ChillOut Festival sends message of diversity and inclusion | Photos

Thousands of people flocked to Daylesford throughout the weekend for Australia’s largest regional celebration of queer country pride.

The ChillOut Festival, which began on Thursday, reached peak frivolity on Sunday when the much-loved parade took over Vincent Street. It was a show of diversity and inclusion by individuals and LGBTI community groups from around the state. 

More than 50 events on the program provided entertainment for five days of queer pride festivities. Sunday's ChillOut Carnival was a fun day for all, featuring music, women's circus, a dog show, workshops, stalls and country games. 

Festival events continue on Monday with a recovery party and a recovery lunch.
