From world-class surfing and ocean swims to folk music and wine, the Great Ocean Road region hosts a diverse range of festivals and events.

On the peninsula

On the Bellarine Peninsula take in the best in Australian blues, rock, pop, funk and jazz music at the Queenscliff Music Festival in November.

Water world
Bells Beach is home to the Rip Curl Pro, the world's longest running professional surfing event and one of the most sought after titles on the World Championship Tour. Not content being a spectator? Get amongst the 4,000 people taking part in the Lorne Pier to Pub, the world's largest open water swim, or test your stamina on the gruelling Surf Coast Century course.

Feel the beat
