Hit the Great Ocean Road for music

THE Falls Festival is an annual music and arts festival is held on a farm surrounded by the beautiful Otway rainforest above Victoria's stunning Great Ocean Rd.

Entertainment across two stages features a line-up of top bands, DJs and comedians from Australia and around the world.

The on-site Arts Village offers a variety of projects and performances, with opportunities for festival-goers to unleash their inner creativity. Roving performers, workshops, and great food add to the mix.

Camping is an integral part of the experience, but a shuttle bus also runs from nearby Lorne.

A companion event is held in Tasmania between December 29 and January 1.
