Action-packed Noosa festivals & Events

Noosa Riverfest Regatta

May. For more information, visit

Part of the fantastic Mayfiesta is the Noosa Riverfest Regatta, three full days of fishing, sailing, rowing and family entertainment held in May each year at Gympie Terrace, Noosaville, Australia.

Those with a passion for fishing can take part in a number of competitions to catch the largest Sunshine Coast fish while the kids can book into a fishing clinic to learn from the masters how it is done.  There are bands, stalls and activities for the whole family to enjoy during the festival at Noosa on the Sunshine Coast.

The Noosa River Festival holds a number of Noosa regattas over the course of the festival. Rowing enthusiasts have their own regattas on the Noosa River to compete in. The best of the rowing eights compete against the Noosa ferry in the great ferry race (so far it is evenly matched between the rowers and the ferry).

During the festival the car park of the Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club in Noosaville becomes a boat show – with the latest and greatest in marine tinnies and boats on display for purchase. You can also sit on the deck at the club and enjoy the wonderful Noosa weather with a cool drink to watch all the on-water action.

Check out some of the other Noosa events during the Mayfiesta like the Celebration of Australian Food and Wine in Noosa Queensland, the Global Food Festival in Noosaville or the Eumundi Long Table Dinner.  These events are located in different towns across the Sunshine Coast map landscape.

Accommodation for the Noosa Riverfest Regatta is available in one of the many resorts, Noosa hotels or other Sunshine Coast holiday accommodation options near Noosaville.
