Brisbane Kite Festival!

The Brisbane Kite Festival is a celebration of all things that fly with a dazzling array of the most breathtaking kites you’ve ever seen take to Brisbane skies. During the event you can also enjoy:

  • Food stalls
  • Rides
  • Market stalls
  • Kite workshops
  • LIVE entertainment

Can anyone fly a kite?

There will be professional kite fliers (try saying that three times fast) who will have a demarcated area for kite flying. There is also public space available for amateurs to get their kites up and about. Bring your own kite or purchase one from the festival!

We recommend packing a picnic blanket on the day so you can sit back and take it all in. As this is a public space, dogs are permitted at the Brisbane Kite Festival but they must be leashed and on their best behaviour at all times.

If the weather is poor on the day, the festival will be cancelled. However, that’s pretty unlikely. May is fabulous kite flying weather!

How do we get to the Brisbane Kite Festival?

There are a number of public transport options, the best bets being nearby Murrarie train station (Cleveland line) or buses that go to Cannon Hill Kmart Plaza. Both of these spots are about a 10 minute walk from the Murrarie Recreation Grounds where the festival will be being held. 

If driving is more your thing, we can confirm FREE car parking on site is available.

What does it cost?

The Brisbane Kite Festival costs a gold coin donation. The proceeds from entry fees and the market stalls go to the Rotary Clubs of Port of Brisbane, Carindale, and Balmoral.

Let’s go fly a kite!
