'Touch', 'Love Somebody', 'No Lies', 'Tucker's Daughter', 'Bow River',
'When The War Is Over', 'Girls On The Avenue', 'Capricorn Dancer',
'I Am An Island', 'April Sun In Cuba', 'Are You Old Enough', 'That's
When I Think Of You', 'Run To Paradise' and 'Boys Will Be Boys' to
name just a few.
To cater for so many hits, the concert will run earlier than usual with
gates opening at 1pm, music from 1.30pm and Noiseworks off stage
at 8.10pm to enable patrons to return home at a reasonable hour on
This classic Oz rock concert was announced at five other wineries
around Australia late last year to an over whelming response, with
some venues selling out and others close to it.
More than 7000 tickets were sold to the Hunter Valley concert in
just three days. It is clear music fans everywhere have embraced this
great line-up, and with another three concerts in Brisbane, Perth and
Bowral recently announced ...let there be rock.
With these events Roundhouse Entertainment, promoters of A Day
on the Green, are proud to continue their decade-long support of our
great Australian artists. Centennial Winery promises to be one giant
sing-a-long of home-grown hits.
The concert will be all general admission, so with good food and
wine and your favourite deck chair, a magnificent location, classic
rock all day long and tickets at just $89, it's going to be a sensational
value-for-money party day.

AUTUMN IS A SPECIAL TIME FOR VIEWING
GARDENS IN THE SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS, WHICH
IS FAMOUS FOR ITS COOL CLIMATE TREES, MANY
OF WHICH WILL BE SHOWING THEIR AUTUMN
COLOURS TO PERFECTION.
WITH THIS IN mind is not surprising that Friends of the the Southern
Highlands Botanic Gardens Inc will conduct the Town and Country
Gardens weekend on the weekend on April 28 and 29.
There will be seven open gardens varying from large country
properties to town gardens, from Italian water features to a garden of
Australian native plants.
There are several park-like gardens featured in the weekend
showcase including one with its own vineyard and cellar door, another
with a magnificent collection of maples, many of which have been
grown from seed and imported by the owners.
Another garden features views to the Sydney Harbour Bridge from a
sloping site near the summit of Mount Gibraltar.
A special feature of the weekend will be a huge plant stall where
cool climate plants will be available for sale including rare maples,
unusual shrubs, ground covers, perennials, succulents, and daffodil
bulbs from award-winning grower, Tony Davis.
Take advantage of the weekend to visit these spectacular private
gardens, which are rarely open to the public.
Entry for all seven gardens is $25 per person or $5 to view an
individual garden. School children are free.
All proceeds of the weekend will go to the Southern Highlands
Botanic Gardens Incorporated to help finance the development of the
newly approved site in Bowral.
