Originally stemming from annual music camps held on Magnetic Island, the Mulkadee Youth Arts Festival has evolved over time to become an all-encompassing celebration of the Arts. 

Mulkadee is taking a break in 2024 to commence planning for a contemporary program, to ensure the continued success of Mulkadee well into the future. 

During the break, we will be gathering critical feedback from our school communities, including students, teachers and families to assist us in envisioning a contemporary and exciting return of Mulkadee in 2025. 

To ensure the continued success of Mulkadee Youth Arts Festival into the future, Townsville Catholic Education will not be holding the event in 2024, however will be using this break to re-evaulate and review the vision of the program.

More information will be released in the new year.
