Matsuri Floating Lantern

A glowing flotilla of love and peace

Send your message out to the universe in one of the most symbolic ways possible at The Floating Lantern Matsuri. Whatever your message is, watch it float in glowing unison with all the other messages into the sunset.

The Floating Lantern Matsuri embraces everything about life, love, peace, and friendship, providing you with a chance to get your thoughts down in writing and gently send them off onto destinations unknown. Whether your message is personal in memory of a lost loved one, a wish, a prayer or general words of encouragement and happiness for the world – put it on a lantern and watch it commence it’s peaceful, glowing journey on the evening tide.

Price: Free to attend
Lantern Kits: $ 15
VIP Ticket: $120 (single – including GST and booking fee)

Online purchases will close on 20 August (if not sold out prior).
Lantern Kits will be available to purchase at the Information Booth during Shinju Matsuri.

VIP TICKETS

VIP Tickets will include your lantern kit, free-flowing drinks, and canapes as well as comfortable seating as you relax, listen to music and watch the sunset before and after sending your floating lantern message out to sea.

LANTERN PURCHASES

  1. ONLINE – Purchase your lantern kit online here. Then pick up your lantern from the Info Booth (located on Male Oval in Broome). If you’d like to decorate your lantern before launching it we advised you pick it up before the event.
  2. INFO BOOTH – Purchase your lantern at Shinju Matsuri at the Info Booth on Male Oval – Sale at the Info Booth will close on Friday 13th at 12 pm.
  3. AT THE EVENT – Purchase your lantern on the beach at the Floating Lantern Matsuri event – there are only a limited number of lanterns for sale on the beach so we would advise pre-purchasing your lantern to ensure you don’t miss out.

Decorate your lantern at home or on the day at Gantheaume Point.

Bring your lantern with you to Gantheaume Point so you can prepare your lantern for launch.

Lanterns will set sail at sunset and we encourage you to bring your swimming gear as there’s a possibility of getting a bit wet when launching your lanterns into the water.

Make a lovely evening of it and bring a picnic or take advantage of our VIP tickets to make this sunset experience even more memorable.

Environmental Considerations

We love how beautiful and clean Broome’s coast is and we want to keep it that way!

Once the lanterns have floated into the sunset and you return back to enjoy your picnics or VIP entertainment, the Shinju team are hard at work making sure no lanterns are left astray to float out and pollute the ocean. Boats, barriers and Shinju swimmers ensure each lantern is collected. Help us keep the beach beautiful and remember to pick up your picnic leftovers and wrapping.

Please consider the environment when decorating your lanterns at home. While we do recover the lanterns we advise against using glitter or non-water-soluble paints that may make their way into the ocean.

A Beautiful casual garden resort that is perfect for families with kids. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Our... 2 bedroom apartment was simple but perfectly comfortable, next time I think we would splurge on a 3 bedroom bungalow as they looked amazing. We especially loved the gardens and the pools. It was perfect to spend peaceful downtime and then go off on adventures in larger Broome. You would, however, definately want to have a car as it is not ideal for walking/public transport.read more

We're in a well equipped 2 bedroom chalet with cool outdoor verandah -- the 2 pools are a bit too cool for a Qld'er at... present but pleasant to sit by. You definitely need a car or to catch a taxi to town.read more
