Victoria's historic coastal town of Queenscliff is home to the world's one and only Blues Train. It is a unique experience that combines four of Australia's best live acts and the beautiful scenery of the Bellarine Peninsula while aboard a real moving heritage train.
One of Australia's most spectacular entertainment experiences, it is a mini festival in one night, a progressive party you will never forget.
The Blues Train leaves Queenscliff Railway Station after guests have enjoyed a hearty meal complemented by a selection of local wines. The steam train then makes its way along 16 kilometres of track, gently rocking from side to side, seemingly in beat with the music.
At each of the stops, revellers swap carriages to see another of the acts, so by the end of the night patrons have seen all four acts performing on the train. Drinks are available from the mobile bar that appears on each platform (from the converted guard's van).
You can sit back, relax and listen to the music with a drinking on one of the seated carriages or get up and boogie the blues away in one of the dance carriages....
The 20th Queenscliff Music Festival hits the shores of Queenscliff this November 25-27.
An array of music guests to be announced in the coming months, the program will eventually feature over 50 artists performing 200+ shows in twelve venues throughout the historic seaside village of Queenscliff.
With a reputation for providing an intimate festival experience that threads its way through the quaint little venues in town, the festival grounds and gorgeous seaside views all within minutes walking distance, it is no wonder that a number of last year's performers proclaimed it the best festival ever, and punters hastily re-booked for 2015 before any names were announced or even Early Bird tickets went on sale.
Perhaps it is the choice of cosy houses to retreat to or nearby camping, the cafes and restaurants in town or the selection of gourmet food and beverage options inside the festival grounds, or the symbiosis between QMF and the Queenscliff community who together take pride in shining a light on the physical beauty and open-armed hospitality of their town. Queenscliff is a festival to be experienced with all five senses and not a weekend of being cattle prodded around cramped stages....
