Let summer live on in autumn in Tropical North Queensland.

The landscape is lush, the creeks and rivers are full and waterfall chasing is spectacular.

In the middle of autumn, April is full on our calendar, how about yours?

Easter, school holidays, clearer weather and milder temperatures are ingredients for don’t-miss outdoor events.

Here’s a few to put on your itinerary.

Easter At Einasleigh packages races and rodeo into one fun-filled camping weekend on 15-17 April.

The program starts on Good Friday with a fishing competition on the banks of the Copperfield and Einasleigh rivers.

Saturday features the races, followed by the ABCRA-sanctioned rodeo, with participants vying for points and prizemoney.

While you have the camping gear out, head two hours up the road, for the Undara Outback Rock & Blues on 22-25 April. 

Three separate shows over three days, featuring some of the finest emerging artists in the country, in one of the most magical places around.

Round out the weekend with a tribute to our fallen soldiers at the Anzac Day Dawn Service in the Undara Volcanic National Park.

Cazalys Cairns will host AFL match St Kilda versus Port Adelaide on Saturday 30 April. Part of Round 7, home-team St Kilda will be keen to get a notch on the board with Adelaide having won the last two matches between the teams.

Extending into the next month, Yungaburra Triathlon, 30 April – 1 May, is calling out for all swimmers, runners and cyclists keen to swan about one of the Atherton Tableland’s most adorable villages. 

Yungaburra is home to the event that welcomes 600 participants each year. 

Get involved or cheer on a friend, but be sure to visit the town’s iconic pub, dating back to 1910.
