It’s wrapping up with a grand finale line-up of DJs and performance talent, and they can’t wait!

Queensland Police say that detectives have charged two men after they allegedly attempted to steal two motorbikes from a property in Wieambilla, which is the subject of a crime scene.

They are due to appear in the Chinchilla Magistrates Court on February 2.
