About the Lighthouse Festival

The Lighthouse Festival is a celebration of the lifestyle, culture, and opportunity of the Bundaberg region. The festival is based in Burnett Heads, gateway to the southern Great Barrier Reef, with the town’s historic lighthouse forming a symbolic centre-piece for the fun and entertainment.  The Lighthouse Festival seeks to highlight some our great Bundaberg region talent and businesses as well as give locals the chance to experience some things they may not otherwise get the chance to do. Above all, we want to provide a great day out at a reasonable cost.

The Lighthouse Festival

As you all may know my goal is to create awareness with my Community around sensory disorders.
This year I'm on The Light house Festival committee
I am involved in making The Lighthouse Festival a sensory friendly and inclusive event.
My sensory bags will be avaliable for members of the public on a borrow and return system.
Georgina Neish (Access N Equip) will have her Tap Out Marquee avaliable for members of the public who need to relax in a quiet and dark area to calm down.
I have 48 industrial headphones for loan during the fireworks at the festival (24 from me and 24 from Vulcan Fireworks)
Sensory Sally will be making an appearance.
Ralph from chickens to love will be doing selfies with the public (keep an eye out for her time slot )
I want to thank the committee for embracing my ideas and not focusing on my age but me as an individual.
I want families to have a chance to experience more events within our community, this can only happen with understanding.
The lighthouse festival is paving the way for inclusive events ❤ Summer
