Information about the Cairns Eclipse Festival

Whilst we are still some four years away, preparations are well under way for this festival.
A number of promoters have expressed interest in facilitating this event, and we trust that this festival will eventuate as a collaboration of all participants. As and when details come to hand we will keep you posted.
This festival has the potential to be a grand coming-together of crews and individuals from all around Australia and the world.  We encourage anyone interested to join the site, get on the forums and get involved! The format is open, feel free to submit a proposal and stimulate action on your ideas.

Surrounding Events

The trajectory of the eclipse will cross Far North Queensland, the Gulf of Carpentaria and then through The Northern Teritory. This is a great opportunity to promote events happening in and around the Cairns region.

The summer of 2012 will kick off in Cairns and follow through with a series of amazing festivals down the east coast. More details to come 🙂 For now, check out info on the 2008-2009 season of festivus in australis..
