Our destination was Wogarno Station, Mt Magnet, which is approximately 7 hours drive... that was refreshing in itself, as we got to know everyone on board, managed a bit of shut eye and basically relaxed.
That was way cool - we all sat back on camp chairs, whilst sipping on complementary champagne, listening to the beautiful sounds of the Nova Ensemble whilst the sun set over the brilliant red rock.
The rest of the weekend we were watered, fed and fully entertained by the fantastic muso's, crew and organisers of this amazing event. We both slept like we hadn't slept for a week - must have been the fresh air.....nothing to do with the red wine at all, I'm sure!
We experienced the highlights of Wogarno Station through a myriad of sights and sounds. There were many unplanned surprises during our time away which certainly added to the whole experience, one of which was a twelve year old boy up there with his parents - well he got to jam with the sax player and then was able to perform in the shearing shed. We also spent a good few hours hanging out with the musicians and getting to know a lot more about them, meeting a lot of interesting people from all walks of life, admiring the tin sculptures which were dotted all over the grounds of the station and marvelling at the Bungarra's and other wildlife around the place.
Aaaah I must say I really enjoyed the Sounds Outback Festival and hope to go again next year!
