    Great Barrier Reef Festival

    The Great Barrier Reef Festival is just getting bigger and better every year and this year will be no exception – with its 21st birthday in 2021 we have reason for a BIG celebration, don’t forget to SAVE THE DATE and join us !

    The heart of the festival is located in the vibrant coastal town of Airlie Beach, it is a celebration of the Whitsundays’ lifestyle and the communities at the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. The festival spreads over four days annually over the first weekend in August and is a combination of family fun, community events, live music, food, fireworks and is one of the biggest parties in the north.

    The festival is not only about fun but education around the environment and our beloved Great Barrier Reef. The Family Fun Day, which focuses on the younger kids is a great combination of both with circus performers, face painting, and games (with awesome prizes) while including this focus within the fun aspects.
