SEPTEMBER AUSTRALIAN MOVIE NIGHT - TRACKS
In September we came home to Australia to share the extraordinary journey of a remarkable woman as she travelled 1700km across the Western Australian deserts from Alice Springs on an adventure of discovery and freedom.
We were entertained by FlashJack - Eumundi's favourite bush band - with some fabulous ballads to set the mood for a meander through the desert.
Our Australian menu prepared by chefs Johnjon and Mark included a Kangaroo Tail ragout with rice followed by a delicious dessert of pavlova with fresh fruit, cream and chocolate shavings.
Many thanks to our volunteers Marilyn, Lee, Stuart and Laraine for their superb food service. And to Trent, Bruce and Viv for your marvellous contributions as well.
Thanks once again to Trent and Katie Harvison of Starry Night's Outdoor Cinemas for Trent's time in helping us set up our new cinematic equipment, Lisa and Bruce Williment from Parti Events (fabulous Aussie theming. Thank you for taking us around the world one movie at a time!
