The Sunday Sessions
February 5th 2020
How good is a Sunday arvo in the middle of Summer Downunder? Apart from the razzing we copped from the bushfires it’s been a pretty damn good year. The glass is half full and if you think it can’t get any better you would be wrong. The Boatshed Restaurant is now open for lunch until 3pm on Sunday afternoons and we have just released a line up of very talented artists who will be bringing the entertainment to the beer garden every Sunday 1.30pm-4.30pm, read on to see who will be playing through to the end of March.
