Bush Uke Camp – Bivouac Junction

10 10 2017

A big crowd camped at Bivouac Junction over the Queen’s Birthday weekend – a true blue bush setting where the Fanning River meets the Burdekin. Lots of jamming, singing and dancing with some great little workshops thrown into the mix.

Great outback tucker was served up by Wendy and assisted by Meg.


Saturday night, open mic night, showcased a range of talent.
Who could forget Kent’s recital of “The Man from Ironbark” accompanied by Phil setting the scene with his wonderful impromptu painting.


We were all aboard the bus and in to Charters Towers to perform at “Eventide” on Sunday. A group of around 40 played up a storm for the residents who got into the swing and our tappers Carol and Pat tripped the light fantastic.


Lunch at “The Enterprise” hotel  and gig in the main bar finished off
our Charters Towers jaunt.


Kent, “the pied piper of uke” gathered the camp kids for a beginner session and they really got into strumming and chord changes. They loved it!


All this fun and a cake to boot!  Thanks Janine from “Janine’s Cake Art”

A big thanks to John and Wendy Lawn for organizing the event and to Wendy for her catering skills. So many others pulled their weight too to make this Ukulele Bush Camp a great success….what a fabulous group!
