Great Barrier Reef Festival illuminating the foreshore
The Coral Sea Marina Resort are again partnering with the Great Barrier Reef Festival to bring this popular family event to the Foreshore.
As it departs from the Garden Bar, the Coral Sea Marina Resort Lantern Parade will bring a sea of light along the Bicentennial Boardwalk, past Sorrento’s Restaurant and Bar and down onto the foreshore in time for the fireworks by the Foreshore to burst into action overhead.
Sorrento Restaurant and Bar is a perfect spot to cheer on the Parade if you are not joining in and a great viewing spot for the fireworks if you are not inclined to join the hustle and bustle on the foreshore.
Two lantern-making workshops will be held prior to the event , hosted by the festival and marina teams. Adults and kids can join in and make their own Lanterns on:
- 23 July & 24 July – at Coral Sea Marina
- 21 July – at Cannonvale State School Fete
If you don’t have the time or the creativity to create your own – there will be ready-made lanterns available for purchase on the night.
