Now in its 72nd years, the Brisbane to Gladstone is a flagship event on the ocean yacht water racing calendar. The vessels leave from the Queensland Cruising Yacht Club in Sinbad Street Shorncliffe and will sail past the Redcliffe shores on their way up the Queensland coastline.

To coincide with the race, the Redcliffe Festival of Sails at Suttons Beach on 10 April 2020 will be buzzing with a range of family-friendly Easter-based events from 9am til 4pm including:

Three Stages of Entertainment on:
Little Sailors Stage
North Acoustic Stage
South Acoustic Stage

A Pop-Up Ice-cream Fair

Who can say no to ice-cream, especially at the beach? Well, you don't have to. Cool off with a soft, creamy or frozen dessert at the festival's Pop-up Ice-cream Fair.

What's that in the sky? Hop to the beachside, look to the skies and watch the Easter bunny make a daring entrance by boldly sky diving over the crystal waters of Moreton Bay and gliding onto the soft sand to say hello..

At 10 am, this brave bunny will be dropping chocolates for the good boys and girls of Redcliffe.

About Suttons Beach
Those new to Redcliffe, which is situated on the edge of Moreton Bay, might not know that it was Queensland's first settlement. As such, it was considered to be the best location for a new northern penal settlement.

Today, it has grown and changed but retained its picturesque coastal vibe. Without the busyness and big waves of the Gold and Sunshine Coast, Suttons Beach at Redcliffe offers a gentle seaside experience with all the facilities for a fun and safe day by the water.

So when filling your Easter calendar why not get to know Redcliffe a little better. Be sure to add this event to not to miss the Festival of Sails,t his Good Friday. Suttons Beach is situated on Marina Parade Redcliffe.

Redcliffe is located 40 kms from the Brisbane CBD.
