The Abbey Medieval Festival – Jousting Tournament- 2017

The Abbey Medieval Festival is one of the largest Medieval Re-enactment Tournaments in the Southern Hemisphere. This annual Festival is held in early July near Bribie Island in South East Queensland.
An impressive spectacle, the Tournament attracts re-enactment groups from across Australia and internationally, with some 25-30,000 visitors from the general public attending over the two days.
The festival is a great opportunity for amateur and professional photographers alike to practice their art amidst the life, colour, flair and flamboyance that the festival brings to the Sunshine Coast.
The images here have all been taken with an Olympus Micro Four Thirds OM-D EM-5 sporting the M.Zuiko f2.8 40-150mm Pro-Zoom lens.
