Lake Bolac Eel Festival

Contact Lake Bolac Eel Festival

The Lake Bolac Eel Festival is a community music and art festival held each autumn on the foreshore of Lake Bolac in south-western Victoria, and inspired by the fact that Lake Bolac was a traditional gathering place for indigenous people before white settlement.

The Festival is a gathering place for people who care for the environment and respect Aboriginal cultural heritage. This is reflected in the indigenous dancing and ceremony, the environmental forum, indigenous, environmental and historical displays, and the healing walk held prior to the festival, all adding up to a unique festival experience.

This welcoming and family friendly festival has something for everyone, with plenty to see and do including the art exhibition, workshops, roving entertainers, a climbing wall for the adventurous, a touch tank of live eels, plenty of children's activities, and a craft and produce market.
