Australia Day @ The Farm 2020 - Fun, food and fantastic Aussie acts!

Get excited about Australia Day at Bella Vista Farm in 2020 – an incredible free event with fun for everyone!

Celebrate with an awesome line-up of entertainment featuring The Black Sorrows with Vika & Linda Bull, Simply Bushed, The Voice’s Diana Rouvas and everyone’s favourite Aussie children’s act – The Wiggles!

Dauntless Movement Crew will be also performing their fire breathing, acrobatic daredevil stunts and everyone can enjoy rides, activities, food trucks and so much more.

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said she is ecstatic with the entertainment line-up which caters for all ages.

“From The Black Sorrows with Vika & Linda Bull to The Wiggles - we definitely have sensational music for everyone to enjoy,” Mayor Byrne said.

“This is a real win for families wanting to celebrate Australia Day with some iconic Australian acts.

“2020 promises to be our biggest, most fun, wiggliest Australia Day ever – and I look forward to spending it at beautiful Bella Vista Farm with our residents and their friends and families,” Mayor Byrne said.

Entry is free, with free onsite parking also available.

Cancellation of Fireworks

As a mark of respect to this nation-wide tragedy, Council has decided to cancel its Australia Day fireworks display. We will stand in solidarity with our fellow communities and councils who have been affected by this disaster, to remember those who have tragically lost their lives and to pay tribute to those brave firefighters, emergency service personnel and volunteers who continue to battle the blazes. For more information, read the Mayor's statement here.

To support those who have been affected by the bush fire crisis, please bring a gold coin donation with you to The Farm on Australia Day. With the help of the Rotary, these donations will be collected and donated to Blazeaid, one of the registered charities on the Rural Fire Service website. Blazeaid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia to help rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed after natural disasters.
