Since colonisation in 1788 and being so far from the rest of the known world
Australians had to
become innovative and resourceful especially in this land of extremes.
Australia's Living History, a major show attraction at this years Show takes you
back to these times with live demonstrations, stories and displays of the little
known or forgotten parts of our past.
"The show will pay tribute to the pioneers (men & women) that made Australia
and the Outback what it is today" said John Jewell the attractions owner. Our
2004 tour will make our history come alive and our performance will be based
around that theme
We have a unique, entertaining and lighthearted approach about our early
history. With live demonstrations showing important facets of how we lived
from the 1800's to Federation. The colourful and interesting display in itself is an
attraction, live demonstrations and our wonderful working dogs and ducks as a
backdrop is a proven great crowd pleaser said John. The kids love us, their
parents remember and our seniors reminisce.
Most of the demonstrations involve volunteers (young and not so young) from
the crowd. The public enjoy this and it adds another dimension to an already
exciting and interesting show.
Australia's Living History performance is continuous throughout the day
(Something is happening all day) with scheduled demonstration times, so every
time you pass by you will see something different happening.
We include parts of your local history in our stories to make them even more
interesting John said, it adds that personal local feel to the show.
John and his wife Mary use hands free radio microphones that allow them to
move around the display demonstrating and explaining the many interesting
items on show. Mary Jewell answers the many questions people have of the
display, demonstrations and the unique Australian artefacts (mini museum)
John and Mary have collected on their travels throughout Australia.
"We are a multi award winning attraction for both our display and performance,"
Mary Jewell stated. I feel I can safely say I can promise the public a wonderful
and unique display and performance where people love to return to see
something different each visit through out the day.
