|Festival of Small Halls - Moonie|
|Date||Sat 27th Oct 2018|
|Acclaimed Canadian multi-instrumentalists Madison Violet and rising Kimberley star Harry Jakamarra will join the Festival of Small Halls tour this Spring, playing 20 community halls across outback Queensland and New South Wales throughout October and November.
The tour kicks off in Rocky Creek, and will dip into inland New South Wales before it works its way through the Queensland outback, finally finishing in Felton, where just under 300 people call home.
Madison Violet are musical chameleons. Their voices blend together, symbiotically, like family as if they were born to sing the same songs. And over the past decade and a half, the pair have taken to genre-bending, moving effortlessly from folk to pop to electronic to Americana.
The Juno-nominated duo met in Toronto in 1999, only to find out that their fathers sat next to each other in high school, nearly 2000 kilometres away.
|E&E Waste Hell of the West Triathlon and GTH+ Super Saturday|
|Date||Sat 9th Feb 2019 to Sun 10th Feb 2019|
|The Hell of the West Triathlon is a long course triathlon consisting of a two kilometre swim in the mighty Macintyre River, an 80 kilometre "dead flat" cycle along the Barwon Highway heading west towards, St George and a 20 kilometre 'hot as hell' run along the picturesque Macintyre River (which consists of three loops).
2019 sees the continuance of the GTH+ Super Saturday which involves the Hell Kids Triathlon, the Firestarter Triathlon (enticer length) and a five kilometre and 10 kilometre Gundy Inferno Charity Runs.
The iconic Queensland long course triathlon event is described as the "toughest triathlon in Queensland" and one of the longest running triathlons in Australia.
Temperatures of up to 38 degrees can be expected at this time of year and this heat is what the athletes love. Many athletes use the triathlon as part of their ironman training sessions, some athletes use it as their first long course triathlon and many athletes compete as part of a team, just to add to the spirit of sportsmanship.
It is a 'bucket list' triathlon for all triathletes world-wide.
