High­lands Bush­fest on again

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

FROM fly-ty­ing to speed shear­ing, the very best of the Cen­tral High­lands will be on show at this week­end’s High­lands Bush­fest.

The fourth an­nual bush­fest will be held at the Both­well Recre­ation Ground on Satur­day and Sun­day.

About 90 stalls will show­case the re­gion’s fish­ing, hunt­ing, camp­ing, out­door recre­ation, and much more.

Cen­tral High­lands Mayor Loueen Trif­fitt said the event was gath­er­ing mo­men­tum.

“We’ve had around 4000 through the gate each year, and we’re hop­ing to in­crease that this year,” Cr Trif­fitt said

“It brings peo­ple from all over Tas­ma­nia and some main­lan­ders, so it’s quite a big oc­ca­sion.

“It’s be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar ... a lot of peo­ple look for­ward to the week­end.”

Other high­lights of the High­lands Bush­fest will in­clude work­ing dog dis­plays and an­i­mal nurs­eries.

There will also be plenty of free en­ter­tain­ment and ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren.

Hook, Line and Sinker hosts An­drew Hart and Nick Duigan have again been re­cruited to MC the event.

Gates open from 9am-4pm on Satur­day and 9am-3pm on Sun­day. En­try is by gold coin do­na­tion.
