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”, Brigadoon begins at first light with the haunting sound of Bagpipes drifting across the village in anticipation of a day of traditional Scottish celebrations.“Bundanoon is Brigadoon” has become one of the most successful events staged in the area.
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 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”. You don’t even have to be Scottish to enjoy the day.
