October 2014

Date: Friday 31 October
Venue: Wollombi village
Contact Details: 


For a fantastic Aussie bush experience, visit the historic town of Wollombi in the lower Hunter Valley, only 90 minutes north of Sydney and 60 minutes south west of Newcastle on Friday 31st October for the inaugural Boots'n'Ballgowns dinner dance!! Enjoy the historical roots of this town and be immersed in country hospitality as this rural retreat comes alive with our bush heritage. Traditional dances will be called by none other than the icons of traditional Aussie bush music, the legendary Bushwackers who are guaranteed to get the whole place jumping! In true bushie style, dinner will be a 2-course spit roast affair featuring beef from the bullock spit, lamb on the spit and all the trimmings, plus good old fashioned country home-made desserts, tea and coffee. A well stocked bar will be in order selling beer, wine, sparkling and spirits (please note that this is an over 18's event only and ID will be required). Bar tickets can be purchased both online with your tickets, and on the night.

The dress code? Boots and Ballgowns of course!!!

ACCOMMODATION If you're planing to make a weekend out of it, there's free unpowered camp sites at Wollomb Tavern (with toilets but no shower facilities) and a range of Wollombi accommodation, from luxury guesthouses to bush retreats.

TRANSPORT Book the mini-bus so you don't have to worry about driving. Only $10 per person for a return transfer within 10kms of Wollombi village. The bus will pick you up before Boots'n'Ballgowns, and return you home safely at the end of the night. Transfers can be booked online with your tickets. Tickets are only $65 per head.
