At this charming hinterland festival, more than 200 scarecrows, dotted along a 14-km trail, vie for best traditional, humorous, and celebrity titles. An accompanying exhibition in the iconic MT Brewery showcases the skills of local painters, sculptors and potters, bookbinders, and doll-makers. Performers, bands, buskers, and face-painters enliven Main Street on Saturday, Gallery Walk on Sunday. Saturday night, there’s a rollicking bush dance. Between times, enjoy Tamborine Mountain’s cafes, craft and antique stores, galleries, and wineries. Festival dates may change; check the website for updates.
