To see and do at fes­ti­val

Benalla Ensign - - Front Page -

The Be­nalla Avi­a­tion Mu­seum is open both week­ends of the fes­ti­val and is a unique dis­play to have in a small ru­ral city.

The mu­seum of­fers a fas­ci­nat­ing look at Aus­tralia’s mil­i­tary air train­ing his­tory on the site of a for­mer RAAF pi­lot train­ing school.

Vicky the Truck was parked up at the li­brary of­fer­ing young­sters an in­ter­ac­tive look at why Vic­to­ria is a great state to call home.

The Devenish Com­mu­nity held a memo­rial ser­vice hon­our­ing those who served Aus­tralia in con­flicts dur­ing the past 100 years — For more on that see our Re­mem­brance Day fea­ture on pages 17 to 21.

The open­ing week­end of the fes­ti­val also fea­tured a host of open gar­dens, the Be­nalla Mi­grant Camp: Short Film Pre­miere, the Game, Set, Match Ten­nis Tour­na­ment and much more.

The fes­ti­val con­tin­ues this week, fin­ish­ing up this week­end.

To find out what’s on, pick up a Be­nalla Fes­ti­val brochure from the Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre on Mair St, from Be­nalla Ru­ral City Coun­cil or The En­sign of­fice on Car­rier St.

One for the kids: Vicky the truck pro­vided an in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence for Be­nalla’s young­sters to find out what is great about our state.

In­sight: Mi­grants used the crates their pos­ses­sions had been shipped in as makeshift ta­bles.

Orig­i­nal: The Tiger Moth on dis­play at the Avi­a­tion Mu­seum has had all its orig­i­nal in­stru­ments re­stored.

Plenty on of­fer: The Be­nalla Avi­a­tion Mu­seum.
