Big Red in the Simpson Desert will be closed at the times listed below for a two day music festival in July. Organisers have kept closures as short as possible to minimise inconvenience. The closures have been planned due to limited space for vehicles and for safety reasons and have been organised in association with the lease-holder Brook Proprietors/Adria Downs, Diamantina Shire Council, Queensland National Parks and Queensland Police.

4WDers are asked to use Little Red, 3km to the south during the closure periods.

The festival features many Australian music legends including John Williamson, Kasey Chambers, Daryl Braithwaite, Joe Cammilleri, James Reyne, Ross Wilson and more and is a fund raising event for diabetes research.

After 12 noon each day - Big Red closed - No vehicle access to the top of Big Red or on any vehicle access tracks.

Too little time in the bush!
