What is more Australian than listening to good pub rock, surrounded by beautiful scenery, enjoying the outdoors, sampling great food and local beverages, in the company of others doing exactly the same?
Hubby and I have attended a few concerts now, at the beautiful setting of Josef Chromy Wines, just out of Launceston, Tasmania.
The organisers of A Day On The Green never disappoint in organising outstanding talent, great venues, food, drink, facilities, security and transport.
This years event was a smashing success, with a sellout crowd of over 5000 to see the all-Australian line-up of Boom Crash Opera, James Reyne, The Angels, Baby Animals and Hoodoo Gurus.

Each band played their well known tunes to the enthusiastic crowd for about an hour each, and then made their way to the Merchandise Tent to meet fans and do signings.
Besides seeing my favourite band from the 90's and enjoying the great day with my hubby, I would have to say the other highlight of the event was the amazing spectacle of the amenities area. This may sound a little strange, but the smart organisation of the facilities and the people watching opportunity was a real joy. Like nothing I have ever seen, the arrangement of toilets were an art form by themselves, and the people standing in the small queues were very entertaining.
