We will rock you
The Centenary Rocks! Festival celebrates the "best of the west". This free family-friendly event is in its final year so don't miss out. Enjoy live music, rides, side-show alley and heaps of stalls. Go along and see wildlife shows, lego building, an animal farm and lots more.

The highlights on stage include the talented Casey Barnes, Tim Gaze (voted in top 20 of Australia's Best Guitarists) and The Soul Men (my favourite Blues Brothers tribute band). On Sunday, Aussie legend Ross Wilson will perform: and rock band Dragon will take to the stage for the grand finale.
