The Barn at Wombat Flat is our region's newest and best sounding 'listening' performance and art space at Neales Flat near Eudunda in SA’s Mid North. It’s about an hour and a half drive from Adelaide and about 45 minutes from the Clare Valley. The venue is a beautiful 150-year-old stone Clydesdale barn that owners Mike and Di have converted specifically for this purpose.
We here at The Barn at Wombat Flat have teamed up with John Simpson of Outback PA and Rob Baumann of Boots and All Fundraising to bring you 500 Miles of Music – Wombat Flat to William Creek, our inaugural roadshow entertaining a huge chunk of rural South Australia for one magic week in July 2019. The Tour has been designed to showcase some of Australia’s BEST musical talent to local audiences as well as SA and interstate tourists heading up to Birdsville for the annual Big Red Bash. Come along to one show or join the tour for the whole brilliant week!
The first show of the tour will be held right here in The Barn at Wombat Flat on Sat 6th July. This show is guaranteed to sell out with lots of interest from interstate travellers heading to The Big Red Bash so if you’re one of our loyal local patrons please be quick so you don’t miss out on a show like this in your own backyard!
