The Drop Festival is a national touring festival that follows the waves, celebrating the quintessential Australian road trip & following the Australian leg of the World Surf League Championship Tour & other associated major surfing events around our island nation. With this ethos, The Drop is a music festival dedicated to community, culture, local food and beverages and above all, a shared love of the ocean. Here are some simple details to help you come & enjoy the event. More detailed info can be found throughout our website.
Known as the official start point to Australia’s national heritage listed Great Ocean Road.
