What started as a little friendly competition around the campfire has evolved to become one of Queensland’s flagship tourism events. Located in Millmerran (82km from Toowoomba, Queensland), The Australian Camp Oven Festival was the brainchild of outback icons Gary Fogarty and Ned Winter.

Following modest beginnings in 1999, ACOF is now widely known as Australia’s most iconic camp oven festival.

Our quirky program celebrates authentic Aussie traditions including camp oven cooking, damper throwing, billy boiling, bush poetry, country music and bush heritage displays.

Come October 2024, the coals will be stoked, caravans unhitched and the damper rising as we welcome people from all walks of life to our quiet, rural town.

So dust off the camping gear, prep the camp oven and start planning your trip as we celebrate the Australian Camp Oven Festival, 5 – 6 October, 2024!
