The Environmental Forum is a major highlight of the Cavendish Red Gum Festival; it is well-attended by knowledgeable speakers and environmental groups. Art and photography enthusiasts will appreciate the Red Gum Gallery, though the Sculpture Walk is also an interesting way to learn about art and nature.
The event also features market vendors offering various locally made goods. At the same time, live demonstrations of milling and woodworking will leave you learning a thing or two about the versatility of wood.
Families and children can look forward to many nature-based experiences at the Cavendish Red Gum Festival. There is no shortage of excellent food and wine for adults. If you’re feeling brave, you may want to take in a hot air balloon ride for a bird’s eye view of the majestic red gum trees.
