Born in Bondi with a mission to bring action and attention to the ocean to the widest possible audience, the Volvo Ocean Lovers Festival will continue our goal to captivate, inspire and motivate the public to accelerate change that positively impacts our world this November with our “Science in your Swimmers” theme for the festival as the place to come and “Sea Change”.

An entertainment program of music, talks, workshops, art, science showcases and clean-ups, will introduce the public practical and fun ways to love our ocean better and protect the blue heart of our planet.


The call to action will be clear that we are the place to come and see practical, innovative, and scientific change being made now and celebrate progress and hope in a fun and engaging atmosphere.
