    Hunter Valley und Tamworth

    February 12, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 34 °C

    Von Sydney über das Hunter Valley nach Tamworth
    Im Hunter Valley durften wir Weine verkosten, danach gings weiter nach Tamworth, eine lustige Country Stadt in Australien, wo wir Lawn Ball (Mischung aus Boccia und Kegeln), eine typische Aussie Freizeitbeschäftigung, spielten. Abends hatten wir einen gemütlichen Abend im Gastgarten 😊. Ganz schön warm hier (36 Grad). 😜Read more

    Lawn bowling.?

    February 27, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    We got up sort of early to check out and leave CPD before traffic would be messy, but it was all good as it meant breakfast in Kirribilli with a nice view of Sydney harbour with the bridge and the opera house.
    First point on the agenda was wine tasting in Hunter valley, while the others tasted a few wines, I caught up on my journal.
    From Hunter valley we headed towards Tamworth, a medium sized town a bit inland. On the way we stopped for lunch and snack breaks.
    As we made it to Tamworth we immediately headed to the lawn bowling club. Lawn bowling is a game quite similar to petanque, only the bowls are larger and only weighted on one side, which make the curl when they slow down.
    Emily and I played Vicky and Stuart. At first Emily and I were dominating, but Vicky and Stuart improved quickly and we had some close matches with individual bowls being played on pro level from all of us.
    In the end Emily and I claimed a narrow victory. I expected to enjoy lawn bowl, but not as much as I actually did, it was great fun.
    As we walked back we went straight to dinner with a trivia night.

    Tamworth

    January 28, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    10 days at the Tamworth Country Music Festival! An extra 55000 people in town for the event which is in the World Top 10 music festivals. Stayed at Ranjen Horse Stud 17kms outside Tamworth. Only about 6 vans here and very quiet and peaceful. Spent some big days at various venues around Tamworth...all that planning really paid off as we saw all the artists we wanted and a lot more. We were pleasantly surprised that the festival wasn't as "country"...more "country rock." We saw some big name artists like Troy Cassar-Daley, Beccy Cole, Guy Sebastian, The Sunny Cowgirls, The McClymonts, Felicity Urquhart, Lee Kernaghan, Casey Chambers, Bernard Fanning etc and also a lot of lesser known artists some of whom were fantastic. Ashleigh Dallas, Luke Dickens, Luke Austin, Anthony Taylor, Dan Thompson to name a few.
    The weather was hot but not as hot as it could have been. We spent most of the days out and about at airconditioned venues where possible. We used the aircon in the van only a couple of times as usually it cooled down at night.

    The free concerts at Toyota Park were great, especially the Starmaker Grand Final and Stars under the Stars.

    Spent a day at Nundle (about an hour's drive). After sightseeing the town and lunch at the pub, we went to a show (Richo's Roundup) at The Dag Sheepstation. It's a songwriters retreat and set up with a stage, bar, function room etc. We were entertained by 6 performers including Felicity Urquhart with cheese platters included for $20...great day!

    Too many highlights to mention, but the Golden Guitar Awards, and Stars Under The Stars were fantastic as we got to see all the stars perform. The girls tweeted us at Stars Under The Stars which made it up on the big screen. The McClymonts and Troy Cassar-Daley were amongst our favourites.

    Tamworth Country Music Festival

    January 19, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 36 °C

    The first day we headed out to the Longyard Hotel for a couple of free shows on the deck. It was all a bit loud but we were back a bit.

    Later we caught the bus back over for the opening show in Picentennial Park. Big night with lots of singers. Returned quite late to the Tourist village.Read more

    The Lions Duck Race.

    January 27, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    The Tamworth Lions club sell tickets for a duck in the race. After the cavalcade the ducks are let loose in the river. The first duck over the line wins its ticket holder $1000. I think my duck is still snagged in the weeds somewhere. People down the Peel River please keep a lookout for duck #1286. He might make an appearance somewhere for Easter.Read more

    Lee Kernaghan

    January 25, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    We headed out to TREC for two shows. The earlier one was Troy. After a wait of a bit over an hour we went back in for the Lee Kernaghan experience.

    Lee is one of the country legends of our time. His act is firmly pitched to the boys and gals from the bush. Utes diesel and dust. Fast cars tractors and everything country. Great show well produced with heaps of audio, (perhaps a bit much) and visual to overdose on.

    There was a brief appearance from his wife. A duet with his dad and a tribute to his grandparents. There were guests and some great country music.

    Tania Kernaghan dropped in to help sing the Williamson great, "A Bushman Can't Survive". Lee played the piano. I was very surprised that Lee even knew which end of a piano made the noise. :)
