Bluewater Festival Shorncliffe
Organised by the Sandgate Bayside Chamber of Commerce, the famous Bluewater Festival held at Shorncliffe Pier is one not to be missed and a memorable day out with family and friends.
The Bluewater Festival is held on the scenic foreshore at Shorncliffe in conjunction with the annual Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race. It’s a perfect vantage point to watch the start of this iconic race plus an opportunity to see the Multihull Yacht race start up close off the Pier.
Head to Lower Moora Park, Shorncliffe for FREE entry to the food festival, markets, entertainment throughout the day including live bands, kids’ activities, rides, and fireworks in the evening.

Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race

Bluewater Festival at Shorncliffe provides the absolute best waterfront views for the official start of Australia’s second biggest yacht race ‘73rd Brisbane to Gladstone’. It’s known to be one of Australia’s flagship offshore yacht races and has been held annually over Easter since 1949.

The Multihull Yachts start the race just off the Shorncliffe Pier – it’s an amazing experience to see the fire-cannon start and watch these magnificent boats in action.
