Colours of CoastOut

THERE was no shortage of colour and movement when Park Beach Reserve served as the base camp for the fifth annual CoastOut Festival at the weekend.

Hundreds of visitors from across the east coast joined local revellers for the three-day music and performance event which was once again blessed with perfect weather.

Local photographer Drew Hopper provided this great shot.
