A brand new festival is being developed to mark the beginning of the turtle season. Milbi Festival launched March 2019 with the signing of a MOU between Bundaberg Regional Council, Bundaberg Tourism and Gidarjil Development Corporation.
The festival will celebrate our region’s iconic turtle encounters, connecting to salt water and fresh water country and encompassing the broader and complimentary themes of environmental care, connection to the Southern Great Barrier Reef, water catchments and local storytelling, making the festival unique to this region.
Through an arts and culture framework, the festival will provide a range of opportunities for artists, arts and community organisations to get involved.
Turtles, arts, culture and Indigenous heritage are the foundation pillars for the festival that will celebrate the unique identity, spirit and livability of the Bundaberg Region.
From Gin Gin to Childers through to Bundaberg and our regional ocean shores, all areas of the region will be activated with the delivery of unique events, workshops, exhibitions, film screenings and performances .
The program will launch the first week of August 2019 and full details of venues and activations will be detailed here and across all stakeholder channels.
