Donnybrook Apple Festival 2021

First to arrive was ourselves. We took the location under the tree. The rest gradually arrived in their own time. Two groups from Perth, one from Denmark, another all the way from Konnongorring & two groups from Busselton.

Happy hour started when everyone was settled & another camper DJ Nige gave us some samples of music to entertain us from the back of his working DJ truck with spinning disco balls & smoke pumping out. A plan was made for the following day. After a sleep in, cause the Festival wasn't starting till 10am we all headed over for the start. Depending upon interests we all went slightly different ways to all enjoy the Festive atmosphere. Our first stop was BronnyDs caramelised apple stand & we made a purchase. We also bought a variety of local apples & pears.

Displays included machinery, vintage cars & motor cycles, an Australian draft horse working display & on top of that wine, cider, cheese, honey (we purchased some of this amazing honey, it's great to make a cuppa tea, just a teaspoon in your hot water) & fruit (picked from the tree yesterday), tastings, & lots of local produce.

We had another local couple visit for the day, Sunday to see the Festival & join in on an early Happy Hour session before returning home to Busselton.

The fun of the fair entertainment that we viewed included the wood chopping, Freestyle Motocross jumping by local lad Josh Sheehan &
his team, cooking demonstrations by Anna Gare & Fiona Klein. The Festival finished at 3pm Sunday.

We all had a great time spending quality time over the lovely Easter long weekend.
Some have rebooked sites with BP Donnybrook for 2022 as we exited of the transit park.

Arriving back home. There is no place like home!
