The annual Toast to the Coast festival is back for the 14th year celebrating the amazing wines of the greater Geelong region.


The festival is going from strength to strength and its no wonder with the Geelong region producing some of Australia’s best wines. The festival takes place on the Saturday the 31st of October and the 1st of November and includes dozens of our best wineries on the Bellarine, the Moorabool Valley and Surfcoast.

Shuttle buses are the best way to enjoy the day, with regular services travelling between wineries in the three regions. Feeder buses are also loop the Geelong Railway Station so its a fantastic event from those out of town. Be sure to organize your bus tickets and tickets for the festival before hand to avoid disappointment as things can get busy.
