Shoot the breeze

Not all kites are created equal, and neither are all kite festivals. This annual event brings kites from around the world, of every shade, shape and size. Professional flyers from all over Asia will be showing off their wares and their tricks. Last year saw an orange squid as big as a house and an almost life-sized blue whale floating over Bondi. The ocean sky fills with fluttering shapes commanded by string and skill. It’s great fun for kids and inner children alike.
