Light up your winter
When the days are short and crisp, Victoria's regions heat up with fabulously entertaining events and festivals.
This winter season is packed with brilliant light festivals, shows and installations to keep the dark at bay. Join revellers at Winter Wild, featuring three days of winter feasts, live music and masterclasses against the backdrop of the lush Otway rainforest.
Winter means getting cosy while indulging in some of the region's best produce. Celebrate the humble grape at Geelong's Shiraz Festival or join the Pizzini family on a truffle foraging adventure.
Book for one-off celebrations and long-standing annual festivals that bring a loyal following. Various regional towns around Victoria put on vibrant winter festivities, including Winter Sounds in Daylesford and the Queenscliff Film Festival.
Plan a getaway around each event – and check out other festivals, events and things to do on your stay.
