The Southern Gippsland Sustainability Festival is returning to the State Coal Mine in Wonthaggi. This is an event that focuses on sustainable living options in Southern Gippsland (Bass Coast and South Gippsland Shires).

Held annually, alternating between South Gippsland and Bass Coast, the Festival hosts displays of alternative energy, local produce, self-sufficiency skills and a range of sustainable products.

The Festival aims to showcase a range of exhibitors and eco friendly products, provide practical information, down-to-earth demonstrations and speakers.  These provide practical skills for residents and visitors to use daily at home, work and in their community. Local entertainment and children’s activities mean that the day is not just about learning, but is also about having fun.

Sponsors and Exhibitors

A stall at the Festival can be a valuable way for businesses and community organisations to interact with the public. If you are interested in being a sponsor or an exhibitor at the 2017 Festival please contact Roslyn Jenzen.

Recycled Art Exhibition

As well as a great range of exhibits, the Festival also hosts a Recycled Art Exhibition. The theme for 2017 is 'Love Food Hate Waste'.

  • This year the Art Exhibition will be highlighting outdoor sculptural installations and encouraging collaborations.
  • Artworks will be placed around the main exhibition area and in mine buildings.
  • Comment on how society recycles food waste.
