People. Culture. Country.
Be part of something extraordinary at Saltwater Freshwater Festival on Australia Day. Honour, share and celebrate in the spirit of country where our rivers meet the sea. Experience living Aboriginal culture on the Mid North Coast, home to the nations of the Gumbaynggirr, Biripi, Dunghutti and Worimi people.
Saltwater Freshwater Festival is back featuring acclaimed Aboriginal singer-songwriter Archie Roach and some of our best national Aboriginal artists. Enjoy dance, story, crafts, language, art, ceremony, children’s and youth area, workshops, yarn space and food from the heart of our saltwater freshwater communities.
The festival was a massive success in its first year in Coffs Harbour in 2010, and after four years of touring the region, we are now back in Coffs to celebrate as one of the East Coast’s premier Aboriginal cultural events.
Be A Volunteer
Interested in being a part of the Saltwater Freshwater Festival team?
We need volunteers to assist in the lead up to the festival, on the day and in the week after. The festival would not exist without support from our invaluable volunteers. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, develop skills, gain experience, learn more about culture and give back to your community.
Be A Stallholder
Applications are now open for stalls at the 2015 Festival in Coffs Harbour. We are looking to provide our audience with an amazing selection of cuisines and showcase culturally inspired Aboriginal arts and crafts to the wider community. We provide a platform for local stallholders to have a place where they can showcase their products with pride and professionalism.
