Rathmines Catalina Festival
The Rathmines Catalina Association Festival is a very popular highlight on Lake Macquarie. Proceeds from the Festival are used to help with the restoration of 'Our Girl' Catalina for static display at Rathmines.
The Festival is one of the most popular and successful events in the region, and draws participants and spectators from around Australia and overseas. Attractions include a spectacular airshow, Seaplanes, and lots of family friendly exhibits at the site of the former Rathmines Flying boat Base.
The date of the Festival has been recently changed from October to May, with the next event on 19th May 2019.
