The Unconformity is a contemporary arts festival exploring the unique paradoxes of Queenstown, in lutruwita/Tasmania, Australia. Walk the landscape, meet the people. Become disoriented, be provoked, feel your perceptions being challenged. And, find something of yourself, within a cultural frontier that exists on the edge, in wild western lutruwita/Tasmania. Inspired by a rare geological unconformity and the non-conforming nature of our community, The Unconformity is a biennial, four-day festival of site-specific cultural activities that cast new perceptions and opportunities for Queenstown, a remote post-industrial mining town in western lutruwita/Tasmania. The Unconformity festival returns in October 2025. Subscribe to our mailing list for date announcements.
