Steve Richter - Opening Night of Sounds Outback Festival - Sunset Concert at Lizard Rock
What a whirlwind of a week!!! Myself & hubby Brad were offered an all expenses four day break in the outback pretty much on the spur of the moment....so we donned the backpacks, called my mum (our wonderful babysitting service)....although they don't require babysitting at this age, JUST SUPERVISION and made our way into the Tura New Music Studio in Perth where we boarded a bus, along with a bunch of other people, then took off for a fabulous weekend of new music in the outback!

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.

On arrival at the station we were shown to our accommodation in 'Tent City' where we had time for a brief tidy up before heading out for the opening of the Festival at Lizard Rock.

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!
