Events

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
In Geelong see stunning aerobatics at the Australian International Airshow or watch colourful spinnakers fly on Corio Bay in Geelong during the Festival of Sails – Australia's largest regatta. 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
Get musical in March and attend the Port Fairy Folk Festival with international and national artists performing in a four-day celebration of folk, blues, jazz and country music, alternatively check out the smaller, more intimate Apollo Bay Music Festival.
