Tickets still available for some SUNfest activities

SUNfest 2015 has been going strong with youth and children enjoying a range of events from learning guitar techniques to working with green screens.

But the summer fun isn't over yet, and Gladstone Regional Council still has places available in the Singing and Song Writing Workshop on Thursday and Friday, with mentorship on techniques, tips and tricks of the trade from celebrated guitarist Tim Gaze.

Other 2015 SUNfest upcoming activities include the opportunity to discover the region's marine life at the Quoin Island Turtle Rehabilitation Adventure on Friday.

Community Services portfolio spokeswoman Maxine Brushe said the diverse range of activities had made holiday arrangements easier for families who had already started the working year.

"I think young people really love having the opportunity to interact with inspirational teachers. It makes learning new and exciting skills even more enjoyable," Cr Brushe said.

"The Singing and Song Writing Workshop is one of these activities that will leave a lasting impression, as it provides the opportunity to create a performance for the SUNfest Showcase.

Cr Brushe urged parents to get in quick to scoop up remaining tickets, which can be purchased at council administration offices in Boyne/Tannum, Calliope, Miriam Vale, Mount Larcom and Agnes Water.
