Presented by the Blackberry Jam Bush Band: Blackberry Jam is renowned for its fun, entertaining bush dances and entertainment for all occasions.  Entertainment can include their Emily the Emu character, didgeridoo, whip cracking and saw playing and many rollicking Australiana tunes and songs.  Blackberry Jam has performed for dances to the delight of many, many thousands of groups and organisations over the past 15 years.


The Bush Dance promises to be an unforgettable evening filled with lively music, traditional Australian dances, and the camaraderie of friends and neighbours.  This event is an opportunity for us to come together as a community and celebrate our rich cultural heritage.

The night will feature live music, experienced dance callers, and a welcoming atmosphere for attendees of all ages and dance abilities.  Whether you’re an expert dancer or simply looking to have a good time, the Bush Dance has something for everyone.
