The annual Festival of Sails, held over the Australia Day long weekend, is the largest keelboat sailing regatta in the Southern Hemisphere. Incorporating the on-water activities with a waterfront festival, with free entertainment for the community, the event attracts more than 100,000 visitors to the Geelong waterfront each year.

Featuring live music, Australia Day fireworks and celebrations, market stalls, food trucks and interactive activities, the Festival of Sails is a "must do" event on the Geelong calendar!
