The Arid Lands Festival will be held in the tiny outback Queensland town of Hughenden. The festival is going to showcase the Australian Outback and how people live work and play in one of the more arid parts of the world.

The feature event will be the Great Hughenden Camel Endurance Race. With a $50,000 plus prize purse, people and camels will be coming from around the world to compete in this 160 kilometre endurance race.

With street displays, international speakers and static exhibits the festival will focus on sustainable living in arid regions. A national photographic competition will be run, allowing people to express their vision and life experiences in remote Australia. A Saturday night concert featuring top line Australian artists will bring people from miles around to forget their worries and celebrate life and living in a sometimes harsh environment.
