6pm - 8pm, Friday, 17 June


Two hours of first class free entertainment will see the commencement of this year's Noosa Longweekend on Main Beach Noosa from 6pm to 8pm on Friday, 17 June.

The Noosa Longweekend in 2005 will include nearly 70 events with over 100 performers.

"The free QANTAS Opening Celebration on the Beach will give a little taste of what's to come over the ten day Noosa Longweekend," said Kristin Williamson, president of the Noosa Longweekend. Kristin's playwright husband, David Williamson is the event's Patron.

Locals and visitors to Noosa are encouraged to bring picnic baskets and blankets and relax under the stars.

One of the best known female performers on Australian radio and television, Wendy Harmer, will be MC for a tremendous schedule including:

º Australia's Leading Lady of Musical Theatre, Marina Prior, will entrance us with a few well-loved songs

º Michael Leunig will give us a snapshot of why so many wanted him back to the Noosa Longweekend this year, with his brilliant work as an artist and social commentator

º Brett Dean, David Berlin, Benjamin Martin, Miki Tsunoda will perform magical Mozart as a taste of their special talents as leading Australian classical musicians

º Rory Williamson and Katrina Milosevic will perform a preview from David Williamson's play for this year's Noosa Longweekend, "Operator", with an intro from David

º And with breathtaking fireworks over our own Noosa beach, colourful dancers and Australia's Kings of Classic Rock and Roll the sensational "Deltones" why wouldn't we break last year's audience total!
