The Cooloola Coast is offering family friendly options to bring in the New Year as well as parties for the adults.
Rainbow Beach Holiday Program
Enjoy a free BBQ and entertainment for kids and families until 9 pm at the Community Hall. In previous years, they have hands on fun activities – structured for different ages. Face painting, craft and even the chase of the lolly man. Kids always leave with precious creations of jewellery, art and a full belly.
Tin Can Bay Foreshore Carnival
If you are looking for fireworks, head over to Tin Can Bay between December 29 -31.
The Tin Can Bay Chamber of Commerce & Tourism is providing three days of family fun and entertainment for the fifth year. Why not bring a rug or chair and enjoy this beautiful outlook across the waterways of Tin Can Bay?
From 4.00pm until 9.00pm you can visit to the Foreshore Parkland, near the Library. There will be all the usual rides including the ever popular dodgem cars and rides for the tiny tots, food and novelty items.
