ILUKA residents are proud about where they live and at the weekend they got the chance to share their "piece of paradise" during the annual Living the Good Life Festival.
Anja Light, one of the festival's organisers, estimated the two-day event had attracted about 2000 people in all. Visitors to the Iluka sports fields on Saturday, where the festival kicked off, were treated to scrumptious food, live music, markets, educational workshops, a movie screening and even the highly anticipated mullet-throwing contest, which was dominated by local man Julian Moerman.
Yesterday the event shifted to a more laid-back schedule on the beach where there were sand sculpture competitions, kite-flying and demonstrations and surf competitions from the Iluka Board Riders. Ms Light said the event had been better than last year and the feedback had been "extremely positive".
