Join us for what will be an amazing celebration of culture and community at the ‘Fire on Water Finale’ on Saturday, 14th April. This is the culminating event for the Scenic Rim Regional Council’s Fires on Top of Mountains Festival. This family friendly event is on the last weekend of the Easter School holidays and will be a day of activities, music, food and fun for all the family!

From 10am
The popular Food Truck Revolution will once again visit the Scenic Rim, showcasing local producers in partnership with the Funky Food Truck operators. Ramada Resort Kooralbyn Valley will also be hosting the ‘Big Aussie Barbecue’ and the grounds will be open for picnicking. There will be all day sports activities hosted by the Resort and fun family activities hosted by Kelly Sports as part of Council’s Be Healthy and Active Program. Artisans from across the region will be presenting pop-up studios, with markets, demonstrations and workshops all day. The In Cabaret stage kicks off mid-morning, featuring musicians from across the region; with roving performers mingling with picnic goers in the shady grounds of the Resort.

From 6pm
By night everything will transform. The grounds will take on a magical quality as fires are lit in sculptural fire pits and storytellers weave the introduction to the upcoming fire finale. After a traditional welcome, the combined Scenic Rim Peoples Orchestra from Tamborine Mountain, Beaudesert and Boonah will be joined by Musical Director Andrew Veivers and vocalist Kacey Patrick, along with choirs, schools and community organisations from across the region in the fire procession.

The concluding fire and light spectacle will take place on the billabongs of the Resort. Be prepared to be amazed!

You won’t have to miss any of the action at the Commonwealth Games as the Resort will be screening a live broadcast for the duration of the day.
