Noosa Festival of Water

Cooroy, Noosa Area

The Noosa Festival of Water takes place on the last Sunday in June each year at the Noosa Botanic Gardens on Lake Macdonald in Cooroy, it's a free family event to improve community awareness of some of the special features of the Noosa region which make it such a great place to live.

Everyone is invited to come along to listen to music in the Grecian style Amphitheatre overlooking the Lake, wander the gardens taking in community displays, enjoy the food and join in activities for all interests and age groups while learning more about this beautiful region.

The Amphitheatre will showcase some incredible local talent including Lyndon Davis and the Gubbi Gubbi Dancers and music from up and coming young multi instrumentalists Phenix and some jazz inspired soul from Sommer Rd. Festival favourite, Martin Fingland and his native animals will round off the program.

A free boat trip will take people across the Lake to the Gerry Cook Hatchery where the breeding program for the endangered Mary River Cod will be on display. A tour of the Noosa Water Treatment Plant will also originate from Mary River Cod Park.
