Low Light, Queenscliff Has Returned
Winter Is Coming! The Bellarine is alive, eclectic with multiple immersive experiences like no other.
Friday 3rd May – Sunday 30th June
Collectively bringing together local arts, music, literature, film & culinary talents in a two month-long celebration of the senses this May & June.
See gothic architectural grandeur on a weekly heritage walk, hear the roar of the crowd as Dan Sultan, Clare Bowditch and Archie Roach perform in the QMF Concert Series, smell the smoke as sculptures simultaneously burn up the night sky for Winter Solstice, taste the seafood buffet brunch and results of a warming whiskey workshop, and touch the paper and ink of a Queenscliffe Literary Festival session.
Queenscliff & Point Lonsdale sure knows how to party!
The Low Light Program will also include the Bellarine Lighthouse Film Festival screening various movies, along with light installation works by Lux Anemograph, The Blues Train, cartoonists Michael Leunig & Jim Pavlidis in conversation, Mirka Mora inspired doll-making classes and Sunday Blues Sessions and Whiskey & Gin Masterclasses at the Queenscliff Brewhouse.
Bathing the streets and shop fronts of Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale blue lights have been strung up around the town to guide you as you explore all that the night has to offer.
The month of June in particular will come alive with the juxtaposition of extravagant Fire and Ice events. The Winter Solstice Fire Sculptures will see three art installations burnt simultaneously on the night of June 22nd, whilst the first week of pop-up ice skating rink and school holiday spectacular Winter Wonderland at Queenscliff Harbour will round out the month.
Low Light can be enjoyed as a day trip or as a full weekend away. For those wishing to make a weekend of it, there will be events hosted Friday through to Sunday, all within easy walking distance of the historic town centre. A mere 90 minutes from Melbourne’s city centre, Queenscliff & Pt Lonsdale are equally accessible from Geelong, Ballarat and of course from the Mornington Peninsula by ferry. For weekend visitors, there’s a plethora of hotels, motels and B&Bs both in Queenscliff and its nearby environs.
This May & June, come and see Queenscliff in a different light…
