With the 400 year anniversary of Dirk Hartog’s landing in Shark Bay just around the corner or should we say just up the coast, the 2016 Kalbarri Zest Festival promises to be a melting pot of cultures connected to the Dutch VOC trade within the India Ocean Rim. Maritime trading routes and vibrant ports saw many people travel across the globe to discover, prosper and become part of multicultural hotspots brimming with promise.

This year we want to celebrate the youthful energy of young sailors, explorers and women of the era who waited for their loved ones, received the attention of sailors or stepped onto a boat and had the spirit to travel to foreign lands. We will raise a glass to all those who’ve preceded us, recognising their contributions to our Australian society today and the human qualities which opened up new possibilities and connections to the world.

 

Dirk Hartog’s ship was called the Eendracht which means unity. Come and unite with us as we celebrate our history.

Kalbarri Zest Festival supporters are popping corks in celebration of a new sparkling chenin blanc which will help raise funds for this year’s Zest Festival finale.

Leading south-west winery Voyager Estate has produced Eendracht Sparkling Chenin Blanc to celebrate this year’s 400th anniversary of the landing of Dirk Hartog at Shark Bay, aboard the Eendracht.

Dates:  17th & 18th September, 2016
