Saltwater Freshwater Festival
People. Culture. Country.
Be part of something extraordinary at Saltwater Freshwater Festival on Australia Day. 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.
The Festival is back featuring headline act Archie Roach, joined by acclaimed hip hop artist Briggs, rising star Radical Son, Gumbaynggirr soul songstress Emma Donovan and the PutBacks, and the fusion dance band DidJital.
The complete line-up promises an inspiring experience. Enjoy dance, story, language, art, ceremony, children's and youth area, workshops and food from the heart of our communities.
After a massive success in its first year in Coffs Harbour in 2010, and after four years of touring the region, the Festival is back to position itself as one of the East Coast's premier Aboriginal cultural events.
