Welcome, skip to the content.

Victoria's diverse and downright eclectic events are there to be discovered in a number of ways. Some of them, like Port Fairy Folk Festival, Superbike World Championships, Stawell Gift, Yarra Valley Grape Grazing and the Clunes Booktown Festival, are annual events that you make a beeline for every year.

Others, like Quambatook Tractor Pull or the Ballarat Apron Festival, are more, shall we say, unusual and more likely to be stumbled upon as you mosey around the countryside. After this, they might just become annual staples, anticipated just as eagerly as the big-ticket items.

Regional events are more than just fodder for your social media – though your likes are likely to skyrocket after posting about, say, the Tea Cosy Festival. You learn a lot about regional life when you head off the beaten track and get caught up in a spontaneous celebration of village life.

Like who makes the best egg and bacon rolls in town, how much you should really put in the honesty box for that bag of apples, the secret recipe to those mind-blowingly light sponges (well, maybe not)… Most of all, you learn how generous people are at heart, and how welcome you're made to feel as you wander across Victoria. There's surely a party on somewhere.
