Enjoying the unique combination of music, winter warmth and tropical location is the ultimate way to experience the best this beautiful region has to offer.

24th July - Governor’s Gala, 8pm, Townsville Civic Theatre.

This Saturday evening concert is packed to the rafters! Ever wondered what would happen if 25 celebrated Australian composers all wrote miniature variations on Beethoven’s iconic theme Ode to Joy? Come and discover for yourself – this will be unique and not to be missed.

29th July - Immortal Beloved, 5pm, Townsville Civic Theatre.

After the triumph of Being Mrs Bach 3 years ago, Jessica Duchen has recently turned her attention to Beethoven. This chamber version has been specially created for AFCM and promises to be equally special. We can look forward to music and words illuminating the very essence of this romantic story.

Spoil your significant other with a 'Sip and Sail' with Pilgrim Sailing (Top Tip: if you’re looking to pop the question – now is the time!). Bring your swimmers, towel and sunnies (and do not forget the camera) and enjoy each others' company!

1st August - Magnetic Island After Party

A perfect way to close out your time in Townsville is with a delightful concert on Magnetic Island. Soak up the sunshine on the seaside deck at Peppers Blue on Blue, enjoy a drink or two and mix with other guests whilst listening to some beautiful music played by Festival artists and a 30th Anniversary Quiz!

Enjoy Magnetic Island at your leisure, doing as little or as much as you like. With short hiking tracks, snorkelling trails and water sports galore there is something to excite every loved-up couple.

In between all the sweet sounds of AFCM, take a step back in time and relax and unwind in an outback town that has stood still for decades and enjoy an overnight tour with Raven Tours. 

Stay at the resort-style City Oasis Inn in the heart of the city and close to the Strand and entertainment district and enjoy all that Townsville has to offer. A short stroll from your accommodation you will find award winning restaurants, nightlife, entertainment and major tourist attractions.
