Dive into Creativity and Nature: Proserpine Hinterland Festival 2024!


Get ready for a one-of-a-kind celebration right in the heart of Proserpine! The Proserpine Hinterland Festival, happening in May/June 2024, is set to be a unique blend of art, culture, and nature. Here's what you can look forward to and be involved in:


Artistic Extravaganza: Art Exhibition


The heart of the festival lies in the Art Exhibition, a tribute to "Enchanted Hinterland: A Celebration of Proserpine's Biodiversity." This inclusive platform beckons artists, both members and non-members, to interpret and present their unique perspectives on the region's rich tapestry of nature.


Discover Hidden Treasures: Rock Wallaby Treasure Hunt


Embark on an exciting adventure with the Rock Wallaby Treasure Hunt at the Proserpine Hinterland Festival. Participants, armed with an interactive app, set out to uncover hidden rock wallaby sculptures strategically placed across Proserpine. Along the way, they engage in tasks and activities that blend creativity with environmental awareness, fostering a deeper connection to the region's rich biodiversity. The hunt not only showcases the artistic contributions of Creative Connections Whitsunday (CCW) members but also encourages participants to interact with local businesses, providing a unique opportunity for these establishments to be part of a community-wide celebration.


Members of Creative Connections Whitsunday (CCW) have a unique opportunity to contribute their artistic touch by painting these sculptures, transforming them into captivating pieces of public art. As these artworks become integral to the treasure hunt experience, CCW members enjoy enhanced visibility and recognition within the community, showcasing their talent to a broader audience and fostering a deeper connection with the vibrant cultural tapestry of the Whitsunday Region. This immersive and creative adventure is not just a hunt; it's a celebration of artistic expression and community collaboration.
