Wander around Noosa's gorgeous outdoors at this free art festival.
A great work of art dazzles the eye, buzzes in one's ear and enlivens the senses no matter where it happens to be placed. A truly excellent piece of creativity makes the most of its surroundings — especially if it's located within Noosa's glorious great outdoors.
Art festival Floating Land celebrates the latter, thanks to a program filled with standout works all popping up within the Sunshine Coast spot's standout sites. Wandering around the free festival, which runs until Sunday, October 27, visitors will spy projects everywhere from Lake Cootharaba's shores to Noosa National Park.
Taking place for its tenth time in 2019, highlights include a retrospective dedicated to Sue Coburn, a river listening tour with sound artist Leah Barclay — which combines a stroll along the Noosa Boardwalk with an immersive soundscape — and a closing shindig.
Fancy staying up all night? From 6pm on Sunday, October 27 until 5am on Monday, October 28, pianist Domenico de Clario will pay tribute to the moon's cycles by performing improvised compositions from dusk till dawn, on a lookout off Noosa Boardwalk overhanging Little Cove, while blindfolded.
