Apollo Bay Seafood Festival
We had a wonderful day out serving our Swan Bay and Scotchmans Hill wines at the annual Apollo Bay Seafood Festival. Held over 3 days, from Friday the 16th of February to Sunday the 18th of February 2018, this year the festival was based in a new location, at the Apollo Bay harbour on the Great Ocean Road.
We participated on the Saturday which was 'Harbour Day, ' where patrons could meet the local fishermen and taste seafood straight from the source. The event boasted a vibrant program of entertainment and fun including family-firendly food vendors, demonstrations, displays, hands-on workshops and casting competitions.
We enjoyed seafood Paella from La Bimba filled with Portarlington mussels, calamari, pipis and chorizo. We also indulged in lobster rolls from the 'fish & chip' stall. They were to die for!
There were live bands and the weather was spectacular - a perfect day out on the Great Ocean Road.
The 2018 Apollo Bay Seafood Festival coincided with the 80th anniversary of the Apollo Bay Fisherman's Co-Op. It remains one of only three remaining operational fishing co-operatives in Victoria!
Can't wait to do it all again next year!
