Welcome to NOOSA alive!, a 10 day festival of theatre, literature, music, dance, film, visual arts, cuisine and barrier-breaking forums – in one of Australia’s most enviable destinations: Noosa Heads, Queensland.

NOOSA alive! respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians, the Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi peoples, as the original storytellers, artists and performers of the country where we work, live and play.
