The Redcliffe Kite Club (AUSTRALIA)
The Charter of the Redcliffe Kite Club revolves around encouraging people of any age to experience the Joy, Satisfaction and Relaxation obtained from making and flying kites.
Club Members meet at Pelican Park Hornibrook Esplanade Clontarf on the Redcliffe Peninsula on the first and third Sundays of every month from midday till 4pm.
The club has been invited to attend many festivals around Queensland, namely The Festival of Sails Redcliffe, Australia Day Festivals at Bribie & Redcliffe, The Bilby Festival at Charleville, Beef, Bells & Bottle Tree Festival at Miles, Camel Races at Tara, Millmerran Show and Stamford Races near Hughenden in central Queensland. At these venues the club has flown their large display Kites and conducted Kite Making Workshops.
Club members are a dedicated group of kite enthusiasts who are keen to show and teach their skills to others through our kite flying displays, kite making workshops, kite information talks and demonstrations for Schools, Museums, Libraries and other interest groups throughout South East Queensland.
Members have many years of experience in kite making and kite flying and are keen to help anyone learn the skills of Kite Flying.
The Redcliffe Kite Club Inc. was responsible for organising Redcliffe KiteFest for many years until it was decided to hand the Festival over to the Our Village Foundation in 2013. Redcliffe KiteFest has won the Brisbane Regional Tourism Award 3 years in a row, was placed in the Brisbane Tourism Hall of Fame and won the MBRC Australia Day Award for 2013.
