The Noosa Festival of Water offers a range of activities for kids including the fishing clinic where junior anglers can learn from the experts from the Lake Borumba Fish Stocking Group. Budding artists can create their own artwork featuring some of the special fauna which inhabit the Noosa Biosphere. Kids will also love the native animal and snake and reptile displays.  There is also free face painting and a jumping castle for the little ones.

Older kids and adults can try out stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking on Lake Macdonald, just bring your boardies and towel!

The amphitheatre will showcase some incredible local talent including Lyndon Davis and the Gubbi Gubbi Dancers, music from up and coming young multi instrumentalists Phenix, the amazing sounds of the Moonsets complete with electric harp and the earthy soul blend of Andrea Kirwin.   Festival favourite, Martin Fingland and his native animals will round off the program.

A free boat trip will take people across the Lake to the Gerry Cook Hatchery where the breeding program for the endangered Mary River Cod will be on display.   A tour of the Noosa Water Treatment Plant will originate from Mary River Cod Park which can also be accessed by vehicle from Collwood Road.
