The tenth annual Highlands Bushfest is being held over two days, Saturday and Sunday, November 24 & 25 2024 and will celebrate and showcase the Central Highlands region of Tasmania, its heritage, outdoor lifestyle, culture and communities.

It will be held at the Bothwell Recreation Ground, which is located in the township of Bothwell on the A5, 20kms from the Midland Highway, 50 mins from Hobart and 1hr 45 minutes from Deloraine and Launceston.

Highlands Bushfest will feature the unique outdoor pursuits of the region – fishing, hunting, camping and other recreational and adventure activities.

It will also highlight food and beverage, tourism, arts and crafts, music and small business. While you are visiting Bothwell for Highlands Bushfest we encourage you to check out Bothwell Township and plan a cheeky picnic in Market Place Park.
