Float Your Boat

A spectacular two-night parade of illuminated boats

Friday 28 and Saturday 29 June

Cast your eyes to the Lake this month as local boaties dress up their boats with neon lights and take part in a flotilla parade on our beautiful Lake Macquarie.

Themed boats will make their way along the western side of the Lake on Friday night and the eastern side the following evening.

This year you can see the magic from a viewing spot along the shoreline, at a live site event and even from the water.

Float Your Boat is an open challenge where boat owners can win one of three cash prizes, including the People’s Choice Award. Voting for the People’s Choice Award will open on our Facebook page on Monday 1 July.
