A Huge Thank You to Our Sponsors
Nightjar Festival formed out of passion and love for what we do!
When looking to bring sponsors into the Nightjar family we searched for people
that were just as passionate about their business.
Our Major Sponsors are local businesses who love what they do, check them out…
Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beer
Otway Brewing – proud makers of Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beers and Forbidden Fruit Ciders – strive to create the best beer possible by using the best ingredients possible and water is the key. Located in the Otways, they are blessed with pure Otway rainwater, it is well known that you need good water to make good beer and there’s nothing better than water from the lush rainforest. After many years of research (and many samples of beer) the decision was made by Janine Rose to build a craft brewery on site at Otway Estate. Although a winery, Otway Estate has embraced beer and brewing as much as the love of fine wine. Otway Brewing is now directing the manufacturing and distribution of Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beer and Forbidden Fruit Cider. At Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beer, they believe that beer is diverse in it’s colour, aroma and flavour and is not just limited to “yellow fizzy stuff”. They create beers to match an appearance, aroma and flavour profile – not a budget – so they use the best possible ingredients they can find. Their repetoire of exciting beer recipes continuously grows and they’re always keen to try something new. We know you’ll enjoy their beer as much as they enjoy brewing it for you!
Let us take a moment to tell you a story. A story about bravery, about a giant of their time, about a legend. A man who stood tall at six foot six, and who inspired the adventurous name and spirit of 6Ft6 Wines.
In 1803, a convict named William Buckley – the man who stood tall at six foot six – pulled off a daring escape from the British, and landed at the Port Phillip area. Stranded, but free, he came across a local indigenous tribe, and the tale goes that he survived the next 32 years living with them. These days they call William Buckley a legend – a giant of his time. At 6Ft6, they just know him as Will, the guy who inspired the “Pinot for the people”, and the guy who stood tall at 6Ft6.
The motto of 6Ft6 is simple: life is too short to settle for ordinary, so they make the stylish, savvy, go-to wine for good times and adventures. From natural party starters to sophisticated showstoppers – from “Pinot for the people” to Shiraz, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Crisp White, Rosé and Prosecco – we’ve got it all. Our premium, cool climate drops are class acts at a price that’s never out of reach.
Whatever your occasion or celebration, we’ll always leave you #feeling6Ft6.

TRANSPORT ACCIDENT COMMISSION
Towards Zero is a vision for a future free of deaths and serious injuries on our roads. The move Towards Zero is a collaborative effort between everyone in the community. Together, we can build a safer road system and help change road safety for the better. In the heat of a fun night out, it can be hard to keep track of how much you’ve had to drink and it’s always risky to guess what your BAC might be. The truth is, it is very difficult to weigh up all of the variables and say whether you’re under the limit. It’s not as simple as counting your drinks. We don’t want to see any more people killed or hurt because of drink driving so we’re asking people to separate the two altogether.
