Public Kite Flying Zone
Sat + Sun 9am - 4pm

The Public Kite Flying Zone will welcome kite flyers of all ages to come and bejewel the sky above Pelican Park!


Enjoy the two public fly zones within the Festival precinct. Send your favourite kite sky-high and watch as it flutters in the wind.

Kite Making Workshops run from 10am-2pm.

If you want to make the most of the public kite flying zone why not take part in the Basic Kite Flying Workshop where you can come design and make your very own kite for only $7! Once your masterpiece is finished, fly it high in the sky in the same area with the help and guidance of some of the Festivals professional Kite Flyers!

For those kite flyers who want to take their skills to the next level, there is a Premium Kite Making Workshop where you can design and make your very own kite AND partake in a kite flying lesson! Professional kite flyers will explain the ‘tips & tricks’ of kite flying and help you get your kite soaring through the sky. This workshop is approximately 45min – 1 hour in length*. *Costs apply.

*For safety reasons only single lined kites are permitted in the public fly zones. These zones are also designated by crowd control fencing.
