The Whitsunday Reef Festival celebrates the reef and what it means to live in Airlie Beach, the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. The region's favourite festival is a delicious combination of family fun, all-night celebrations, local food and fashion and some of the biggest parties in the north.

The four-day celebration of the reef will feature the spectacular Fireworks on the Foreshore on Friday August 3 complete with live music and djs, carnival rides, food stalls and night markets lining the beautiful Airlie Beach foreshore.

Airlie's Main Street is closed to traffic on the Saturday to host Revvin' the Reef vintage car show, the reef themed Rotary Street Parade and the Whitsunday Magic Mile Run. The Beach Music stage will be pumping the region’s top live music and entertainment on the foreshore throughout the weekend.

Other events include reef art installations and education, Comedy Gala, Telstra Family Fun Day, Wilmar Sugar Wearable Art Parade, helicopter joy rides and cocktails at the "Pop-up" Beach Bar. With something for everyone, Whitsunday Reef Festival is the perfect time to come and enjoy the gorgeous Whitsunday winter.
