever-popular Melon Iron Man events.

There are competitions to be won, and you can also take part in melon skiing, melon bungy and even a melon chariot race for eternal glory. The Melon Festival Committee is made up solely of volunteers so pack up your mates and fill up the tank to road trip out to Chinchilla to support this wonderful community-run event and take part in the fruitiest festival around.
