FLOATING LAND OPENING EVENT
Floating Land: point to point marks the 10th iteration of Floating Land, one of Noosa’s most significant and iconic cultural events. From the serene shores of Lake Cootharaba at Boreen Point to the rocky outcrops of Noosa National Park – and several places in between – you are invited to experience thoughtful, challenging and environmentally aware works that engage sensitively with these special and spectacular spaces.
Please join us along with the Gubbi Gubbi Dance Troupe and Floating Land artists for the unveiling of Brook Andrew’s Travelling Colony and an afternoon of storytelling and workshops.
Immerse yourself in free workshops and events, including River Listening from Source to the Sea with artist Leah Barclay, and experience a collection of sculptures that emerge from the water itself. Take your time to walk the Ephemeral Art Trail or search for the Poly Pods scattered along the foreshore. Enjoy the Gubbi Gubbi Dance Troupe performance and Welcome to Country taking place on the corner of the Esplanade and Boreen Point Road.
