UPWELLING FESTIVAL LORNE
The community of Portland made a “call to the sea” to officially open the Bonney Upwelling season. I hadn’t the slightest idea what an “upwelling” was but the trumpets and chanting indicated it was a pretty big deal. Market stalls, food trucks, jumping castles and a music stage filled the foreshore. There was atmosphere, there was sunshine and I was intrigued.
APOLLO BAY SEAFOOD FESTIVAL
In 2018, the Apollo Bay Co Op celebrates 80 years of delivering fresh seafood straight from boat to belly.
FUN4KIDS FESTIVAL WARRNAMBOOL
During Winter school holidays, many children find themselves cooped up at home in front of a telly; however, that’s not how kids in Warrnambool do it.
FALLS FESTIVAL LORNE
Driving through the front gate of Falls Festival is like entering a little bubble that’s completely isolated from the outside world.
GREAT OCEAN ROAD RUNNING FESTIVAL
The long-awaited weekend had arrived. It was race day! The warmth of the sun could be felt peaking through the gap in the blinds; a crisp Autumn morning that defied every weather forecast across the state. I pulled on my active wear, fitted my runners and prepared my breakfast.
WINTER WEEKENDS FESTIVAL PORT FAIRY
The Winter Weekends festival embraces the cooler months of June and July to exhibit the uplifting people of Port Fairy and its remarkable structures and landscapes. The program spans over four weekends, the third of which has a major focus on photography.
