BONY MOUNTAIN CANCELLED 2020-

We are all devastated by this COVID 19- chaos- my focus has been totally on the Festival- it is the highlight of my year! and it is my baby- my apologies to everyone who was coming -has booked- or looking forward to our wonderful event. You will all have recieved a notification we are contacting everyone- I do thank you all for your support- and love you all- without you-there would be no Bony Mountain.  My knee surgery all done- so I am recouping from that - and bitterly dissapointed we cannot run our wonderful Festival this year. But I suspect this Virus could run right into Xmas? it is all so unpredictable!  Stay safe everyone- & I look forward to welcoming you all back to Bony Mountain 2021.

HOPING FOR EASTER IN THE BUSH!

We are into all our winter preparations now-please note-change of Festival email- (normaoharamurphy@gmail.com ) even with no Festival-it all needs to be done regardless-but our Volunteer team were coming from Victoria- so we have lost them as well -which was a huge blow. Hoping for 2021 our  Artists will all be the same- but must all be confirmed. Our large group of Volunteers coming up this winter-  to help with clean up jobs- some gardening- so much to do really-and winter is the best time here. But sadly that is all on hold too. We have had good rain-everything is looking great-only. Our building project last year was Blacksmith Shop and-this year our Ukulele Shack- or more like a Gazebo- we had a big lot of students last year-we love our Ukulele music!  Our band of newcomers all onstage with (Mick) last year-always a big hit!  Our Program will be much the same for 2021.  EASTER IN THE BUSH!  hoping we can go with this ! for 2021-  depending on COVID & where we are with that in 2021-  dates will be - from April 1st-til April 5th.  TBA

 Thank you all once again for coming last year- in the middle of that dreadful drought- you still came- in dry dusty conditions! the true Aussie spirit! All green and magnificent again this year! and we already have quite a few already booked in and I realise a lot of people plan their year around our Festival. I know so many of you are so looking forward to coming!  So rest assured Bony Mountain will be on track for 2021- our Program will be the same!-  I myself am staying positive -hopefully it will have run its course well & truly before then! Australia is certainly looking good compared to most! and Qld is looking great!   Some fabulous music and great entertainment lined up for 2021. And remember you can always just let us know your coming! and pay at the gate- if you are not sure about commiting too early ! we have fifty acres-so plenty of room.
