Message in a bottle launches The Glass Trail

Around fifty people attended the launch of The Glass Trail at the ‘Totally Shattered’ glass studio near Queenscliff on Friday 4 July.

Roger Grant
Executive Director of Tourism Greater Geelong and the Bellarine, Roger Grant, performed the official opening by reading a message in a bottle – a late nineteenth century ‘torpedo’ bottle that originally held water from the mineral springs at Clifton Springs. Despite the bottle’s age, its message read, “The Glass Trail is now open”!

The Glass Trail is an initiative of the Festival of Glass and Glass Trail members provided an exhibition of their work at the launch. Roger Grant said that overall, arts/cultural events attract more people than sports events and that the Glass Trail – like The Taste Trail - would give visitors to the area another reason to stay in the area, rather than just pass through.
