From the 15th to 24th of June, the northern costal town of Noosa will come alive with arts, literature, food and fun celebrations over a 10 day program. Truly much more than one long weekend, with the relevance being that this festival starts on Friday, the beginning of a weekend and then continuing on for several more days for you to enjoy.
