Speaking of the Ute Muster, Deni’s world-famous cultural event (which occurs at the start of October) is hosting a celebration of its own over the weekend. The Ute Muster site, hard to miss due to the huge rusted-iron gates on the drive north-east out of town, is opening its long-awaited museum.
The Deni Ute Muster has reigned supreme as the iconic celebration of Australian culture, music, fun and good times. For more than 20 years it has attracted regional and rural crowds, and a huge influx of city folk too, to enjoy music, fun, great utes and even better hospitality, in what has become one of the showcase family-friendly events in Australia.
A museum dedicated to capturing the history and spirit of the event is having its grand opening on 7 March. If you’re not at the muster, this is the next best thing. It’ll then be open 7 days a week.
Spend Sunday arvo and evening in the good hands of organisers at the Play on the Plains music festival. Kicking off at 1:30 and ending around 9:30, this is the perfect event for visitors of all ages. This year’s lineup is amazing. Headliners are Freo’s San Cisco, with their famed cool sounds sure to leave you on a relaxed high.
Before them, we’ve got acts from right across the country designed to lift spirits with their broad appeal. Look out especially for the truly amazing and unmissable voice of Benny Walker and the Hottest 100 hits of Ruby Fields
