Yungaburra is just a little over an hour drive from Cairns and is well worth the visit.
The village is located on the Tablelands and whilst visiting for the festival we highly recommend you stay a few extra days and discover this amazing region.
The Tableland Folk Festival is a testament to the diverse musical talent of Tropical North Queensland.
Held over a weekend this family event is packed with music, dance, workshops, and markets, both day and night, in venues throughout the picturesque village of Yungaburra.
You’ll be treated to traditional and contemporary folk, bluegrass, jazz, Latin, flamenco, and more.
There are plenty of options for accommodation in Yungaburra and neighbouring towns, including festival camping, only a short walk away at the Memorial Grounds.
If you would like to explore the pristine surrounds of the Atherton Tablelands, slip away to the rainforest and nearby waterfalls.

Every Sunday, on the waterfront at Market Park, you’ll find 150 stalls selling local produce, tasty delights, arts and crafts, fashion, and more.
Open Friday to Sunday, this bustling market of over 180 stalls sells everything, from the freshest fruits and vegetables to multicultural fare. A favourite among locals and tourists.
An eclectic mix of stalls, food court, and shopping mall, these vibrant markets are where you’ll find what you need, and perhaps walk away with things you didn’t need.
