Taking place across 4 worlds and hubs, enjoy a weekend of beachside family fun, arts, music, food and discovery at this iconic event. With the theme of BELONGING central to the 2021 Festival, there's a strong focus on workshops and activities that you can really get involved in, from fishing lessons with the Fishing School and making dumplings with dumpling MasterChef Brendan Pang, to extracting native bush medicine with the Noongar Bush Pharmacy, jewellery making with the Beaded Jewellery Workshop and beyond. This event promotes the Live_Lighter message that aims to encourage Australian adults to lead healthier lifestyles and to make changes to what they eat and drink, and to be more active!
There is a $500 prize up for grabs with The Great Cake-Off - an intergenerational, CWA inspired, good ol' fashioned Cooking Comp where taste trumps all. Then there's parkour, camel rides on the beach, massage, and this is only just scratching the surface. From Yarn Storming where you'll learn binding and wrapping techniques, and help create a beautiful Balga made from simple fibres to Bindi Bindi Dreaming X Tucker Bush presented by Alcoa to learn the extensive knowledge of the unique Aboriginal culture of Perth, the local environment and the numerous bush tucker species in the area, there are more exciting components to this event than you could comprehend! Don't miss it!
