Special Feature Events
We’ve organised some very special feature events for this festival and there’s more to come. Check this page periodically for updates.
Bushwacker’s Bush Dance
On the Friday night of the festival The Bushwackers will host a Gala Bushdance. There’s scarcely a schoolkid who didn’t learn a bit of bush dancing to the music of The Bushwackers. Their bush dances in the late 70’s and 80’s had thousands of people doing the Heel and Toe and Strip the Willow.
