The Bushwackers Birthday Bash

The Bushwackers Eureka Big Birthday Bash
Fri December 6 - The Thornbury Theater
The Bushwackers are celebrating their 43rd year of performing and the anniversary of the Eureka Stockade with a Big Birthday Bash at the Thornbury Theatre on Friday December 6th. The Bushwackers have always had a special connection with the spirit of Eureka. Their iconic anthem, ‘Beneath the Southern Cross’ speaks to their many fans who also feel that connection. This celebratory night is an opportunity to remember the events of Eureka, especially those diggers who stood up to the heavily armed troopers on the goldfields of Ballarat in 1854 – a defiant stance that helped forge our Australian spirit.
The Bushwackers are still going strong after 43 years. Gone are the beards and long hair of this group who formed at Melbourne’s La Trobe University in 1971 but the ideals, energy and determination have remained strong to this day. The band are led by Dobe Newton and Roger Corbett who together have seen the Bushwackers through some tough days and glorious nights of great Australian music.
