About Brisbane Kite Festival  -  POSTPONED TO 21 August

The annual Brisbane Kite Festival will be a fantastic day for the whole family with spectacular, gorgeous kites in the sky and a sea of colour highlighting beautifully crafted masterpieces. Don’t look up too long or you’ll miss the action on the ground: food and drink stalls, Carina Men's Shed, kite entertainment and plenty of space to fly your own kite, or purchase one on the day.

Free entry!

This event is organised by the Rotary Club of Balmoral, and Rotary Club of Carindale

with special assistance from Kites Queensland

and proudly supported by Brisbane City Council.

Family Fun

Bring the whole family along to enjoy a day of fun and kite flying. A range of child-friendly activities will include face painting, rides and of course flying a kite. Hot food and cold drinks will be available until sold out, or bring along a picnic/rug/chairs. See below for a full list of food stalls.


Kites

There will be a designated area for the public to fly their kites, alongside professional kite flyers. Bring along your own masterpiece, or purchase one on the day. If you need help to get your kite airborne, don’t panic – our professional kite flyers will be happy to help you!


Pets

While the organising Rotary clubs have booked the park with Brisbane City Council for use during the Kite Festival, the council by-laws regarding dogs in public places remain unchanged:

Pets must be supervised and on a leash at all times.

Please consider carefully whether your beloved pet will be comfortable among crowds.

  • Cannon Hill Bus Station       or
  • Murrarie train station on the Cleveland Line
  • Both are an easy 5-10 minute walk along flat well-signed paths
