Coals are Being Stoked for the Australian Camp Oven Festival

Australian Camp Oven Festival 2008The coals will be stoked, the caravans unhitched and the damper rising when the sleepy Queensland township of Millmerran welcomes tourists and locals alike for the Australian Camp Oven Festival, October 4 and 5.

The Festival offers a rather quirky program that celebrates authentic Aussie traditions including camp oven cooking demonstrations, damper throwing, billy boiling, bush poetry, celebrity chef appearances, bush craft displays and much more.

Now firmly cemented as a highlight in the region’s event calendar, the Festival is expected to attract thousands of tourists from all over Australia.

Katrina Grundon, representative of the Australian Camp Oven Festival advised that the biennial event was highly anticipated by locals.

“The festival has definitely been embraced by the Millmerran community who look forward to welcoming the many tourists that come for the weekend in their caravans, motor homes, tents and trailers.

”It’s been a great way to showcase our region and encourage visitors to enjoy the slower pace of country life and explore the great attractions South East Queensland has to offer.”

Camp OvenShe advised that the Festival offered visitors a one of a kind experience, showcasing the traditional bush and camp oven-cooking skills that are synonymous with Australian heritage.

“There’s nothing more Australian than sitting around a fire and sharing a warm slice of damper.  Visitors to the Festival can experience the unique tastes and scents of camp oven cooking while enjoying the live entertainment and other bush traditions that we have on offer.”

The 2014 Australian Camp Oven Festival will be held on the 4 and 5 October at the Millmerran Showgrounds, Queensland.
