The Piers Festival
Festival is held at Princes Pier, Port Melbourne during Victoria’s Term
1 school holidays.
Piers Festival celebrates and reflects on the collective historical and
contemporary migration stories at its site, Princes Pier, the significant
entry point where almost half of Australia’s post World War II refugees
arrived. The Festival brings to life the pivotal role Princes Pier played
from 1915 to 1969 in Victoria’s growth and as a gateway to the diversity of
cultures that enrich our community. With 12,000 attendees in 2015, Piers
Festival has grown to become an annual fixture in Victoria’s cultural
calendar and a significant occasion to acknowledge and bring to light our
Indigenous and multicultural talent.
Phillip Island Whale Festival
Celebrate the annual arrival of some of the ocean’s most majestic
creatures as our coastal waters play host to humpback and southern right
whales and even the occasional killer whales.
The winter school holidays don’t just mark the half-way point of the
school year; they also mean that humpback whales, southern right whales and
even the occasional pod of killer whales start to arrive in our coastal
waters. The Island Whale Festival celebrates the arrival of these majestic
creatures in our waters.
This immersive three day event takes place on Phillip Island, and has something for everyone, with a weekend packed full of
free or low cost activities right across the island. Whale spotting will of
course be a highlight of this weekend, and visitors will have plenty of
opportunities to do this from either land or sea.
