Kings Park Festival   

The Kings Park Festival is a long-running tradition to celebrate spring and the wonderful wildflowers that appear throughout the south-west of Western Australia during this time.

Kings Park Festival - click for slideshow
Festival slideshow
From its humble beginnings as a five day event in 1964, depicting plant specimens in jars on trestle tables, the festival has blossomed into the current format of floral displays, live music, exhibitions, workshops, interpretive artworks, guided walks and family activities during the entire month of September.

The Kings Park Festival presented the 'Magic of Nature' in September 2014. Nestled among the most spectacular wildflower show on Earth, around 600,000 visitors enjoyed a bewitching program of live music, exhibitions, fascinating guided walks, family fun and much more.

Santos Live Sundays presented another lively series of outdoor music, featuring Australian songstress Christine Anu, local darlings Stratosfunk and a range of fabulous WA talent. More than 6,000 youngsters were spellbound at the Fantastic Faraway Festival for families.

Outdoor exhibitions 'Unearthed' and 'Uprooted' took visitors on a journey below ground to explore a different perspective of the natural world.

The 2014 Kings Park Festival was made possible through the valuable support of major Festival partner Santos, Lotterywest, the Friends of Kings Park and The West Australian newspaper. We are also grateful to the army of volunteers and staff who bring the Festival to life each year.

Thank you to everyone who made the 2014 Kings Park Festival such a success - especially our wonderful visitors who danced, picnicked, strolled, listened, watched and smiled through another fabulous September.

The Kings Park Festival will return from 1 - 30 September 2015, we'll see you there!

Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show WA   

Come and share the Spring beauty of the Ravensthorpe Range, the magnificent Hopetoun Coast and the Fitzgerald River and Frank Hann National Parks.

Over the last 30 years the Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show has developed into one of the best shows in Western Australia. Possibly the largest number in the world of different species of named wildflowers are displayed, collected from one of the world's richest biodiversity areas.

Escorted 4WD tag along tours will be scheduled through the Ravensthorpe Range. A brochure, available at the Visitors Centre and at the Wildflower Show, identifies 12 drives designed for viewing particular flowers. It is also illustrated with stunning photographs.

An escorted Wildflower Walk is scheduled in the Ravensthorpe Range.

The Railway Heritage Trail provides stunning walks in spring. It is made up of four sections along the old railway track between the towns of Ravensthorpe and Hopetoun. There are plaques identifying flora and fauna and historical sites along the way. The wildflowers in spring are spectacular. Brochures with maps of each section are available.

The Wildflower Show Shop offers many wildflower related books, cards and products, and features the work of local artists and crafts people, and DVDs with botanical information and photographs of over 200 different wildflowers for sale.

The Ravensthorpe Herbarium, situated next door to the Wildflower Show, holds many hundred botanical specimens collected from within the Ravensthorpe Shire. Experts on the local flowers are on hand each day for identification queries.

Devonshire Teas and warming soup are available each day, provided by local fund raising organisations. The comfortable surroundings of the 106 year old Ravensthorpe Community Centre will make a refreshing 'tea break' for the weary traveller.

Proceeds from the Wildflower Show are donated to partnership organisations which assist in the running of the show, the Senior Citizens and the Ravensthorpe Historical Society.

Mildura Country Music Festival   

When Australian country music fans talk of the festival "biggies", the Mildura Country Music Festival rates a mention alongside the Tamworth Country Music Festival and the Gympie Muster as one of the big three. The major difference between the other two and the annual Mildura Country Music Festival is that Mildura has Australia's biggest showcase of Independent entertainers. What that means is a seemingly unending cast of highly talented professional country music artists who aren't signed to major record label deals.

