Mary Valley Scarecrow Festival

Scarecrow spotting could be the best remedy for people looking to escape the life-disrupting influence of COVID-19. The straw creatures are leaving the hills to take up residence in the Mary Valley and they want you to come and see them. Social distancing is easy because they are usually solitary additions in their yards and paddocks! The annual Mary Valley Scarecrow Festival is a popular Sunshine Coast event that runs from September 5th. Visitors are encouraged to plan a trip to the Mary Valley to see a few ‘crows, try out the new cafes in Imbil and watch the steam train roll into Amamoor and Dagun. The Mary Valley Scarecrow Festival finishes on October 3.

For day trippers, the festival is a great opportunity to discover the rolling hills behind the Sunshine Coast.  Visitors can arm themselves with a Google map to find the scarecrows during September. Visit for more details or find the Mary Valley Scarecrow Festival on Facebook.
