This quite amazing structure was in the park area next to the library in Bendigo for the Commonwealth Games. It is built entirely of bamboo. There were several shows conducted by the Melbourne Fringe Festival group, but at other times, children were allowed to play on all the equipment. It was a really amazing structure, so don’t miss out on clicking on the photo to see a larger view of it.
Bendigo held a Cultural Festival for the Commonwealth Games on Thursday 23rd March 2006. The Central Goldfields Bush Poets, of whom Ric is the Vice-President, conducted a show there which exposed Bendigo residents and visitors to Bush Poetry and traditional Australian music. Many of the members of the club performed and Ric performed a solo of a traditional Australian song, “The Banks of the Condamine”.