The Independent factor gives Mildura a very different complexion, and it's a successful formula that has worked admirably over the past twenty-five years. In 2015, more than 80 individual artists and groups will entertain over the 10-day period to celebrate the 29th Anniversary, and the roster comprises many award winners. But then, when you consider that the Independent artists make up probably 95 percent of performers in the country music industry, and the calibre and achievements of the artists is well documented, it strikes home that there is a huge well of talent out there.
The venues, 26 in all, spread from the City Mall providing all-day entertainment at central city venues in Mildura to outlying locations like Wentworth, Merbein, Red Cliffs, Coomealla, Irymple, Buronga and Gol Gol. Every taste is catered for with Line Dancing, Country Rock, Bluegrass, Bush Ballads and daily Walk Ups for those not on the program.
So why do they (the organisers) drive themselves into the ground each year to make the Mildura Festival such a successful music and tourism event? Simple - they do it for the love of the music, they do it for the Independent Country Music artists, they do it for Mildura, and they do it for the fans. It's a terrific combination that has created one of Australia's most unique musical events.

Deni Ute Muster   

Many suggestions were raised and discussions centered on the shape and genre of the new festival, what was unanimously agreed though, was that it must showcase our pride of our unique Deniliquin way of life.

Hence the Deni Play on the Plains Festival was conceived, a festival to be held on the flattest, natural, open plains on earth, ute culture an intrinsic part of Deniliquin, would play a major part of the festival and hence the Deni World Record Ute Muster burst into the national psyche.

An amazing 2839 drivers took part, clearly establishing Deniliquin as the ute capital of the world and wrote itself into history claiming the Guinness Book of Records title for the largest parade of legally registered utes in the World.

A new world record bid has been held as part of the annual Play on the Plains Festival each September/October NSW Labour Day Long weekend since then, bringing more and more utes and visitors to our town every year.

Our Festival is a not for profit community event, run by 5 staff, Board of Directors, a volunteer working party and huge support from our local businesses, organisations, sponsors and volunteers.

The program provides entertainment for patrons of all ages including live music for over 24 hours during the event, free children's activities, carnival rides, a ute museum, sports driving competitions, bull ride and interactive competitions.

Elmore Field Days   

The first Elmore Field Days were held in October 1964 after a voluntary Committee organised the first comprehensive display of farming equipment and services alongside the Campaspe River.

The permanent site now has a developed cost approaching $2.5 million and is being continuously enhanced by the construction of additional buildings for both the public and exhibitors, provision of additional services including equipment demonstration areas.

Elmore has gained recognition as one of Australia's premier agricultural Field Days.

The Elmore Events Centre is home to the annual Elmore Field Days in October each year together with a growing range of agricultural and other functions and events. Conveniently situated in north central Victoria this unique venue will soon be an even more valuable facility when the major new development and building plan is completed later in the year to complement the existing facilities on the 154 ha site.

Stanthorpe Rocks   

It wasn't just the heat that broke records at Stanthorpe Rocks 2014, as the music festival also broke records being sold out early with a record number of attendees, which is quite an achievement for an event in its second year!

Fabulous feedback from attendees, vendors and business throughout the region is flowing in to event organisers, Slydogz Eventz.

"We've had lots of positive feedback and a lot of people wanting to book for next year already, which is great for the town and for all of us. Generally people had a really good time. One lady that called into the info centre had taken her mother and her daughter and they all really enjoyed themselves, so the line-up obviously had very broad appeal!" reported Franki from Top of the Town Tourist Park.

Event organiser, Ian Wade-Parker of Slydogz Eventz says the popularity of the event can be attributed to creating the perfect festival formula with even the smallest of details addressed.

"We were really happy with how the day went and the photos are testament to everyone having a great time as there are smiles all around! We are already planning next year to be bigger and better than ever with a new location that will give us more space and allow us to custom build the site. It's a great event for the region and we are really proud of it," said Ian Wade Parker, CEO of Slydogz Eventz.

"We've developed our own style for our festivals so that we deliver a premier and unique experience which is really attractive to the discerning festival goer. As well as terrific rock music we also provide a great selection of local food and beverages at reasonable prices, superior facilities with everything kept clean throughout the event, happy and friendly staff, a large dance area and even a chill out zone to kick back and relax in that showcases local acoustic musicians."

It is estimated that the event returned over $1.2 million to the Granite Belt with over 70% of the ticket holders come from outside the region from as far away as Adelaide and Darwin.

There are returns to local accommodation, retail, food and beverage providers and community organisations such as Lions Club of Stanthorpe, Rotary Club of Stanthorpe and Rural Fire Service who undertook fundraising activities at the event.

