GALLERY: SUNfest action from Days 1 to 3

NOW into its 22nd year having been initiated in 1998, SUNfest has cured holiday boredom for youth aged 11-17 for many years.

More than 500 tickets were sold during last year's program to a variety of events and activities including art and craft workshops, adrenaline and sports activities and speech and drama workshops.

This year's 11-day program will culminate with the Rio Tinto SUNfest Showcase at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre on Thursday, January 24.

Check out the gallery for days 1-3 of SUNfest 2019.
