The Great Eastern Wine Week Festival

Stretching along 220km of coastline, envied for our cool-climate drops, The Great Eastern Wine Week is a 10-day festival and a collective of over 30 events at our region’s boutique wineries and local businesses. It’s all about the people, the place, the natural beauty and the stories of the East Coast and enjoying our award-winning wines! Meet the winemakers, growers, producers and the people behind the wine. Why not combine an event with mountain biking in St Helens, a boat cruise in the Bay of Fires, exploring Freycinet Peninsula and Wineglass Bay, or a visit to Maria Island to see their unique blonde wombats. There’s so much to do!

Join us for our 10th Year, kicking off the celebrations in Swansea!
