The emphasis for the Australia Day celebrations at the Woolshed this year is our unique Aboriginal heritage. This will begin with the traditional welcome to country given by a local Aboriginal elder, followed by local Aboriginals led by Damon Anderson playing the didgeridoo and singing traditional songs, prior to the flag raising ceremony.
As always, we will be catering for the children and families with all kinds of entertainment for the children, but this Australia Day a special treat will be in store for the children, for they will be able to learn how to play and to participate in the games that Aboriginal children played, along with a number other traditional old-time games from our European heritage.
Damon Anderson is a very gifted well known Aboriginal painter from our local community, he will be on hand all day with an exhibit of his art and as a special treat for the children, he will be teaching them the techniques of the traditional Aboriginal way of painting.
Another special treat for the children to help cope with the hot dry conditions, will be a large water slide, which will be available for the childrenâ€™s entertainment for the whole of the long weekend.
