opening ceremony



Poseidon Staff, Competitors, and their friends are invited to attend the official opening ceremony on Thursday April 5, 2018 at the Intercontinental Hotel Sanctuary Cove.  Guests will be greeted by Australian wildlife, and an official welcome to country sunset ceremony  by an Aboriginal Corroboree. Dancers will then perform the welcome to country, with didgeridoo demonstration and traditional dot face painting to welcome guests. The games will then be officially opened by the Poseidon team and invited dignitaries followed by a fireworks spectacular performed by Jetpack Entertainment & Events which will set the mood to relax on the beach and listen to a range of music by the band ‘Geed Up’.
