The Wreckfest group are excited to bring this new and unique maritime festival to Flagstaff Hill and Warrnambool.

Experience the atmosphere of a 19th Century Australian port, as Wreckfest takes you back 150 years, while you stroll through the 10 hectares, the cobblestone streets and beautiful buildings, while overlooking the picturesque Lady Bay.

There will be old trade stands and displays of crafts. These will include a tarot reader, a porcelain flower maker, a working blacksmith, Miss Lizzie at her giant spinning wheel, a sock maker, a weaver using her loom, a shearing display showing the use of hand shears, quilters, spinners, a coopers display and more

Entertainment on the day will include a Brass band, a Pipe band and the Tin Shed singers. There will also be children’s activities all and a firing of the 80 pound cannon by the Garrison.

Wreckfest 23 also caters for a variety of culinary tastes in their food court, where they will serve you typical styled fare found on a wharf back in England, with a modern twist. This includes fish and chips provided by Bundys, hot jacket potatoes, a toastie bar, high tea in the Stella Maria tearooms (bookings essential) and coffee from Espresso Mobile. Refreshments will be provided by Noodledoof brewery, Timboon distillery and Suffoir Wines.
