The big events on Fraser Coast's sporting calendar

HALF of the year is in the history books but there are plenty of sports events left to excite Fraser Coast fans.

Rodeos, superboats, grand finals, multisport and world class sailing are still to come as 2018 barrels into the second half of the year.

Some of the biggest equestrian events are still to come, as is arguably the biggest event on the calendar, the Queensland Touch Junior State Cup.

This calendar includes major events and grand finals. If we've missed yours, send an email with the date, time and location to
