Centred around the town’s historic Palace Hotel, which played a key role in the hit 1994 movie about three drag queens touring the outback by bus, the Broken Heel Festival will run over the weekend of September 8-10, 2017. The unique festival offers three days of drag, divas, disco, dress-ups and ‘damn good times’. Entertainment includes cabaret and comedy acts, a gender-swapping ABBA cover band called BAAB, a dress-up ‘Lap of the Main Drag’ contest in the city’s main street and a chance to meet cast and crew from the movie.
As a local sponsor of the festival, Out of the Ordinary Outback and its award-winning tour arm, Tri State Safaris, will run two, special tours to highlight the spectacular, desert scenery used to backdrop the film.
