The Morning Glory Festival took place from September 29 to October 1 in Burketown. The festival celebrated the unique phenomenon of the unusual cloud formations that roll in once a year.

Morning Glory clouds are associated with sea breezes that develop over the Gulf. This weather event is caused by a frontal system crossing central Queensland and a high pressure system to the north.

The festival’s program of events for all ages included a rodeo, campdraft, live music, market stalls, photography competitions, seminars, tours and workshops.

The Gulf is the only spot on earth where Morning Glory clouds can be predicted and observed on a regular basis.
