A STAR-STUDDED line-up, including former dual rugby international Wendell Sailor will make an appearance at Wide Bay Medicare Local and Queensland Health's Cultural Healing Day today.

The annual community event aims to help improve indigenous health in a fun and supportive way.

Wide Bay Medicare Local CEO Shane Dawson said among all the fun and activities, health staff would be raising awareness of the risks associated with smoking and chronic disease.

"Events like this are not only great fun but are an opportunity for a range of health and community services to showcase their services and promote healthy messages in a positive and supportive way," he said.

Other guests include former Hi5 member Nathan Foley and Hip Hop group Last Kinection.
