Phillip Island Small Farm and Lifestyle Expo


In a move to further develop and improve the Small Farm and Lifestyle Expo, the 2015 event has been postponed to the first half of 2017. Event date currently unconfirmed.

The inaugural Expo was launched in 2014 at the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit and proved popular with exhibitors and the public. Organisers were buoyed by the response and are confident the event has a strong future and are working hard to ensure its ongoing success.

The Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit is the ideal site to host the event being surrounded by small farms and people relocating to the region, looking for a change from city life.

The organisers wish to ensure Phillip Island's Small Farm and Lifestyle Expo showcases the very best of rural and leisure life so that visitors walk away inspired to embrace small farming and the country lifestyle. They are working hard to achieve this goal and look forward to sharing their vision with you in 2017.

Festival activities include a street procession, creative, cultural and environmental workshops, a participative dance ritual, music and dance performances and environmental walks and talks.
