The Fraser Coast Regional Council have partnered with Paddle Queensland to bring their participation program PaddleFest to the region for the next three years.
The inaugural Fraser Coast PaddleFest will be held at the Hervey Bay Surf Life Saving Club over the 11th and 12thof September and showcase the stunning waters of Hervey Bay to the greater Fraser Coast communities.
PaddleFest is a truly unique event focused on the mental and physical benefits paddling provides the community. Saturday is a community day focused on providing participants the opportunity to experience the feeling of a range of paddle craft while enjoying the stunning waters of Torquay.
Sunday offers intermediate and advanced paddlers from near and far the opportunity to compete in the inaugural Fraser Coast 17.5 ocean race where paddlers will complete three-laps of a 5.8 km course from Torquay to Scarness. For our beginner paddlers, the Fraser Coast 5.8 ocean race is also available to get your paddle wet and experience the thrills of competition.
