The 2011 Noosa Winter Festival is back and the event is bigger than ever, the festival will be held over the 21st and 22nd May 2011.

Noosa put on a show of glorious sunshine and crystal clear water for the inaugural Noosa Winter Festival in 2010.
The Festival saw three existing stand alone and established events – Noosa Blue Water Swim, Century Bike Ride and Noosa Running Festival - merge on one weekend in May 2010 into an ultimate weekend of swimming, biking and running in the ultimate location that Noosa provides.
The design of the 2011 Festival, with its mix of events caters for competitors of all abilities and ages, provides the ultimate sporting weekend winter escape.

There’s plenty to do across the weekend, Saturday includes the Noosa Blue Water Swim and the new Noosa Paddle as well as a full afternoon’s entertainment on Saturday from 12noon at Festival Village, Noosa Lions Park which includes the Hot 91.1 Noosa Sport and Lifestyle Expo to explore.

On Sunday you can then enjoy one of the five options on offer – Noosa Half Marathon (21.1km), Mizuno Noosa 10km run or the Noosa 5km run/walk. If cycling is your thing, then the Noosa 160km Century Cycle or the Noosa 100km offers a safe and stunning journey to enjoy.

Noosa provides the perfect setting and climate for this winter weekend. The Noosa Winter Festival will transform the beach and streets into a vibrant and exciting event, attracting thousands of participants and spectators.

“The festival provides a fantastic weekend option for everyone and a great promotion to energise business in Noosa,” said Mr Meyer, USM EVENTS Chief Executive Officer.
