Treat your tastebuds

HAVE you ever dreamt of travelling the world, but just don’t have the money?

What about dining on the other side of the planet snacking on foreign delicacies.

Gladstone locals need to look no more – this Sunday is the Gladstone Multicultural festival.

This year will mark its 10th anniversary and is set to attract more than 6000 to the Marina.

People from all over the world live in our own backyard and this is the perfect time to celebrate their culture and experience everything the vast world has to offer without leaving Gladstone.

A lot of hard work and dedication is put into the festival, and run by volunteers from the Gladstone Multicultural Association they do a great job of covering a large amount of cultures and people in a short amount of time.

President Peter O’Dwyer said the festival was always a success and that it would be difficult to make it any better than it already has been.

There will be something for everyone with a full day’s itinerary planned.

Everything from food and market stalls, rides and slides for the kids, and even camels.

The event will be spread out across the Gladstone Marina and stage area and there will be live entertainment to be enjoyed throughout the day.

So for everything unique, special and great about culture in the Gladstone Region head down to Bryan Jordan Drive, Marina Parklands this Sunday from 10am to 3pm.
