Most Aussies flock to cinemas in summer to escape the heat. This December, why not embrace it and catch a few flicks while floating in Wylie’s Baths, when the heritage-listed tidal pool plays host to the Floating Film Festival.
The festival features a line-up of marine-themed films, including Blue the Film, a documentary about ocean pollution and its devastating impact on marine life, and Duct Tape Surfing, a moving short-film about a surfing paraplegic.
If the thought of spending hours in the water gives you wrinkly finger-filled nightmares, fret not — you can also watch the films stretched out on the pool’s surrounding rocks and deck. On the deck, you’ll also find wines by the Yarra Valley’s Innocent Bystander, G&Ts by Four Pillars and summery snacks.
As an added bonus, profits from the night go to maintaining the not for profit facility, so you and the community can spend many a summer cooling off in its waters.
