Our Backyard Apollo Bay

Whilst the weather hasn’t exactly been traditional February beach weather, nothing could dampen the spirits of the crowds of locals and visitors alike in attendance at the annual Apollo Bay Seafood Festival last weekend.

Kicking off on Friday night with the Sold Out ‘Ocean to Plate’ Gala Dinner, hosted by Peruvian Chef Alejandro Saravia (Pastuso, Farmers Daughters) followed by the ‘Harbour Day’ on Saturday, a roaring success as can be seen in the below photo, hosting a great display of produce from our local fishing fleet, pop-up restaurants, cooking demonstrations, and kids activities. ‘Conversations’ on Sunday drew in a range of speakers including fishermen, scientists, farmers, chefs & Indigenous knowledge keepers to explore the hot button issues that affect the ocean & the land, another sell out.

Over the last 8 years the festival has grown enormously and has certainly become a ‘must’ on the ‘Foodie’ calendar, a great initiative for our town, with holiday rental booking numbers up by 18% on last years bookings with majority of guests having re-booked in anticipation for next years festival, great news for the town and the Coast in general.

As the summer draws to a close the Autumn market looks set to remain hot along the coast, off the back of bumper sales season with 20, million dollar plus sales by our offices over the summer period, including a $7 Million plus record breaking Lorne sale.
