March 2012 newsletter


Autumn is on the way - so let's enjoy the last days of Summer with some great events in Warburton.

But now hang on to your aura! - the buzz is in the hills - it's here this weekend! - Harmony fest!

Warburton Harmony Festival

March 8-12, 2012

Harmony Festival 2012 is a joyous five day celebration of harmony, community, spiritual diversity and development! 2012 marks the fourth year of celebrating the Harmony Festival and this year the festival promises to emulate the success of its predecessors.

We are thrilled to have obtained funding from Festivals Australia to implement the Harmony Dance program into this year’s festival! We are also pioneering a new program especially for our younger visitors, Harmony Kids

March 17th and 18th, 2012 - Warburton Tennis Cup

Fancy an Australian tennis competition Upper Yarra Valley style? The Warby Cup is now in its 4th year. At the Tennis Club on the left as you come in to town.

Spectators are welcome - and I hear there will be some sausages on the BBQ on Sunday18th. It is a great community event - supported by the local Warburton Bank - so pop down and see (or play?) some tennis. Enquiries? Call Christian: 0421 996 069
