Booin Gari Festival 2018

Booin Gari Festival 2018

Celebrate unique Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture at Booin Gari (which means 'come this way') and immerse yourself in Australia’s First Nation culture through song and dance, art and craft, stories and yarning, bush tucker tastings and water craft.

Gubbi Gubbi Dance, led by Kabi Kabi custodian Lyndon Davis, host the popular family festival on the banks of the Noosa River.

Headlining this year’s event is rising star Emily Wurramara who will perform music from her new album Milyakburra, while Gubbi Gubbi Dance will lead a Corroboree of traditional dancers. There's also contemporary dance by Soraya.

Also see guitar-tapper Chris Tamwoy with his sister and soul singer Tania Rose, hip-hop-blues artist Fred Leone, and local roots-reggae performer Mufassa and band.

Lyndon will share local creation stories in the Talking Circle with beautiful puppets made by local school students, alongside Drums of Mer from the Torres Strait Islands.

Brent Miller and Melinda Serico will lead activities in the Art Space, and women and girls can learn weaving and make feather jewellery at By the River. On the water is children’s sailing, and delicious indigenous infused cuisine is on offer all day.
