About Wild Harvest Seafood Festival
April 12-14th, 2019
The Wild Harvest Seafood Festival aims to highlight the unique abundance and variety of seafood in East Gippsland and surrounding regions. It is a celebration of the natural fruits of the land and sea, and the indigenous custodians that have been connected with this land for thousands of years.
Nestled on the rocky shores of the Wilderness Coast, Mallacoota, Victoria lies untouched - surrounded by the Croajingolong National Park to one side and the pristine waters of the Mallacoota Inlet and roaring waves of the ocean to the other. It is a place where kangaroos and koalas inhabit the town spaces as much as the people do, where the routine of daily life hinges on the cycles of swell and weather, and the entire population turns to the ocean for its livelihood, sustenance, or simply to find peace.
Just as Mallacoota lies off the beaten path, so too does the produce available at the Wild Harvest Seafood Market. Come try locally caught abalone, fresh samphire, or even an urchin infused beer for those who are not faint of heart! Funded by the Victorian Fisheries Authority and the East Gippsland Shire, and run by the local community, Wild Harvest Seafood festival offers something new for everyone.
Come and discover some of Australia's freshest and most outstanding local seafood, produce, beer and wine surrounded by the beauty of the Wilderness Coast.
