New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Enjoy a day in the bush, less than 15 minutes from the CBD
The Majura Valley Bush Festival will be held just minutes from Majura Park Shopping Centre (and IKEA), further up Majura Road. Entry is via this end of Majura Road only. The cost to get in is $10 per car, or $5 if you are walking or on a motorbike. When you get there, it will be a day of celebration of the local bush community. Enjoy Majura Valley meats as you tuck into a beef or lamb burger, taste the Mount Majura Wine, enjoy a beer or sit down over a Devonshire tea or coffee with the Country Women's Association. There will be displays of whip cracking, shearing, wood chopping, whip making and saddlery. There will be equestrian to watch, pony rides for the kids, a merry go around, a Cobb and Co coach ride and a petting zoo.
The history of the area will be shown with displays of heritage carriages, the original Majura Post Office and the Majura Valley heritage church/hall.
Gates open at 9:30am and close at 4:30pm.
* All money raised from rides on the day will be donated to Friends of Brain Injured Children, which supports 55 families in the Canberra region.
