Support & Celebrate Our Heroes'

With so many affected by droughts and fires like never before across our beautiful country we wanted to show some love to the families affected by these natural disasters and to those HEROES putting themselves on the line out there fighting to protect people and native wildlife.
So we are also offering the chance to donate a ticket to affected families around the area and are fundraising to support our amazing “Firies” in the Rural Fire Service serving the Queanbeyan Region of New South Wales including Braidwood, protecting us all and our land and also the compassionate volunteers at Wildcare Queanbeyan who rescue, raise, rehabilitate and release native wildlife in the NSW area surrounding the ACT.

A great cause and a great way to show our gratitude and appreciation and whilst we are running entertainment on this weekend we will never lose sight of our goal and to help our fellow Australians in a time of uncertainty and great need and to protect and rehabilitate the Wildlife in affected areas.
