Noosa will celebrate Australia Day on Saturday 26 January at a festival on the banks of the Noosa River with a big breakfast and live music, roving entertainment and kids’ activities all day.

Festival organiser Jacqui Nichols said entry to the festival, from 7am to 5pm, is free and funds raised will support local charities United Synergies, Katie Rose Cottage and St Vincent de Paul.

“We’ll have a knockout line-up for everyone so bring the family, grab your friends and come along to the Noosa Australia Day Festival,” Jacqui said. “We’re bringing Lions Park in Noosaville to life with Cheap Fakes headlining great Aussie talent on the main stage, and plenty of kids’ fun, amusement rides and fabulous food stalls in the park all day.

“We also have comedians, a magician, pony rides, classic cars, baby wallabies and plenty more fun.”

The festival starts with the Rotary Big Breakfast from 7am to 10am with music from Harii Bandhu. The live music and family fun continues from 10am on the main stage with Nickleby the magician, and music from Tribal Groove, Andrea Kirwin Band, David Flower Band, Living in the ’70s, The Lyrical and Cheap Fakes.

There’s also entertainment from comedian Cherry Atrick; a display of Noosa classic cars; roaming entertainment from Brazilian dancers, musical comedy, balloon artists and a stilt walker; and other kids’ activities including pony rides, a giant slide, rock wall climbing, rides, Luke’s reptile kingdom, a petting zoo, Koala Crusaders, baby wallabies and face painting.

“With first-class live music, kids’ fun, amusement rides and fabulous food all day on the banks of the stunning Noosa River – it can’t get much better,” Jacqui said. 

The festival, in its fourth year, is organised by volunteers from Tewantin Noosa Lions Club and the Rotary Club of Noosa Heads.

Jacqui said the event has grown from about 1200 people attending in the first year, to more than 8500 people in 2018.

“Last year they came in boats, in cars and on foot – they ate, swam, danced and had a fantastic time,” Jacqui said. “So we invite the Noosa community and visitors to come and join us again for some Australia Day fun by the Noosa River.

“This year’s festival will support three very worthy local charities and the work they do in our community – United Synergies suicide prevention, Katie Rose Cottage palliative care and our local St Vincent de Paul.”

Noosaville Lions Park is next to the Noosa Yacht & Rowing Club. Parking is available in nearby Chaplin Park (off Mill St), or catch a free Noosa Holiday Bus (Route 626 or 627), or catch a Noosa Ferry (Noosa Yacht & Rowing Club stop).
