A celebration of all things melon and a tribute to our town's melon farming reputation, the Chinchilla Melon Festival has become a renowned Queensland event. Held in February every second year, the festival encompasses a week of activities with the highlight being the classic Family Fun Day and colourful street parade. If you've never skied on watermelons or attempted a melon bungee, then you need to put the Chinchilla Melon Festival at the top of your to-do list!
