That is correct – the 2019 Festival of the Wind
will be held on the 14th April
The Festival of the Wind at Emu Park is one of the most popular family kite festival in Australia. It is held around Easter when the winds are favourable and the large tides with the full moon lay bare large stretches of sand allowing room for both kite flying and beach activities. The Festival began in 1999 and now attracts internationally known kite designers from South Australia, Tasmania, New South Wales and the Gold Coast. These expert kite flyers are supported by enthusiastic members of the Queensland Kite Flyers society from Brisbane, Bundaberg, Gladstone and Rockhampton.
Literally hundreds of kites launched from Fisherman’s Beach fill the sky to provide a thrilling spectacle; parents and grandparents are transported back to memories of childhood, flying kites when technology was simpler.
