Victoria Nature Festival

Two weeks of virtual events that'll help you connect with nature from home.

Until 2020 hit, going outside to soak up nature's splendours was one of those things we all thought that we could always do whenever we wanted, and for as long as we wanted. Quickly, however, we've learned that we took the simple activity for granted — especially in a year that's brought multiple lockdowns and strict rules about leaving the house, including to exercise, to Victoria.

For the next two weeks the Victoria Nature Festival is aiming to let you connect with the natural world, even if you can't do so physically to the extent that you might like. From Monday, September 28–Sunday, October 11, the online fest will feature a range of free digital events that'll take you on stunning tours, teach you new skills and let you peer at cute critters.

On the agenda: an online tour of the World Heritage-listed Budj Bim landscape, a virtual forest therapy session set in the Royal Botanic Gardens' fern gully, spending time with a wombat from Healesville Sanctuary and checking out Phillip Island's popular penguin parade. That's just the beginning of the list — and while this is all timed to coincide with school holidays, you're never too old to enjoy nature's wonders.
