Great Australian Bites - Townsville

Strand Park and Foreshore, North Ward

12 pm – 4 pm, Saturday 26 January 2019

For the first time, Townsville joined the Great Australian Bites experience, making the most of the summer atmosphere on Saturday 26 January at Strand Park and Foreshore.

Locals enjoyed delectable tasting plates from pop-up food stalls and took part in an array of fun family friendly activities including beach cricket, kite making workshops and a lamington eating competition. Patrons were also able to scale the rock climbing wall and ride a mechanical surfboard while those feeling the heat cooled off on the waterslide.

Providing an ideal summer soundtrack, home-grown talents Kim Hunter, Sunday Blue, Tim Griffin, Tendermen and The Money took to the stage to entertain and delight revellers.

Great Australian Bites in Townsville was presented by the Queensland Government in partnership with Townsville City Council and the National Australia Day Council and proudly supported by 102.3 Triple M.
