Held around the end of October, Beltane in Australia signifies one of the eight Pagan Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year, which marks the bringing of a new season and the arrival of summer. Taking after the Gaelic festival celebrated in Ireland and Scotland, Beltane has its roots in Irish mythology and Pagan traditions, and welcomes the start of summer each year with fire, dancing, and the togetherness of community. Celebrate it this November near our Sunshine Coast holiday apartments at Seachange Coolum! Get in the spirit for summer at this year’s Beltane Fire Festival, which will take place at the Gympie Showgrounds.

This exciting day of festivities invites all to experience what Beltane is all about, featuring its own Beltane Fire Ceremony, Burning Man effigy, Fire Twirling, Maypole dancing, and a big Community Feast for foodies. Special guest speakers will be in attendance, plus plenty of live music and entertainment performances all day. Kids can enjoy their own fun at the kids’ zone as well as a number of educational workshops, providing heaps of fun for all ages and backgrounds.
