Today we experienced a bit of rural Australian "culture". We travelled about an hour west to the Australian Camp Oven Festival at Millmerran. There were an amazing number of people there, with huge camper vans and caravans complete with satellite dishes on top so as not to miss the important TV events.
There were all kinds of activities related to rural Australia in general, including blacksmithing.
An extensive display of old machinery included pumps of all shapes and sizes, and vintage cars.
And of course, the feature of the day was camp ovens, with cooking demonstrations and competitions, camp ovens of all sizes for sale, and of course food of various kinds cooked in camp ovens. The damper was delicious!
All in all it was a fascinating and fun example of a rural Australian festival.