Slydogz Events announced at the festival they are rolling out the Rocks Events throughout Queensland in 2015 including Charters Towers, Roma and other possible locations. Based on the highly successful Stanthorpe Rocks formula these events are set to be sure winners also.

From February 13-15, 2015 in a beautiful natural amphitheatre next to Australia's longest river, we're building a small stage on an old timber jetty.

You're in for some treats this year. Sarah Blasko, Dan Sultan, Tex Perkins & The Dark Horses, The Whitlams, Diesel - it's impossible to pick a favourite. We cannot wait to experience these artists under the red gums, and if you happen to be passing through we'd love you to join us. Bring a picnic. Bring your friends.

Melbourne Caravan, Camping & Touring SuperShow   

After celebrating its 60th birthday in 2014, the Victorian Caravan, Camping & Touring Supershow moved in 2015 from Caulfield Racecourse to our new home at Melbourne Showgrounds

Presented by the Caravan Industry Association Victoria (CIA VIC), the move marks the dawn of a new era for Australia's biggest outdoors show with even more of the latest and greatest caravans, camping gear and outdoors accessories on display than was previously possible. The new venue has 18,000 square metres more exhibiting space than the previous venue, truly making the 2015 Supershow the biggest yet.

The additional space will also enhance the show experience for patrons with extra food outlets and rest areas, an abundance of entertainment, product demonstrations and seminars at the Supershow.

There will be something to enjoy for every member of the family with fantastic prizes to be won, free showbags, fishing, the Yamaha Supertank, cooking demonstrations and much more. Not forgetting the kids, the Caravanning Explorers' Club will include giveaways and showbags plus one child will take home an awesome Caravan Cubbie valued at over $2000.

Just 7km from the Melbourne CBD, Melbourne Showgrounds is easily accessible for patrons with plenty of car parking available, plus trains direct to the front gate on Saturday and Sunday of the Supershow. The convenient shuttle buggies will also return in 2015 to help patrons get around the 60,000 square metres of exhibition space.

Caravanning and touring is a booming industry, with over 22,000 RVs manufactured Australiawide last year, which is four times the number produced 20 years ago, as more and more Australians choose to explore the wonderful holiday destinations in their own backyard.

Port Fairy Folk Festival   

40th Port Fairy Tales 2016
Next March, we will be celebrating another milestone
along the happy trails of this festival when we present
the 40th edition, almost 39 years along from the first
in December 1977.
Celebrate! The 40th
Port Fairy Folk Festival with
us next March 11 -14 2016
To explain, in 1980 we looked up the theory of time travel and discovered we could go back in time plus change the dates, by running two festivals just 3 months apart - December 1979 and then March 1980. The 40th year will actually occur in December 2017. The good news is that we are not as old as we thought! This is a little known secret bonus for making and enjoying music. We hope things stay that way.
There has been a lot of water under the Moyne River Bridge since then. Over the years of 40 festivals we will have presented around 3,500 acts including over 500 international acts and over 12,000 musicians to an audience of beyond 240,000 ticket holders and 1,000,000 attendances to the wee village of Port Fairy. As we always say, "Fifty thousand mutton birds can't be wrong".

The festival site is the village of Port Fairy, four hours drive west of Melbourne along the Princes Highway. The Great Ocean Road trip takes twice as long! The main site in the village is The Festival Arena with all the big venues.

Port Fairy is an old sea-side fishing and farming village looking out to the Southern Ocean waves rolling along the south-west coast of the state of Victoria. It was along this south coast of Australia that ships sailed in the early years of immigration. Many were wrecked on the rocks. A fishing fleet still operates from the wharf on the river.
The town of Port Fairy has become a thriving year round tourism destination and is an ideal stopover for ongoing tours further west or north to The Grampians.

The main festival site is The Arena situated at the north section of Southcombe Park (shown in green right side lower) along Campbell St. . This also has the Southcombe Park camping ground. Other venues are situated around the village eg at Surf Club, Fiddlers Green & Railway Place (cnr Bank & Sackville St), Reardon Theatre, Lecture Hall, St Johns Church, St Patricks School Hall, Consolidated School Hall and others. Google maps should also help locate the several other camp grounds.
