Float Your Boat is an open competition for boat owners to dress their boats with lights and take part in a flotilla parade for cash prizes.

Friday 24 June 2022 - Marmong Point Marina to Toronto, Coal Point and Wangi Wangi (western side of Lake Macquarie). The Royal Motor Yacht Club Toronto and surrounding area will include live music, roaming illuminated performances, entertainment, children's activities and food trucks from 5-9.30pm.

Saturday 25 June 2022 - Marmong Point Marina to Warners Bay, Eleebana, Valentine and Belmont (eastern side of Lake Macquarie). The Warners Bay foreshore will include live music, roaming illuminated performances, entertainment, children's activities and food trucks from 5-9.30pm.

Held on our beautiful Lake Macquarie, spectators will line the shores to watch boats in a rainbow of colour cruise past before casting their vote for the Newcastle Permanent People's Choice Award.

There are many ways you can enjoy the magic of Float Your Boat. Here’s a few ideas:

  • There is over 20km of front row seats for you and your family to get the perfect view of the flotilla. Pack some camp chairs and a picnic to enjoy the show, or watch your very own drive-in illumination show from the comfort of your car.
  • Visit one of the live sites at Royal Motor Yacht Club Toronto and surrounding area (Friday night) and Warners Bay foreshore (Saturday night).
  • For a proper night out, why not support our local businesses and reserve your table at your favourite restaurant around the lake.
  • If you have a view from your place, host a BBQ with family and friends. Show your support to our boaties with the traditional “torch flash-back at ya” and let the evening sky light up!

This event is part of the Lake Macquaire Dobell Festival. For a full list of festival event please visit Lake Macquarie Dobell Festival 2022
