Learn about aquatic creatures…

…while enjoying lakeside adventures, entertainment and fun

Noosa is proud to announce its 12th annual Festival of Water, taking place the last Sunday in June, at the Noosa Botanic Gardens. Every year, this festival is devoted to raising community awareness of the benefits of conserving and protecting water resources and aquatic biodiversity, all while promoting sustainable land management in the Lake Macdonald sub-catchment. Come and enjoy this free family event that will provide an inside look at displays and information provided by the leading environmental conservation groups. Enjoy and learn about local Noosa plants, animals and all that the Noosa region.

This year’s festival promises excitement, entertainment and a chance for learning. The Grecian-style amphitheatre, overlooking Lake Macdonald, offers an eventful program that allows guests to wander the gardens, or the opportunity to dine and enjoy select musical talents from all over local Noosa. Guests and travellers alike are invited to take full advantage of everything this event has to offer such as snake and reptile shows, tours of the Noosa water treatment plan, free kids’ fishing clinic with experts from the Lake Borumba Fish Stocking Group, free boat trips across Lake Macdonald to Mary River Cod park and Gerry Cook Hatchery, an exotic Geckoes Wildlife native animals show, free stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking, face painting and even a jumping castle. Noosa residents can collect two free trees from Noosa Landcare, and this year’s festival is offering free dam, creek or bore water testing with the Mary River Catchment Coordinating Committee.
