Immerse Yourself

By Evie Lavers - February 25, 2016

 I live in a tiny town, the tallest in our state I might add. Tom Price. Where our Iron Ore paved, safe streets are filled with children’s laughter. The days are dry & the night’s sky is filled with millions of illuminating stars. It seems our residents communicate better, and more often, in Facebook Groups than in person and if you don’t contribute to team sports, you can live here pretty much non-existent. Once a year though the residents and visitors of Ashburton can discover the magnificent Karijini Experience. Think of it as an Outback Fringe Festival in the middle of the desert! Ya’ll can be immersed in the landscape, the culture and the sensual joys of the region.
 Now in its fourth year, Karijini Experience has cemented a reputation for delivering an intimate, authentic, once-in-a-lifetime event. Held on the traditional lands of the Banjima people, the festival is a celebration of environmental protection, connection & culture. Now, choosing what events to head to has been super hard! Especially when wine, food AND CRAFT are listed in the program. I have locked in one event though, a wine night with mah ladies at Moonrise Lounge…
The Moonrise Lounge is on Friday 22 April n is held in Karijini National Park. It boasts of spine chilling performances from Frank Yamma, Stephen and Alan Pigram. It’s BYO booze (Yay!) and there is a courtesy bus to and from Tom Price = WINNING! Now for anyone that complains the bush is boring, you better be getting a ticket for an opportunity to immerse yourself in our rich countries local culture!
I'm taking my camera, so if you're out there too make sure you say hi!
