In 2000, a brand-new festival in a tiny town at the foothills of The Otways was launched. Attracting around 500 visitors in its first year, it was created to lift the spirits of locals and give city dwellers a chance to experience the heart and soul of country life.
Birregurra Festival and Art Show is not-for-profit volunteer run event and is the major source of fundraising for local community groups in Birregurra. The Festival occurs in the town’s main street, in Birregurra Park, in and around Birregurra Hall and in properties adjacent to the main street. The festival has grown from humble beginnings into an important date on the state’s calendar attracting over 15,000 people from around the state. Lauded for its affordability, it’s one of the few events in the state where families can enjoy a fun filled day out for little more than a gold coin donation each as the music program and many of the activities are free. Across the festival, local traders showcase their offerings and community groups such as the Primary School, Kindergarten, Football and Netball Club, Historic Society, Landcare, Lions Club, Tennis Club, Recreation Reserve and Men’s Motor Enthusiast group fundraise for their own activities.
On Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th of October this year, that same little volunteer run event, Birregurra Festival and Art Show, turns 20, with over 15,000 visitors expected to visit from all over the state of Victoria.

Spring Wedding season is upon us and the results are in from over 1000 bucks party packages purchased by Big Boys Club (BBC) clients! No surprise – blokes love a bit of action when they’re at a bucks party. It can take a lot of convincing to get a guy down the aisle, but the idea of a wild night with his best mates to wave goodbye to bachelordom requires no such twisted arm.
So how do Aussie blokes like to celebrate their final hours before throwing away the key to the old ball and chain? Beer? Certainly. Babes and boobs? No doubt. BBC looked into what lads really love to do for their bucks party and the results may surprise you.
