Nightjar Festival Torquay




Oh what a night!

It was a balmy summer evening in Torquay, happy folk had gathered to eat and chat and enjoy the sound of wonderful music filling air!

We were lucky enough to call this fabulous outdoor venue our “worksite” for the evening and continued to cook and serve spring rolls while bopping to the beats made by truly talented musicians.

Nightjar Festival will be on in Torquay every Thursday in January before it moves to Geelong and every Friday in February. It’s such a perfect summer event, no fuss, very groovy, happy people…and awesome food!

Hope to see you there,
