Upcoming Dates


WinterWild re-imagines Apollo Bay and its surrounds in winter. The festival celebrates Apollo Bay and the Otways and highlights iconic locations and local features, all in the grip of winter while it is wild, untamed, unpredictable, awesome, and beautiful.

WinterWild is the dark heart of the Otway Coast. No longer simply a destination of pristine beaches under the summer sun, we showcase the wild power of winter: the bitter winds, the vastness of the Southern Ocean, the black mystery of the rainforest.

Full program now available on the website.
