Monday 17 September 2007:
For anyone wanting to explore the Tamworth region and find the hidden gems deep in the corners of the district, now is the perfect opportunity as the Woolbrook Community Development Committee host the Woolbrook Blue Tongue Spring Festival on Sunday 30 September 2007.

Sitting on the very edge of the Tamworth region, the village of Woolbrook has a huge family fun day planned with an array of activities and entertainment throughout the day including goat races, McDonald River Working Dog Club Yard Dog Trails and free, live entertainment on the main stage.

"The event will be a fantastic community effort with all groups in the village and surrounding towns invited to take part in the Festival,"
said Ms Rebel Thomson, General Manager, Tourism Tamworth. "This provides a wonderful opportunity to get out and about, take a gorgeous country drive across the tablelands and see some of the other areas in the region that are not quite as well known."

The Festival will be held in the vicinity of the Woolbrook Hall with the fun an excitement kicking off from 10:00am to 5:00pm. The kids are sure to be kept occupied with a jumping castle, trikes and face painting on-site, while the 'kids at heart', can enjoy a leisurely Sunday afternoon at the licences bar. Food will also be available from a variety of stalls, or if you're after something a little different you may want to tempt your taste buds with some Wigay Bush Tucker.

The cultural heritage will continue with a feature Dinggutti aboriginal display and dance while European traditions will be on show with the inclusion of the Australian Draught Horse Society Field Day [pending quarantine regulations for equine influenza].

This event is proudly coordinated by the Woolbrook Community Development Committee, a part of Tamworth Regional Council with assistance provided by Tourism Tamworth and Tamworth Regional Council.
