Le Bon Weekend on North Keppel Island 2020

(suspended until further notice)

We are delighted to invite you to our annual French themed weekend on North Keppel Island.

Every year, the Rockhampton Alliance Française organises a French themed weekend on North Keppel Island, just off the Rockhampton coast.

During the weekend, teachers from the Rockhampton Alliance as well as guest teachers from other Alliance branches conduct a variety of activities/workshops related to France and its culture. This year, our program includes a ‘how to read a French wine card’ workshop (complete with wine tasting), a presentation on lesser known French regions for the prospective tourists among us, some language activities for those who can already speak some French, music workshop and of course, all the activities the island has to offer (swimming, whale spotting, bushwalking, birdwatching…).
