This family-friendly party in the Hills brings together music, history, food and fireworks

Looking for a January 26 party you can take the kids to? Head to Bella Vista Farm for a day of performances from beloved Australian artists, street food and activities that'll keep all generations entertained.

For a true blue dose of Australiana, there'll be sheep shearing, blacksmithing, whip-cracking and working dog demonstrations running throughout the day, plus tours at the Homestead where you can explore the historic displays and get a bit fancy at a Devonshire tea. You’ll also find kid-friendly activities like face-painting and balloon twisting, plus events requiring a bit of team effort like giant Jenga, group mural painting and gardening programs.

Grab a bite from one of the street food trucks or a sanga from the sausage sizzle before settling in for an evening of entertainment on the main stage. There’ll be performances from childrens’ entertainers Hi-5, the jazzy party group the High Rollers Big Band and X Factor winner Reece Mastin keeping the night abuzz with energy before the fireworks display at 9pm.
