The Lighthouse Festival

Burnett Heads, Queensland


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.


On the Lighthouse Hotel Stage

Brewn is a dynamic Australian act delivering their own brand of country rock. Prepare for a rockin’ great time when the country hits the coast with a lively fusion of Australian rock and country.
