Organised by the Sandgate & Districts Chamber of Commerce, the famous Bluewater Festival at Shorncliffe Pier showcases the beauty and attractions of the northern Bayside and this year the festival which will be celebrating 21 years! This year’s festival will be one full day jam packed with entertainment, fun and celebrations for the whole family on Good Friday.The Bluewater Festival attracts thousands of visitors to the Shorncliffe Pier and Lower Moora Park. On Good Friday of each year the Bluewater Festival provides an opportunity for people both inside and outside of the local area to take advantage of the best waterfront views for the start of Australia’s second biggest Yacht Race ‘The Brisbane to Gladstone’. The Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race has been held annually at Easter since 1949.
What’s on the program?
Set on the waterfront of the gorgeous Moora Park, the Bluewater Festival not only offers uninterrupted views to the start of the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, it also has colourful market stalls, carnival rides, gourmet food vendors and a great line-up of free entertainment! The Festival is the perfect way for family and friends to enjoy Good Friday each Easter.
One of the best things about the Bluewater Festival is how easily it can be accessed! Festival Goers can access the Festival via Public Transport as the Brisbane City Council buses run regularly and the Queensland Rail trains run regularly to and from Sandgate and Shorncliffe stations. The Shorncliffe and Sandgate stations are merely a relaxing stroll away from the waterfront which is where you will find the excitement of the festivities!
