The Noosa Festival of Water has evolved to become an annual showcase of our region's ecological attributes with a primary aim of improving community awareness of how each of us can play a part protecting and preserving our environment in our day to day lives. The Festival provides great opportunities to connect with experts involved with land, water and wildlife management. 

Kids' activities have a Biosphere focus, are free and include a fishing clinic, water sports, wildlife exhibits, art activities and boat trips across Lake Macdonald with an opportunity to learn about the Mary River cod breeding program. 

Each year local artists provide entertainment in the Amphitheatre and attendees can avail themselves of refreshments from food vendors as they walk around the stunning lakeside and Botanic Gardens setting.  This year there will be a chance to win a weekend at Peppers Resort, Noosa courtesy of Noosa Tourism.  A courtesy bus will be running continuously to bring people to the Festival from the parking areas around the Botanic Gardens.

For the early risers there is the Catch and Release Bass Fishing Competition hosted by the Lake Macdonald Fish Stocking group starting at 6.30 am at Mary River Cod Park.   Registration forms are available from the Mary River Catchment Coordinating Committee (MRCCC) and the Noosa Festival of Water websites with some fantastic prizes on offer from Hooked on Angling and Outdoors.
