All aboard in the east

With Mallacoota abuzz throughout the Wild Harvest Seafood Festival over the weekend, some lucky participants were able to enjoy the celebrations, and the idyllic location, from the water.

Over 50 festival go-ers joined the East Gippsland Catchment Management Authority and Parks Victora aboard the M.V. Loch-Ard for a tour of the bottom lake.

Taking in Swimming Point, the Narrows and a surprise visit from a couple of playful dolphins, guests learnt about the estuary’s ecology and cultural significance while soaking in its stunning beauty and wildlife.
