Your Guide to Christmas in Flinders Ranges and Outback

Christmas heats up for towns in the Flinders and Outback

It’s going to be an ACCA/DACCA Christmas in the Outback at Leigh Creek this year as the first Christmas Pageant since 2015 kicks off this weekend. With live music covering one of Australia’s favorite bands, the weekend will see revelers taking the trip north to celebrate Christmas in a uniquely Aussie way.

Held at the town oval, there’ll be a rebirth of the Leigh Creek Christmas Pageant as well as amusement rides, food, and drinks stalls. Ending the night with some spectacular outback fireworks, this event promises to be a weekend like no other.

With limited EFTPOS and being a 3G phone coverage area, cash up before you hit town.
