CELEBRATING its 10th year, the annual Whitsunday Reef Festival again attracted thousands of people.

Organisers have estimated there were more people at this year’s event than the previous two festivals – with some estimates as high as 12,000 people.

Volunteer Festival Chairperson Jeff Aquilina was thrilled at the success.

“So many people have said to myself and the committee that it was the ‘best festival ever’ and it has certainly been the highest attendance at the festival for a number of years,” Mr Aquilina said.
