The 2018 Australian Celtic Festival
May 04, 2018
The 2018 (3 - 6 May) Festival will honour Brittany, Galicia & Asturias
Every year crowds descend on Glen Innes (population 9000) for the Australian Celtic Festival. They are attracted by the unique Celtic experience, the opportunity to meet with friends and to enjoy famous country hospitality.
The Festival attracts clans, cultural groups, dancers and performers from around the world. Visitors experience Celtic music and dance at four stages at the Festival’s main venue, the Australian Standing Stones, and in many venues around town.
The Australian Standing Stones are an array of granite monoliths often shrouded in autumn mists. You definitely don’t want to miss rising at dawn and to listen to the haunting skirl of pipes amidst the stones.
The four day Festival features entertainment that includes a street parade, kirking of the Tartan, massed pipe bands, re-enactment village, buskers, workshops, yard dog trials, children’s entertainment, a fun run, dancing, flag raising ceremonies, poet breakfasts, market stalls and Celtic foods.
Each year’s Festival celebrates one of the Celtic nations.

Perfect flying conditions and a perfect day to introduce our visitors to the New England.
CAGIT Hunters - COME AND GET IT!!
September 29, 2016
Last weekend John and Kaddie flew the hornet down to Moruya to collect the CAGIT (come and get it trophy). It took them four days and they traveled 868nm in 13.6hrs
Thanks to the fellow CAGIT Hunters that make this adventure possible!
Now we are calling all CAGIT Hunters to Come And Get It (The Trophy) - come for a trip to the beautiful New England. The airstrip is in top condition and we would love to have some fellow flying enthusiasts stay with us at Sharron Park.
We stayed at Sharron Park for 2 nights with 2 teenage boys and were welcomed with good, old fashioned country hospitality. Cathy and John were generous with their time, their local history and nothing was too much trouble. We had a meal there and Cathy's cooking was excellent, all fresh produce much of it grown in the home garden. Her crockery and attention to most minor detail was wonderful; it made me feel very spoilt. John's breakfast was amazing; no need for lunch. The boys were encouraged to roam the place but also enjoyed relaxing with the wifi. We'd love to go back some time.
Cathryn and John welcomed us to their farm and provided superior accommodation which was matched by their hospitality. We stayed in the King Room and if I could have taken the bed with me I would have. It was amazingly comfortable, and the wood fire kept our room wonderfully warm through the night. The hot pot of tea and delicious cake Cathryn gave us upon our arrival was most welcome. Free WiFi and Television were there if we needed them. We stayed again 16 days later on our return home with the added anticipation that we knew we would have an excellent night's sleep and wake up to a wonderful breakfast. We cannot recommend Sharron Park highly enough.
Truly can't praise the Sharron Park experience enough! We only discovered it by chance, wish we could have stayed longer. Food, wine, hospitality.....super
Perfect accommodation and food. Great company. Thank you so much.
