Eco Fiesta 2022


This year’s Eco Fiesta will take place on 4 and 5 June 2022 at Anderson Gardens and will focus on pollinators and their importance within our community.

Discover how you can live a sustainable and more eco-friendly lifestyle at this FREE community event.

The weekend will include:

  • guest speakers
  • an education hub with free workshops
  • live entertainment
  • delicious line-up of food trucks
  • fun activities for the kids
  • great range of market and exhibit stalls
  • free sprinkler swap (must bring old sprinkler to swap, one per household)

The event will also celebrate it’s 30-year anniversary and have a particular focus on bees and will include a world record attempt of the Waggle Dance. This dance is based on Honeybees and the way they communicate in a dance language to point out the location of resources that keep the hive alive.

There is something for the whole family, so make sure you get involved!


Townsville City Council in conjunction with Townsville Beekeepers Association invites you to submit an entry into The Buzz - Eco Fiesta Video Competition.

The competition will be a major part of the Eco Fiesta 30th birthday celebrations running from 4 – 5 June 2022 and there are $9,000 worth of prizes to be won!

Throughout this joint venture Council aims to explore the importance of pollinators and provide awareness around how residents can take real bee-friendly action in their community.


Tell us about the birds and the bees, the bats, flowers or the trees. Tell us about your environment! It’s as easy as filming in your backyard on your phone.

Create a 3-minute short film about the impact pollinators (bees, bats, possums, insects, etc) and healthy soil have on our ecosystem.

Pollinators and healthy soil must be the focal point of the entry and you must title your video ‘The Buzz’.

The competition is open to everyone and entries are welcome from individuals and groups.

The top entries will then be showcased at Eco Fiesta 2022.


  • 1st place - $5,000
  • 2nd place - $3,000
  • 3rd place - $1,000

Submissions close 20 May 2022 and winners will be presented at Eco Fiesta 2022.
