Learn to cook with bush tucker, weave with weeds and meet a koala during a fun-filled day of markets, environmental activities and toe-tapping music at this year’s Indigi Day Out on Saturday 6 June.
Redland City Council Deputy Mayor Alan Beard will open the event and said Indigi Day Out was an annual celebration of the rich environmental and cultural values of the Redlands.
“Celebrating World Environment Day this event will feature all the excitement of Indigi Day Out during the day, with the evening to then be filled with plenty of toe-tapping entertainment from the Folk Redlands Festival of Music,” Cr Beard said.
“This event has something for all ages, with environmental displays, market stalls, native plant sales, arts and craft, food and folk music, along with kids’ activities including native animal encounters, trackless train rides and face painting.
“Come along and sample the delicious food on offer from one of the market stalls, or pack your own picnic basket and simply sit back and enjoy the entertainment and the spectacular surrounds of the award-winning Redlands IndigiScapes Centre.”
Council’s environment and cultural spokesperson Cr Lance Hewlett said this year’s Folk Redlands Festival of Music would feature an impressive musical line-up, including Italian-born Australian country singer Clelia Adams and mountain music sensations the Hillbilly Goats.
“For those ready for some twilight toe-tapping, there’ll be a barbecue and free bush dance in the evening with music by Stone The Crows,” he said.
Entry to Indigi Day Out is free. Onsite parking is available.
