FIERCE rivalry will come head to head again as the Gladstone Harbour Festival prepares for the annual raft race.

Organisers are asking for all entries to be in as soon as possible - it doesn't matter if you're still building your raft, as long as the entries are in.

The NRG Great Raft Race will see Auckland Creek lined with a flurry of spectators, colourful rafts and their crazy crews.

It doesn't matter if you win or lose, sink or swim… literally. Everyone is capable of winning something; it's all part of the fun.

There's more than $6000 in cash prizes up for grabs this year, for a range of categories.

Your crew could be lucky enough to sail away with one of the many treasures on offer on the day - Good Friday, April 18.
