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 Viper Creek Band with Col Finley and The Dennis Sisters

Come down to Jack Norgate Oval on Friday 25 October, 2019 to Rock The Lighthouse! With an All-Star lineup of modern Country musicians, this is an event that promises to deliver.  Gates open at 5:00pm.  Tickets are just $25.


The Lighthouse Festival is currently accepting vendor applications for the 2019 festival.  Clothing, Crafts, Food Vendors and Organizations looking to promote themselves to the community are all welcome. Have an idea?  Let us know!

Local Performers

Live Performances are what the Lighthouse Festival has become known for.  Bands, Solo Artists, Dance Groups and more have delighted our crowds and the Festival would not happen without them.  Applications for this year’s festival are now closed.



Are you part of an Organization or Community Group?  Would you like to run a display?  Past displays include woodworking, dance, drumming and more.  Register your interest in sharing your passion today!  



Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Lighthouse festival.  Without the gracious donation of time from our great volunteers, our event would not be possible.  Interested in helping out?  We would love to have you on board.
