Bicentennial Park place to celebrate

AUSTRALIAN flags flashed up everywhere at Bicentennial Park on Saturday as the Australia Day Concert got under way at noon.

About 1000 people gathered in the park, avoiding the middle area to seek shade underneath nearby trees.

The concert featured headline act Bucko and Champs as well as Morgan Evans, Tamara Stewart, Jonny Taylor, Kaylens Rain, the Davidson Brothers, Blake Saban and Steve Passfield.
