Floating Film Festival

Catch a flick while floating in this heritage-listed outdoor pool.

Most Aussies flock to cinemas in summer to escape the heat, but this March, why not embrace it and catch a few flicks while floating in Wylie's Baths, when the heritage-listed tidal pool plays host to the Floating Film Festival.

After being cancelled due to some wild weather in November, the festival will run across March 15 and 16. It features a lineup of marine-themed films, including Blue The Film, a documentary about ocean pollution and its devastating impact on marine life, and Duct Tape Surfing, a moving short-film about a surfing paraplegic.

If the thought of spending hours in the water gives you wrinkly finger-filled nightmares, fret not — you can also watch the films stretched out on the pool's surrounding rocks and deck. On the deck, you'll also find wines by the Yarra Valley's Innocent Bystander, G&Ts by Four Pillars and summery snacks.

As an added bonus, profits from the night go to maintaining the baths, so you can spend many a summer cooling off in its waters.
