Australia Day in The Hills is one of the highlights of the social calendar and The Hills Shire Council has made sure 2019 is unlike any other with an impressive list of Aussie acts, kids dedicated zones and Australiana themed entertainment to celebrate our nation’s day.
Council’s FREE celebration will return to the historic Bella Vista Farm on Saturday, January 26, from noon to 9pm.
The impressive list of acts set to wow crowds at Bella Vista Farm include children’s entertainment group Hi-5, party group The High Rollers Big Band and The Voices Supergroup with Taxiride’s Jason Singh, Boom Crash Opera’s Dale Ryder, X Factor winner Recee Mastin and Choirboys’ Mark Gable.
Attendees can also enjoy rides, street food, roving performers and Australiana displays including sheep shearing, blacksmithing, whip cracking and working dog demonstrations from Tobruk Sheep Station.
There are six zones to discover on the day, including:
Grab a spot on the hill, a snack from a food truck and spend your Australia Day afternoon enjoying live music from Hi-5, The High Rollers Big Band and The Voices Supergroup. All wrapped up with a fireworks finale at 9pm.
Delve into our nation’s past with a trip to the Homestead. Enjoy a Devonshire Tea, browse the historic displays and capture your Australia Day moment at the photo booth.
Beware the roving convicts, experience ‘true blue’ Australia with sheep shearing and working dog displays, get your face painted or tackle a ride or two.=
Discover a swag of sporty fun, exercise your green thumb, play mega jenga or help paint the giant Aussie mural.
Enjoy performances from local musicians and dance schools, meet our blacksmith, play in the giant sandpit and more as you embrace the community spirit of The Hills.
Explore our food trucks and sink your teeth into some sensational street fare with a range of cuisines to suit every taste. Make sure you leave room for dessert.
A sparkling fireworks display will wrap up the day’s event.
