Getting a bit worn out? Time for a short break perhaps? Then why not head to Kununurra in the East Kimberley for Ord Valley Muster from Friday 16 to Sunday 25 May 2014.

The 14th Muster is going to be a huge! With almost 30 concerts lined up, and masses of activities for attendees from the Kimberley region, around Australia and even across the world, it's no wonder this event has become one of the finest event in the national festival calendar.

There are lots of happenings over the 10 days so make sure you have a look at their full program via the Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster website. Make sure you purchase your tickets early to your favourite events to avoid missing out! And follow them on Facebook for their latest updates.

The following pages list my highlights of the Muster so read on to get a taste of what to expect.
