Whilst this film is now heading towards its 30th anniversary, Broken Hill has claimed it as its own, with stage productions abounding all around the world, it is imperative that it lives on in the fabulous LGBT event Broken Hill's delights us with: the annual Broken Heel Festival.
In a fabulous celebration in September, the festival amazes people with three stages, and features an incredible and diverse line-up of comedy, cabaret, and themed fun activities. Click HERE for the website
This fun festival incorporates chainmail, re-enacted mediaeval periods, costumed battles, knightings and many performances from the mediaeval times. You will feel like you have stepped back in time.
Along with all of this revelry are amazing ye olde food vendors. Come along and see if you can find your knight in shining armour. The event is held in July in Caboolture north of Brisbane, at the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology. Click here for the website.
Not only racing boats but these boats must also be made entirely out of beer (or soft drink) cans and they come in all manner of shapes and sizes. The race is one when somebody finds the hidden object and returns to the shore.
Not only the sailors but the general public getting on all the fun with flour bombs and many pirate-inspired tactics to fight off the other boats, in true Aussie fashion, anything goes. Click here for the website
The largest event is the battle of the boats where vessels, which are built on top of four-wheel-drive vehicles, into combat with each other using water cannons and flower bombs. Held in August each year. Click here for the website.
On the way, they will have to undertake limbo bars, a water course with sand trap and various hurdles. You would definitely want to have a good relationship and one that is not challenged by ultimately being dumped in a muddy pool of water. Click here for website.
