National winner: Joondalup Festival 2023, Best Cultural Arts or Music Event 2023

National winner 2023: Best Cultural, Arts or Music Event

Art and culture found their way to Perth’s north, with Joondalup Festival 2023 bringing an array of world class shows and experiences to locations throughout the city.

Over 200,000 people flocked to Hillarys Boat Harbour across three weeks in March to see Boola Djarat Wardan, Noongar. The immersive light and water show harnessed digital laser technology to transform the harbour into a kaleidoscope of colour, with a powerful soundscape that honoured and celebrated local Noongar knowledge. Hillarys was also the site of an enormous Spiegeltent, erected to host a monster line-up of comedy, dance, theatre and circus performances.

Other festival events included a community fun day on the banks of Lake Joondalup, an acrobatics display at Mullaloo beach, an indie music concert in Kinross Park, a live Grease experience at Perth’s only drive-in cinema, and an underwater dining experience at WA’s aquarium.
