Gemfest – Festival of Gems – 30th Anniversary

There’s no better place to celebrate the origin, appeal and sheer beauty of precious and semi-precious stones at the home of the largest sapphire fields in the Southern Hemisphere. The annual Gemfest Festival of Gems is recognised as one of the most popular celebrations of sapphires and gems in Australia. Crowds of over 7000 people converge on Central Queensland’s Sapphire Gemfields for the annual four-day festival, held every year in the second week of August.

Gemfest has been running since 1988 and this year promises to be bigger than ever with an amazing combination of traders & merchants, activities, exhibitions, entertainment, workshops, prizes, demonstrations and much, much more.

While local sapphires are undoubtedly the gem of choice at the Festival, diamondspearlszirconsopals and other gemstones will also be amongst the sparkling array, along with gold, crystals, fossils and minerals.
