Torquay and Geelong NightJar Festivals

Step inside the wonderland that is the Nightjar Festival! Over 8 weeks in summer you will be immersed in the magical atmosphere of music, roving performers, buskers and culinary delights.

The splendor begins in Torquay on Thursday nights overlooking the sun setting over the ocean. Then to Geelong on Friday nights – a festival that is cheeky and full of life.

Meander through the carefully curated market precinct, discovering many emerging designers or maybe you’ll find yourself in the depths of “dessert lane”. Remember calories consumed at Nightjar stay at Nightjar!

If chilling out is more your speed then head to one of the open bars, shake out a picnic rug and indulge in some of the region’s best boutique crafted beers and wine.

If you’re not quite old enough to play in the license areas, there is a magical kiddies wonderland just for you!



Everyone will leave with a unique experience and a smile on their face! It’s all about having fun at Nightjar but sometimes life requires you to be serious! Large scale events create lots of rubbish, which is why Nightjar Festival is getting down and dirty on their own “War on Waste” – contributing to saving the planet one festival at a time!

Nightjar isn’t finished yet! They have a secret waiting to unfold… it’s The 4th Night. The team is bursting at the seams to share with you.
