"In Australia you will find a festival happening on just about any day of the week"
Australians Celebrating Anything and Everything
Australians love to put on a show. Remember the 2000 Australian Olympic games? Some called it THE GREATEST OLYMPIC'S EVER!
Australian's know how to celebrate and put on a show we have some of the most spectacular and fun festivals celebrating cultural events, sport, music and arts, camel races, fly kites and Moomba in MELBOURNE, the SYDNEY festival which attracts thousands of people from a round the world.
Tamworth Music Festival
For example the world famous Tamworth Country Music Festival which is set in the quaint township of Tamworth New South Wales.
The best and the not so best country singers attend, bush bands play, there is food a-plenty. People from all over Australia and the world come, turning up all dressed for the occasion wearing cowboy dress with boots and belt buckets shining and buy just about everything; a cold glass of ginger beer, hand crafted country style clothing, boots and quilts, novelty items, handmade leather items, or they just come for the fun and to listen to the music.
Scottish Gathering: Brigadoon
The largest Scottish gathering in Australia. In the mists of the New South Wales Southern Highlands lies hidden the village of Bundanoon, home to the traditional Scottish Highland Games.
For the past 36 years, Bundanoon has gained the envious reputation throughout Australia for hosting “Bundanoon is Brigadoon”, the gathering held “Always in April” with a following of 10 – 12000 visitors “and you don’t have to be of Scottish descent “to come and enjoy and participate in the day.
No matter where you are in the country there will be a festival on near you celebrating food, wine, the weather, dance, music, aboriginal culture and many more.
