Looking for a great afternoon of live Aussie music? Look no further! Coming back bigger and better in its third year running, this year’s Stones Corner Festival will come alive on Sunday May 29 at Stone’s Corner. Sponsored by the Stones Corner Hotel and growing in popularity over the last few years, the Stones Corner Festival has fast become a SEQ destination street festival.
