                                       - is based around a global celebration of the heritage of water. The international
                                       Council of Monuments and sites (iCOMOs) nominate a theme each year for
                                       celebration on 18 April and chose water for 2011. We are thrilled to work closely
                                       with Australia iCOMOs in promoting a celebration of our cultural heritage in
                                       victoria.
                                       From Steam to Surf recognises the importance of steam power in the nineteenth
                                       century, and the tangible and intangible significance of surfing in post-war victoria.
                                       From Steam to Surf succinctly link the past to the present. ‘steam’ is symbolic of
                                       engineering and railways, and ‘surf’ represents the tangible and intangible culture
                                       of surfing in Australia. 2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the Bells Beach Classic
                                       surfing competition at Torquay, and the international significance of Bells Beach
                                       was recognised by the National Trust when it classified Bells Beach more than ten
                                       years ago. The Surf World Museum at Torquay has a special exhibition to chart the
                                       world’s longest running surfing contest.
                                       On 8 April there will be a formal launch of the Festival at Maryborough by the
                                       Central Goldfields Shire. The same day we are pleased to present in partnership

                                       farm property gulf station at yarra glen. The festival builds on our highly successful
                                       Geelong & region festival of 2010 and incorporates the rushworth easter heritage
