Bluewater Festival provides the absolute best waterfront views for the official start of Australia’s second biggest yacht race ‘The Brisbane to Gladstone’. It’s known to be one of Australia’s flagship offshore yacht races and it’s a great spectacle to witness the boats set sail at the iconic Bluewater Festival!
