The controversial Nudemanfest was once again celebrated during the Australia Day Long Weekend.
A spokesperson for the event, who asked to remain anonymous, said a large number of attendees enjoyed the event, which was held on a secluded property in the Benalla Rural City district.
“The event continues to grow each year with attendees travelling from near and far,” the spokesperson said.
“Some attendees include the event in their international holiday itineraries, whilst most travel from interstate and within Victoria - It is regarded as a must do on the nudist calendar.
“Everyone had a unique and special time at Nudemanfest.
“The men enjoyed the beautiful natural surroundings with many going on bushwalks and enjoying the camping facilities.
“The weather was particularly pleasant with the extreme heat of the previous weeks easing.
“The undisclosed location where Nudemanfest is currently held is highly regarded by the attendees, with the amenities and facilities of a high standard.”
Nudemanfest organisers aim to have an environment and climate change focus - and as a result went Green this year.
“This meant that the policy of ‘Bring it in then Take it Home’ was embraced by all the attendees,” the spokesperson said.
“Recyclables were collected by each attendee, which meant that at the completion of the event, no rubbish needed to be disposed of.”
For those who are interested in the Nudist lifestyle Nudemanfest provides an opportunity to spend the entire event naked.
“Nudity is mandatory not optional,” the spokesperson said.
“Here is a space where men can rid themselves of the restrictions of society and live in a spirit of fraternal hospitality.
“The event is strictly for males or for those persons identifying as male.
“Nudemanfest invites those males who are genuinely interested in, or want to experience, male nudity lived in a communal setting, to attend a landmark event next year.
“In 2021 the event will mark its 10th anniversary, with preparations already under way.
“A comprehensive list of activities will ensure that Nudemanfest is an event that is well received and eagerly awaited.
“To ensure that Nudemanfest attracts only those who are genuinely interested in the event interested people must first become a member.
“After the initial process members will be advised when and where the next Nudemanfest event will be held.”
