Between the Tides is set along the picturesque coastline on Yuwibara Country in Cape Hillsborough, a mere 40 minutes north of Mackay. This world-first concert series spans two enchanting evenings, promising an intimate performance by Christine Anu on Saturday evening, followed by Josh Pyke on Sunday evening, with each artist supported by Tia Gostelow.

Taking place between two tidal movements, this unique, special event welcomes locals and travellers to Yuwi Nation to experience these music legends perform amidst the pristine beauty of this remote coastal setting. Together, we’ll create unforgettable memories, leaving nothing but our footprints behind.

Culturally guided by custodians of the Yuwibara Nation, this gathering is held in nature’s time. Witness the many expressions of country, some ancient, some contemporary, as you enjoy the sounds and sights created by artists who honour the ever changing, ever evolving landscape.

Locally crafted food and beverage, arts and crafts are available from the Gathering Space in the parklands. At dusk, the Yuwibara hosts will lead visitors onto the delicate sands where the concert will unfold.

QMF respectfully acknowledges the Yuwibara Peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land, waters and skies where Between the Tides unfolds. We extend our respects for their enduring connection to the remarkable terrain, where creative works take place, performances resonate, and celebrations come to life. We pay our respects to Elders past and present, and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders of all communities who also work and live on this land. We recognise the importance of First Nations leadership and collaboration, and QMF commits to walking together on a journey of shared learning and culture.
