Rainforest Revival Day is a festive fundraiser, initiated, sponsored and hosted by the Hotel Brunswick. Supporting the vitally important work of Rainforest Rescue and Big Scrub Landcare, it’s a day of information, awesome music, interesting stalls, a dedicated Kids’ Corner, and so much more.
Funds raised on the day will be matched by both the Hotel Brunswick and sensational local brewers Stone & Wood, who’ll also feature their famous Karma Keg.
A Welcome to Country with Bunyurra Culture Collective leads the day. Following will be inspiring speakers representing Australia’s rainforest community, including the co-founder of Rainforest Rescue and President of Big Scrub Landcare, Dr. Tony Parkes, the recent recipient of the Order of Australia for distinguished service to conservation and the environment through the restoration of subtropical rainforest in northern New South Wales. Joe Gala, Indigenous Elder and Traditional Indigenous Dancer from K’Gari (Fraser Island) will also perform.
There’ll be many ways to participate and give back to our rainforests: make a pledge and take home a rainforest tree; purchase a book about rainforest restoration or the Big Scrub; grab a Rainforest t-shirt and buy into the giant rainforest raffle with fantastic prizes ranging from local business contributions to Daintree Rainforest adventures.
Kids’ Corner will feature face painting, Fauna Fetchers Australian Wildlife show, and screenings of Fern Gully 1 and 2. Music will flow with Kyle Lionhart, Salt and Steel and Mojo Jacket from 7pm.
The very entertaining Mark Swivel will MC this special day, in celebration of Australian Rainforests, growing the movement towards a more certain future for all life.
Join us to celebrate, dance, dine, donate, and contribute to the survival and revival of these magnificent, majestic, magical places.
Hotel Brunswick, Saturday September 7th – 4.00pm-10.00pm. Entry by gold coin donation. All funds raised will go towards the revival of Australia’s rainforests.
