Dingo Serenade at Australian Dingo Foundation


Are you looking for a unique event to attend on Saturday, 9 February 2019? How does a little competition sound to you? Once a year, Dingo Discovery Sanctuary, Research and Education Centre, a.k.a., Australian Dingo Foundation, hosts a Dingo Serenade night where they encourage you to try to persuade the dingoes to howl.

Now, if you have ever attended one of Dingo Discovery Sanctuary & Research Centre's educational and fun dingo encounters, then you know Lyn Watson and her group of volunteers do not encourage you to rock the boat when visiting their precious dingo population. So now you understand just how special this once-a-year event truly is.

Lyn explained that most people make as much noise or try to mimic a dingo's howl to encourage the dingoes to howl. Apparently, this is not an easy task, but for those who are successful, it is one of the most beautiful spectacles you will ever witness as a lone howl quickly turns into a chorus.

The Dingo Serenade is the main event, however, Lyn promises there will be food trucks there, serving Australian favourites, local indigenous mobs, Mirri & Wayapa Wuurrk, live music by Skip Sail & Blair Venn, as well as, Dean Richards & special guests. Plus, you will have the privilege of watching the film premiere of Mirrigang "Dingo" Fashion parade. There will also be original Indigenous art fashions and an Indigenous art gallery as an added bonus. In addition, there is a "gorgeous silent auction" going on as well. Check out Australian Dingo Foundation's Facebook page for more details on the silent auction item.

Visitors must be quiet while meeting dingo puppies so as not to unintentionally cause the adult dingoes to howl.

Before the start of Dingo Serenade and all the festivities, a maximum of 20 people per session can sit down with Lyn and her volunteers as they educate you and show-off their nominated ambassador dingoes' abilities. It's a worthwhile experience! You can find my article on my dingo puppies encounter here.
