Located on the Eyre Highway, Ceduna is on the main traffic route between Western Australia and the eastern states, being the only major centre close to the Nullarbor.
The primary location for Oysterfest is along the lush foreshore overlooking Murat Bay near the Ceduna Sailing Club, covering an area of more than 9000 square metres.

Format

The main stage adjacent to the foreshore will be the entertainment hub of the festival with presentations of live music, dancing, competitions and cultural activities. Beyond the main stage area there will be several rows of market style exhibitor marquees, food stalls, carnival rides and exhibits. A licensed bar area will serve drinks from a marquee in an area near the main stage, along with our new Boutique Beverages Pavilion where you will be able to taste a range of wines, craft beers and cocktails.


Additional special activities will be held in various venues around Ceduna including the Ceduna Foreshore Hotel and the Ceduna Memorial Hall. One of the festival highlights will be a fireworks spectacular on Sunday lighting up the night sky above Murat Bay. The festival will operate on Saturday from 11am till 11pm and Sunday from 11am till 11pm. Entry is free to all patrons.


There will be a program of entertainment scheduled for the main stage throughout the day that will include live music, competitions, cultural and dance exhibitions from local, regional and Australian artists.


There will also be a program of limited audience and exclusive events staged within separate marquees offering either free or paid workshops, master classes, information sessions. These special events will be promoted in conjunction with the general festival marketing with ticketed events expected to be significant draw cards that will attract media attention both in the lead up and at the festival.
