Rock The Mount

We have had a fun filled, wonderful weekend....

We made a last minute decision to go to the Rock the Mount country music festival at the nearby town of Mt Remarkable, Melrose. Friends of ours were traveling up from Port Lincoln to attend, so they stayed with us Friday night and then we all traveled together on Saturday. We live about 45 minutes driving time away from Melrose.
Camped out over night and slept in our swag...
Our camp...

The view from our camp....

This is Mount Remarkable...

My ute...I wish!

The arena this morning, very quiet compared to last night.
Campers and the arena in the background.

The McClymonts were fantastic...see them on you tube here:
Lee Kernaghan on stage.
And he can be found on you tube here:
On the big screen...
Absolutely awesome performer....
if you ever get the chance to see him live, go.

We are very tired today after such a big couple of days and night. Feeling my age after getting next to no sleep in the swag. The noise of the young ones having a great time partying after the concert echoed all the way around the campers, until finally at some unheard of hour of the morning they went quiet. I bet there wasn't too many of them at the 7.30 breakfast this morning.

Hope you are having a great weekend,



  1. What a great weekend......I am envious. Love country music

  2. Wonderful weekend for you, Tania, glad you had such a good time.
    Our recent music festival was quiet overnight as most people there would have been over 60...LOL

  3. Looks like a lot of fun, music, the outdoors, camping! Being from Oklahoma, USA, I can say that I love country music!


  4. I am a country music fan...and would LOVE to have a festival close to home like that. I could even take all the kiddos to something of that nature

  5. That would have been a great night ! Yep..takes me a week to get over a good night,lol.
    Ive seen Lee many times and he sure does know how to entertain a crowd.
    Our next big country music Festival is The Muster,I think thats May..huge crowds..they start caping out at the site a month before !! very keen.
