Fun & Games At Brigadoon.

In the mists of the NSW, Southern Highlands lies the village of Bundanoon, home to the traditional Scottish Highland Games. For the past 42 years, Bundanoon has gained the envious reputation throughout Australia for hosting “Bundanoon is Brigadoon”, the gathering held “Always in April” with a following of 12000 visitors come along & enjoy, & participate in the day.

Brigadoon begins at first light with the haunting sound of Bagpipes drifting across the village in anticipation of a day of traditional Scottish celebrations. While locals & guest’s alike lie safe & snug in their beds they awake to the sound of the bagpipes echoing hauntingly, while the village of Bundanoon is magically transformed into the mystical “Brigadoon”.

“Bundanoon is Brigadoon” has become one of the most successful events staged in the area. From its humble beginnings of a handful of pipe bands & spectators, & is recognised worldwide & has grown to into one of the finest Highland Gatherings in Australia.

The Street Parade starts at 9.00am & features 25 Pipe Bands from all over the state & inter state accompanied by a large variety of decorated floats & marching Clan Societies.

The Opening Ceremony begins at 10.00am. The Gathering is officially opened by the Chieftain of the Day. Spectators are then treated to a spectacular Massed Pipes & Drums display. The sheer pageantry of the display has to be seen to be appreciated; the magic of the occasion leaves one breathless. The swirling of a myriad of coloured tartans & music stirs the heart & makes you proud to wear the Kilt of your ancestors.

At the Oval there are over 100 specialist stalls, selling everything Scottish, from pies & shortbread to Clan memorabilia & souvenirs, with copious amounts of food promoting every nationality, even the Scots favourite “Haggis”.

All are made most welcome at the gathering & encouraged to participate in the “Traditional” and not so “traditional” games. You don’t even have to be Scottish to enjoy the day.
