Festival Vision

A celebration of all things wellbeing, our theme is Wellbeing Conversations. It all starts with a conversation.

Come and find out what we do well in our community to support and improve our wellbeing, so that together we can do more of it.

Let's celebrate what we love about living here in Break O'Day and discover new ways to look after ourselves and each other.

Let's be curious, have fun, talk about wellbeing, share stories and make new connections!

Lots to see and do...

  • Come and try workshops - yoga, brain training and more

  • Treasure hunt

  • Kids Corner with lots of activities to try

  • Pedal Bike Slushies

  • Wellbeing Tree

  • Experience what it is like living with Dementia through a VR headset

  • Get pampered with a massage or treat yourself to some wellness products from our stall holders

  • Meet people in our community here to support you and your family

  • Get creative with clay, oil pastels, plants, fabrics and more...

  • Try a fitness workout

  • Get tips for eating healthy

  • Therapy ponies

  • Hula hooping

  • and much more....

Find out more about your community and the things you can get involved in that will help you feel good, do good and think good.

It's as easy as ABC...
