The Environmental Forum is a major highlight of the Cavendish Red Gum Festival; it is well-attended by knowledgeable speakers as well as environmental groups. Art and photography enthusiasts will appreciate the Red Gum Gallery, though the Sculpture Walk is also an interesting way to learn about both art and nature.
The event also features market vendors offering a wide array of 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 that will be offered throughout the day at the Cavendish Red Gum Festival. For adults, there is no shortage of excellent food and wine as well. If you’re feeling brave, you may want to take in a hot air balloon ride for a birds’ eye view of the majestic red gum trees.
The event takes place at the Cavendish Town Square, S.M.Hall, Ron Lewis Park and Cavendish Primary School in Cavendish, Victoria.
