“After more than 30 years, the Jondaryan Woolshed has re-vamped its iconic “AUSTRALIAN HERITAGE FESTIVAL” to make it more family oriented and hands on” says Lisa Raklander, the General Manager of the Woolshed Complex.
“This year we have moved the Heritage Festival to the Labour Day long Weekend and developed a range of “user friendly” (day and night time activities) based (of course) on our historical roots, but aimed on giving people of all ages the opportunity to get involved in some good old fashioned “hands on outdoor fun,” Lisa says.
“Like everything in these days of virtual reality, ipads & smartphones and so forth” she says, “people are looking for something fresh and clean to do with their families, whether it is grandparents, parents or children……the family unit is becoming more and more of a focus in people’s lives once more.”
Lisa goes on to say “We have totally shifted our focus from displays of Pastoral and Agricultural memorabilia to the things that actually shaped the family values and activities of the time.
Over the three day long week end, there will be all kinds of daytime activities from damper and camp oven cooking lessons to children’s (including the grown up ones) contests such as three legged races, billy cart races, billy boiling races and so much more.
At night there are a whole range of activities planned from music and dancing to story telling and even a fun filled comedy auction…..walk up performances….or just a marshmallow toasting round the fire.
There are all kinds of food outlets including BBQ’s and campoven treats plus the venue is fully licenced.
Admission and camping prices have been set with a family budget in mind and all activities offered are designed for maximum visitor fun!
