The world’s biggest Beanie Festival is one of those iconic Alice Springs events, held during the colder months of winter, when everyone needs a beanie…

Check out our photographs of a selection of some of the amazing beanies on display at the 2022 Alice Springs Beanie Festival Exhibition (see our Beanie QuickLinks).

Reach for the Stars, The Pearls of the Sky
Follow Your Dreams
And
Fly Fly Fly

Reaching for the stars and following your dreams is a lifelong journey.
It is when I am relaxing and drinking tea I am able to dream about my future
goals and implement plans so that I too can “fly, fly, fly”.

Initially my inspiration to participate in this year’s beanie festival came from my sister
and my daughter. At first, I was hesitant of the challenge but with their encouragement I was able to begin my creation.

I accessed You-tube tutorials for instructional techniques.
