Celebrating all things seafood
Celebrate Victoria's freshest marine produce with the return of the popular Apollo Bay Seafood Festival on 14th-16th February. With activities spanning the picturesque Apollo Bay Harbour, visitors can expect opportunities to savour seafood flavours in all forms. Festivities kick off on 14th February with the Submerged Gala Dinner hosted by Peruvian chef Alejandro Saravia (Pastuso, Farmer's Daughters), featuring a banquet of share plates, accompanied by drinks and dessert.

On Saturday 15th February, buy your seafood 'off the boat', with fresh seafood available for purchase directly from the fishermen who caught it. More food, music and activities will round out the day. Sunday will feature Two Conversation sessions, with speakers including fishermen, farmers and Indigenous knowledge keepers leading discussions around sustainability in the fishing industry.
