The Festival of the Winds is Australia’s largest flying kite festival! Each year the festival is hosted at Bondi Beach and it will be on again this year in September.
During the Festival of the Winds the skies are filled with brilliant and bright kites of all shapes and sizes imaginable.
During the festival kites are flown by professional kite flyers, some of which are local and some who have traveled internationally for this exciting event. At the festival you will find all different types of kites, all beautiful and unique and some that have been hand crafted especially for the event. Visitors may also like to attend a demonstration on how to make their own creative kite.
The Festival of the Winds is one of the most colourful events in Sydney and is a fantastic way to experience the beach at Bondi. The picturesque views of sea and sand are further complimented by the site of hundreds of vibrant kites.
Throughout the festival there are also a variety of events aside from kite flying. There are attractions for everyone to enjoy. Experience the children’s activities, face painting and roaming entertainment. There is also an all day long entertainment program on the main stage which makes the Festival of the Winds one of Sydney’s most exciting annual events.
