Kicking goals at Cooroy Fusion Festival

COOROY Fusion Festival attracts more than 10,000 people each year and the key to its winning formula is that the festival taps into what is great about the Noosa Hinterland while also constantly reinventing itself.

This year's festival on Saturday, May 13 won't be any different with a very exciting addition to the program.

Thanks to the sponsorship of Raine & Horne Noosa Hinterland, dart ball will be coming to the Sunshine Coast for the first time.

A brand new hybrid sport game, dart ball is the newest and most creative festival fun to hit Australia.

A combination of darts and soccer, rugby or tennis, the game is played on an oversized portable dart board where players use a velcro ball to kick, throw or hit on to the dart board to score points.

"We always like to add something new to the program that hasn't been seen before,” Cooroy Fusion Festival event organiser Chris Bell said.

"This year with dart ball we think we've hit it out of the park. It should be a load of fun and there will also be the chance to win some prizes.”

Michael Robinson, of Raine & Horne Noosa Hinterland said the Cooroy Fusion Festival was "such a great community festival, we were eager to be the sponsor of the exciting new dart ball attraction”.

"It's a great free day out for everyone and we hope you drop in and say hi and have a kick, hit or throw at the dart ball,” he said.

The festival is run by the Cooroy Future Group Inc with support from festival partners Noosa Council and Cooroy Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank and sponsors Greenwood Grove, Cooroy Supa IGA, Raine & Horne, Club Cooroy RSL, Cooroy Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Noosa, Sutton's Cleaning Service, John Madill Toyota, Wimmers Soft Drinks, Gelignite Jacks, Fiona Winter Realty, Mower & ATV, Cartwrights Lawyers, Cooroy Hotel, Cooroy Service Centre RACQ, Palm Lake Resort, Chapmans Auto Repairs, McDermott Aviation, Cooroy Camphor Laurel, Max Watterson & Associates, Sunsign Coast and Firefly Solutions.
