Embrace the elements of the southern Otways when a new after-dark festival sparks up next month: The first WinterWild will revel in the untamed side of Apollo Bay. Don’t look away.
Inspired by the elements of earth, water, air and fire – and informed by the history of Apollo Bay - the 18+ festival takes place over four weekends to highlight various art forms: music, street theatre, film and storytelling.
