COUNTRY music lovers from around the nation have gathered at Norma O'Hara-Murphy's property for the Bony Mountain Music Festival.

June Burgess travelled from Tasmania with her husband Drew and their dog Bailey for the event.

"We heard about the music festival from friends who had been before," she said.

"We are loving it."

Mr Burgess said Bailey was enjoying it as well.

"I think he likes it," he said.

"There are plenty of other dogs to keep him company."

Peter Davis and his wife Julie came from Burleigh to see the event for the second time.

"We came last year and loved it," he said.

"We will be here every year."

Performer Keith Jamieson, who is no stranger to the Southern Downs, said it was a good reason to come back.

"I was born in Gundy," he said.

"I also spent some time in Warwick.

"It's a great festival."
