Bundanoon Highland Gathering
Monday 7 April 2014
The 37th annual Highland Gathering Festival is where Bundanoon becomes Brigadoon for a day. If you're looking for the perfect family fun day out then head to Australia's premier Scottish Highland Gathering - Bundanoon is Brigadoon. Scotland, with a wee bit of Aussie flavour.
The gathering is a non-profit, registered charity event that readily distributes the funds from the day to local charities and volunteer groups that assist the organisers in the administration of the gathering.
There's a street parade with marching pipe bands, Clan Societies, children's decorated floats, The Tartan Warriors - lifting the Bundanoon Stones of Manhood and 'Highlander' Celtic Rock Band. Over 120 speciality crafts, souvenirs and food stalls.
At the oval experience; massed pipes and drums, highland and Scottish country dancing, traditional and not-so-traditional highland games along with Swordplay - the School of Theatrical Fencing and Stage Combat and the Southern Highlands Kennel and Obedience Club.
