Surry Hills Festival 2012

Come join Sydney’s hippest postcode for a celebration of everything creative, fun and funky. The annual Surry Hills Festival returns to its newly revitalised home in Prince Alfred Park on Saturday 27 October 2012.

Get to hear the sounds of Australia’s freshest up and coming and established bands and musos. Wander the revamped commons among crazy art installations, theatre performances and unexpected kooky acts and happenings and make sure you check out the Surry Hills Dog Show and Sydney Rides Festival set amongst the trees.

Peruse eclectic markets and pick up one-of-a-kind goodies. Dine out on gourmet food stalls whilst discovering new tastes and flavours. And be creatively inspired and surprised by Sydney’s most iconic and eccentric suburb. Alternatively just lounge on the grass and soak up the atmosphere with a cool drink in hand from one of the many themed bars onsite..

Best of all feel good that funds raised on the day go to the Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre to run community development programs for the local area.

Try These New Alaskan Tours in 2012

Learn the ropes from an Iditarod champion:
2011 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race Champion John Baker is teaming up with the Alaska Native Heritage Centre in Anchorage to teach visitors about the state’s official sport, dog mushing. Team Baker Tours presents the history of the sled dog from its historical significance among indigenous Arctic people to modern day recreational racing. Visitors also get to play with puppies, learn how to harness a team, enjoy a dog cart ride and hear stories from veteran Iditarod mushers. The presentations will begin on May 6, 2012.

New Ketchikan tour teaches wilderness survival:
Travellers can learn how to survive in the Alaska wilderness and take part in a research project to help sustain the Alaska seafood industry. The Alaskan Wilderness Survival tour, offered by Allen Marine Tours in Ketchikan, takes guests to a remote island for a short guided hike through an old-growth forest where they are taught survival skills such as how to build a shelter, identify wild edibles and light a fire. Back aboard the expedition catamaran, guests will pursue the green crab, an invasive species that has become a threat to the local ecosystem. Travellers will haul sampling crab pots, look for evidence of green crabs and record findings for the University of Alaska.

So Frenchy So Chic in the Park

This summer, So Frenchy, So Chic returns to Melbourne. This time it’s not as an eclectic CD compilation or even an intimate gig at the Prince of Wales – it’s an afternoon of music, food and wine on Sunday 15th January 2012. French style.

So Frenchy, So Chic in the Park is a one day celebration of the new French music performed against the magical backdrop of Werribee Park Mansion. Think of it as a day in the French countryside – the wine is chilled; the crepes and macaroons are perfectly Parisian; the performers sing on stages hemmed by rolling lawns and flowerbeds while big trees offer shade from the sun. Best of all, the fine tunes floating through the summer air are from the best acts of the current French music scene with over a thousand shows between them: Fefe, Moriarty, Asa and Nouvelle Vague.

Tickets to So Frenchy, So Chic in the Park are on sale from Friday 23rd September at www.ticketmaster.com or www.cartellmusic.com.au.
