The Undara Outback Country Rock and Blues Festival, was an absolutely amazing experience. It was fantastic to share such a special time with so many talented musicians, who are also some wonderful friends. The Undara Experience with our performers lava tube tour was an additional breath taking experience….almost spiritual! Thank you to all the staff and fans who made all us performers, a part of the Undara family. Undara a special place….a special experience!
