A writers corner will showcase books published by island residents.

Attendees will be able to go on escorted historic tours of the island and join in family beach games.

Ms Brammer said there would be a beach art competition.

"Groups are given about one square metre of beach to create a picture using whatever they find on the beach," she said.

"The theme will be Respecting our Bay.

"Once the tide comes in all evidence of the activity will be washed away."
