Every March, Noosa brings the Queens back to Queens-land and joins in the spirit of Mardi Gras with the Noosa Rainbow River Festival.
Partygoers celebrate with a weekend of festivities, kicking off with welcome cocktails by the river followed by Melony's Drag Bingo on Noosa's famous Gympie Terrace. Saturday features Noosa’s Mardi Gras Party, with a range of wonderful acts. Wrapping up on Sunday with the highlight of the weekend, the family-friendly River Parade and picnic, led by the fabulous Noosa Catalina.
Festival organiser Kirsty Patten:
“The Festival has something for everyone – from a family-friendly, BYO riverside picnic, through to a dance party with drag performances”.
“We invite our visitors and the whole Noosa community to join us on the Noosa River for the famous annual River Parade, hire a boat, bring your own or join the official Rainbow Party boat and party in the sun on a two-hour adventure up and down the Noosa River and canals”.
“Be flirty, be daring and definitely be fabulous!”
