Princess River: Events

The Unconformity


The Unconformity (previously known as the Queenstown Heritage and Arts Festival) is a biennial three day festival that aims to be the most significant contemporary cultural programme in Tasmania. It aims to create arts and heritage experiences that are accessible, engaging, and fundamentally tied to a sense of place. The festival seeks to connect new people with our community and challenge existing perceptions of Queenstown, providing leadership to inspire people with the abilities and wealth of regional Tasmanian communities.
The biennial festival is a hand-crafted program of contemporary arts and cultural activities that are bold, fresh, surprising and fun - events that are fundamentally tied to a sense of place, a rare phenomenon which can't be seen anywhere else in Tasmania.
