In 2021 we managed to squeeze our community Biggest Morning Tea in before lockdown restrictions start and raised over $650 in the process.

Thank you so much to all who baked, donated, organised, set-up, packed up and came along to support this important cause.

We will be doing it again in May 2022 at the Apollo Bay RSL on Pengilley Ave.


More information to come in April 2022, but the set-up is the same: bring a plate, bring a donation and bring a friend.

Covid Gigs at Home

Covid Gigs at Home

Apollo Bay Covid Gigs Online – watch now and enjoy

It’s no secret. The emergence of COVID -19 was a major blow for the world of the creative arts. Not to be outdone, a plan was hatched.

Marrar Woorn Neighbourhood House, in association with Matty Orchard Music, Jackson Hayat Films and Show, Don’t Tell present a covid friendly gig to bring some music to your soul. All Apollo Bay home-grown talent and recorded live at the newly refurbished Apollo Bay Seniors Hall. The gig will be freely available online and through local radio 3ABR in the weeks to come – it’s a gift from us to you, to help soothe the covid blues.

Featuring local Apollo Bay singer songwriters: Ella Summers, Outtatime, Jack Fillmore, Katie Maxwell, Georgia Howell, Seamus Fillmore and Oscar Lalor.

Release Date: Friday 11th September, 6.30pm

All our performers developed their craft at the Apollo Bay P-12 College’s House Of Rock and all but one had returned home to ride out Victoria’s Stage 3 lockdown with their families in August, 2020.

Having them back in town represented an opportunity to showcase their awesome talents in a COVID friendly manner and to help reconnect our community through music and stories.

Like so many people around the world during these unusual times, we miss music as well as each other. For now, stay safe and plan to enjoy these seriously talented people doing what they do best.

This project functions under a covid safe plan, in-line with the Victorian Chief Health Officer Directions as at 10/08/2020, with the approval of local Vic Pol, local DHHS, Colac Otway Shire and Great Ocean Road Health.

Join us for the launch
