Wittafest is very different to other festivals
It’s free. It’s non-commercial. It’s authentic.
You will be part of the cast in a new bi-annual gathering in Witta. Soak up the exhibition of local historical stories. Relax to live music. Treat yourself to home-made food and tasty boutique beers. Gently stroll through a guided tour – or two. Grow closer to the places and people of this historic community.
- ‘Teutoburg to Witta’ – find out what happened between 1900 and 1929, the First World War, a new name for the settlement, sporting achievements and much more besides…
- Teutoburg up to 1900 – find out about pioneer life here illustrated with historical photographs and telling local stories
- Maps and Surveying – inspect historical maps and plans of the area. Learn about how the land was surveyed. Locals can discover which pioneer family originally selected your property.
- Immigration in 19th Century Queensland – the Germans.
