Festival Preparations for the Top of The Spit

On Sunday, 4 December 2022, Doug Jennings Park at the northern end of The Spit, Main Beach, will host Spilt Milk Festival, a large national music, art and food festival.

The festival is expected to attract one of the biggest crowds at this venue and utilise multiple stages to entertain the crowd from 11am to 11pm.

Car parking near the Seaway Promenade and Moondarewa Spit will be unavailable. It’s also likely that Seaworld Drive will be busy with buses and ride share vehicles transporting patrons to the event.

While the boat ramps at Muriel Henchman Park will remain open, access may be limited. Boaties are encouraged to seek alternative ramp facilities.

Event preparations are commencing from 26 November 2022. Festival organisers will be working with local businesses and volunteer organisations to minimise disruptions.

Gold Coast Waterways Authority (GCWA), as the trustee for Doug Jennings Park and the surrounding ring road, grants trustee permits for special events in support of the City’s investment in music, culture, and tourism. GCWA has recently undertaken aeration and fertilisation of Doug Jennings Park to beautify the area and assist with the parkland’s recovery following the event.

GCWA appreciates that the top of The Spit is a much-loved destination by for the local community and tourists, and thanks everyone for their cooperation.
