News date:

After two weeks of awesome outdoor activities for families, BeachFest concludes on Saturday January 17 with a bumper schedule of free fun at Lake Pertobe.

“In the lead up to summer and with so much uncertainty around COVID-19, BeachFest activities were all designed to take place outdoors and in a way that allows people to maintain social distance,” Warrnambool City Council CEO Peter Schneider said.

“In line with Victorian Government rules, as an organised event, everyone aged 18 and over is required to show proof of double vaccination.”
