Australian Kiteflyers Society

A Timeless Art

Welcome to 2019 FOTW

The Australian Kiteflyers Society play’s a major role in the Festival of Winds at Bondi and 2019 will mark our 41st Year. In co-operation with Waverly council we can celebrate multiculturalism through kite art from around the world. We appreciate their support on many levels.


This 41st Festival of the Wind’s theme is PROUD TO BE AUSTRALIAN. Let's make this the best festival ever. The committee welcomes past and present office holders and members to let us know of your intent to come and celebrate our 41st year. Remember to get your applications in early so your spot in the festivities will be acknowledged.
See you there.
