Gemfest Festival of Gems is coming back for 2018, kicking off this August 9-12! It's recognised as one of the most popular celebrations of sapphires and gems in Australia.
The 4-day festival is hosted at the home of the largest sapphire fields in the Southern Hemisphere and this year promises to be bigger than ever, offering a combination of traders and merchants, activities, exhibitions, entertainment, workshops, prizes, gem fossicking, demonstrations and much more!
You can also enter the popular Gemfest Raffle, where you'll be in the draw to win an exceptional prize pool including exclusive locally-made sapphire jewellery.
While sapphires are without a doubt the gem of choice at the festival, there will also be a range of diamonds, pearls, zircons, opals and more.
You also can't go past the Saturday Night Spectacular with live entertainment and fireworks!!
So, make sure you head to Gemfest this year - it's fun for the whole family!
