East Gippsland acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Monero and the Bidawel people as the Traditional Custodians of the land that encompasses East Gippsland Shire. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in East Gippsland, their Elders past and present.


The Wild Harvest Seafood Festival was created to highlight the unique abundance and variety of seafood in East Gippsland and surrounding regions. It is a celebration of the natural fruits of the land and sea, and the Indigenous custodians that have been connected with this land for thousands of years.

Nestled on the rocky shores of the Wilderness Coast, Mallacoota, lay untouched and relatively unknown - surrounded by the Croajingolong National Park to one side and the pristine waters of the Mallacoota Inlet and roaring waves of the ocean to the other - until it was thrust into the global spotlight during devastating Black Summer bushfires. Now in its third round, Mallacoota welcomes back the Wild Harvest Seafood Festival to showcase the people and businesses that make this corner of the world so special.

So start planning your next holiday to coincide with this fantastic event and don't forget to bring that empty esky - ready to fill with local products, artworks, gifts, and of course, the best seafood the region has to offer!
