The Norco Pauls Milk Beaudesert Country Music Festival is bringing the boys back to the bush… 

Norco Pauls Milk, in conjunction with the Beaudesert Shire Council is working together to bring the Beaudesert Country Music Festival to the region.  With the support of some of the countries top artists including local boy Rick Price and Stanthorpe born James Blundell, Norco Pauls Milk are truly bringing the boys back to the bush.

Understanding the hardship of living in a drought stricken region, other country artists including The Wolverines and Louella Widt and The Blue Heelers will be there to ensure a successful event for the locals of Beaudesert, and those country music fans making the trip out to Beaudesert to enjoy the entertainment.

Mayor Ron Munn believes that by having this event take place in the Shire it will help to boost the local economy through the influx of country music fans that will travel to Beaudesert for the Festival and has invited all country music lovers to enjoy the country hospitality of Beaudesert on the 15th March.

With a crowd of over 2000 people expected to attend from the Lismore, Northern NSW, Gold Coast, Brisbane and Toowoomba regions this festival promises to be a lot of fun for the whole family.

The local drought appeal will be the official charity for the Festival, and community groups will be at the Festival to sell products and raise funds for this very worthwhile appeal.

The Kooralbyn International Resort has offered a festival and accommodation package, which includes shuttle buses from the Resort to the Festival at very family friendly prices.  Camping is also available at the showgrounds.

Tickets will be available after 18th January through Sun FM, the Beaudesert Shire Customer Service Centres (in Jimboomba, Tamborine and Beaudesert), Kooralbyn Resort, Sanity Music Stores or by phoning 55278688 or visiting the web site – www.austcountry.com.au
