Spirit Of The Bush Balladeers Muster - Boondooma
The fifth day of the week-long Spirit Of The Bush Balladeers & Heritage Muster will be held at Boondooma Homestead at 8262 Durong-Mundubbera Road, Boondooma today. This popular annual campout week features lots of Australia's top bush balladeers and poets (51 will be appearing at the Muster this year) along with walk-up artists. The Muster routinely attracts 700 to 800 caravanners plus day-trippers, and in addition to bucketloads of non-stop great music there'll also be great camp oven meals, a licensed bar, BBQ, stalls, displays of vintage cars and engines, photography and historical items. Tickets are $100 for the full seven days of the festival, or $15 if you just want a day pass for today only (children under 15 are free). Bush camping is available on-site and can be booked by phoning the Homestead's caretakers on (07) 4168-0159. You can also get a full program of this year's Muster in PDF format by clicking here.

BYO 20km Horse Ride - Benarkin
Horsetrax Oz will be holding a BYO 20km horse ride through the Benarkin Trail Reserve today for a maximum of four riders. The ride will depart opposite the historic Benarkin Store at 10:00am, and travel along Benarkin forestry tracks to the Bora Ring for a smoko at the Rail Trail. The cost of the ride is $15 (to cover insurance) and participants should bring along their own smoko, or cash for the Benarkin Store so they can buy some before the ride departs. The ride is suitable for advanced intermediate riders and has some hills. It's also a walk-only ride, and because the trail has some sections on gravel road, boots or shoes are recommended. Boookings are essential and payment is required prior to the day via Paypal or EFT. Visitors can park their horse floats at the Blackbutt Showgrounds in Bowman Road. More details? Phone Melanie on 0417-634-981.
