Nati Frinj Biennale

Friday 3rd, Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th November, 2024

Natimuk is a small town (pop 500) in a big space. Deep in the wheat belt of Western Victoria, Natimuk is home to an eclectic mix of farmers, retirees, rock climbers and artists. The Main Street is a place to walk the dog, gather tumbleweed and meet for a chat on the Post Office steps. However, every two years, the township becomes the Nati Frinj.

From the Opening Parade to Aerial Shows, from exhibitions and new theatre works to Silent Disco Walking Tours, the Nati Frinj is a chance to celebrate and express the creative energy of Natimuk and our invited artists.

Goatfest Climbing Film Festival

Sat 30th March, 2024

Beginning in 2002 ACT Natimuk has run an annual climbing film festival at Easter (or thereabouts) as a way of raising funds for it’s administration.
The event is a much loved event on the climbing community calendar. It is an opportunity for climbers to create and view films (be they amateur or professional) and to enjoy the global camaraderie that is part of being a member of this great community. Run entirely by volunteers, Goatfest opens with an offering of a hearty meal, includes the film contest replete with prizes and the coveted Golden Goat award. Alongside a selection of both professional and amateur films, there is often a feature event which may be a film, a talk or presentation.
