The people of Tully don’t seem to mind the fact that they live in Australia’s wettest town; in fact they celebrate it each year in September with The Golden Gumboot Festival.
If you think you can throw a size eight gumboot the greatest distance you could be in with a chance. If not, there are plenty of other fun festival things to keep you entertained.
Kicking off with a parade through Tully’s main street, this family orientated fun day out offers Gumboot Games, a car and bike Show ‘N’ Shine, entertainment, music, displays, children’s activities and food and market stalls.
Tully is situated midway between Cairns and Townsville and is surrounded by World Heritage rainforest, sugar cane fields and banana plantations.
Tully Golden Gumboot Festival is held at the Tully Showgrounds annually in September. Tully is located 140 km south of Cairns.
