Event description

Horizon Festival’s most celebrated and loved event Dawn Awakening returns in 2023.

Gather with us along the banks of Stumers Creek in Coolum as the first light rises and the voices of First Peoples call in a new energy for these times.

Together we will journey through story, dance, song, visual art projections, spoken word and fire installations, to reflect, strengthen and testify a flourishing connection to country, culture and each other.
