Bush Balladeers Place for Bungendore Country Music Muster

Apr 5, 2016 by

Opening BBPBungendore Country Music Muster have utilised a Veolia Mulwaree Trust grant of $11,600 to construct a Bush Balladeers Place in Bungendore Park.

The Bush Balladeers Place commemorates the contribution by Australian Bush Balladeers to Australian folk law. The feature acknowledges environmental aspects, Aboriginal and European ecological remains and the village of Bungendore. The structure consists of a paved area, a gazebo, a stone wall for seating and other stone walls of various heights for plaques of recognition. The completed stone walls form the shape of a musical cleft. There is also a large rock with metal pages attached which tell the history of Australian bush balladeers.

Mr Winston Masters, president of the Bungendore Country Music Muster said “the Bush Balladeer Place will bring more visitors to Bungendore, particularly at the Bungendore Country Muster Musical Festival held the first week in February each year. It is a quiet place with shade and shelter for local and visitor relaxation and a place for outdoor music concerts.

The Veolia Mulwaree Trust is proud to support the Bungendore Country Music Muster with the construction of the Bush Balladeer Place and looks forward to the Bungendore community and visitors enjoying the commemorative area for many years to come.
