Sunday 19th February

An installation and fun day for the whole family when the surrounds of the Gallery are converted into a Beach, complete with Sand, Surfboards, Hot Dogs and Hawaiian shirts.

Bungendore will become a beach for the day on Sunday 19th February from 10am to 3pm when Bungendore Wood Works Gallery presents "BEACHED IN BUNGENDORE."

The day's activities will include: an historic surfboard display from the collection of the Gallery's Exhibition Coordinator; an actual beach of sand imported all the way from Stockton, near Newcastle; dance demonstrations and lessons on how to do the Surfers Stomp, the Twist and the Limbo, all favourites of the golden days of surfing, the 1960s.

Dance and sing along to the sounds of the Beach Boys, King of the Surf Guitar Dick Dale, the Surfaris, Jan & Dean and the great Australian surf rockers The Atlantics, Little Pattie, GangaJang, Richard Clapton, The Deltones and many others.

A special feature will be demonstrations and lessons on Fire Twirling (without fire of course) for all comers.

The kids, young and old will be able to play in the sand dune, dig with buckets and spades, and take a splash in the mini-ocean.

And for the hungry beachgoer there will be hot dogs, fizzy drinks and ice creams catered by the 1st Bungendore Scout Group. The trees will be alive with the sights of Hawaiian surf shirts, wear your favourite surf or Hawaiian shirt and the best will win a prize.

This will be a fun event for all the family so come along any time through the day to Bungendore Beach on the Kings Highway in Bungendore Village.
