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.

Over 100 market stalls
Wander through the market stalls and find a fine selection of handmade goods, jewellery, gifts, homewares and more. Why not take home a memento home of your day at the festival.

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.
