Festival program: Plan your adventure!

Friday, November  3rd – The Launch


Spend the morning exploring with a tour or do some whale watching from sea and shore. Have a taste of local life and find a quiet spot for lunch before the festival crowds arrive in earnest. From 1:30pm, celebrate the festival opening at the Eden Killer Whale Museum.

Tips: Every event after lunch is on Imlay Street, so park the car and wear good walking shoes.


 Saturday, November  4th – The Big One


Start the day with a stroll at one of our shore based whale watching hotspots, a whale watching cruise or a Poets Breakfast then gather in Imlay Street for entertainment and the famous Pentarch Forestry Street Parade. Follow it to Snug Cove for a full program of entertainment, markets and food stalls. Join in the fun with the Sapphire Coast Wilderness Oysters Great Oyster Shuck or the Capstun Pull.

Tips: Wear your best outdoor gear and carry a backpack and cash for your Snug Cove experience. Book ahead for whale watching charters and restaurants.
