8 April 2018 -
The Festival of the Wind at Emu Park is one of the most popular family kite festival in Australia. It is held around Easter when the winds are favourable and the large tides with the full moon lay bare large stretches of sand allowing room for both kite flying and beach activities. The Festival began in 1999 and now attracts internationally known kite designers from all over Australia. These expert kite flyers are supported by enthusiastic members of the Queensland Kite Flyers society from Brisbane, Bundaberg, Gladstone and Rockhampton.
Children from toddlers up can learn to assemble and decorate their own kites with the assistance of Lion club volunteers before going down to the beach to join the fun of launching their new kites.
The Festival is free to attend and it is an alcohol free day for the whole community. On the day there will be plenty of beach games, competitions, market stalls, rides and entertainment followed by fireworks.
We invite you to make it a holiday break for the whole family and bring along a kite or two and add to the fun and beach games and competitions of our free family kite flying day on Fisherman’s’ Beach.
