Shearwater Festival


The Shearwater Festival is an annual event that aims to develop partnerships, cross cultural understanding and environmental awareness.

25 - 27 November 2016

The Shearwater Festival is an annual event that aims to develop partnerships, cross cultural understanding and environmental awareness about the short-tailed shearwater population of Phillip Island.

Phillip Island is home to a colony of short-tailed shearwater birds. Each year in April/May, the shearwaters migrate north, across the Western Pacific, to the Bering Sea around the Aleutian Islands of Alaska, USA.

In September/October, the birds return to South-East Australia, where they breed over the summer months.

Short-tailed shearwaters are an important aspect of local indigenous culture.
