Each year in Portland (located in south west Victoria, Australia) hosts the Upwelling Festival. The festival is inspired by the Bonney Upwelling event which occurs off shore around the Portland region. The Upwelling Festival attracts many visitors and is a major activity for the town combined with the Rotary Art Show. Blue Whale Study has a stall each year to provide information on the Bonney Upwelling and the blue whales. The festival occurs on a weekend around end of October or early November. We look forward to seeing you there!
