Australia – The Land of Splendour
Last updated: July 29th, 2013 by admin
Australians know how to throw a party and Sydney in particular manages to have it’s two biggest parties nicely spaced apart. New Year’s Eve, is, of course at the end of December, while Splendour in the Grass is at the end of July.
Although billed as a music festival, the joy of Splendour (or Splendour in the Grass, to give it its proper name) is that it has plenty for everyone, including children. Those taking a break from an array of international acts, can sample the delights of food stalls from fine dining out of doors to ultra-healthy options. There are craft fares and stores selling pretty much everything.
Of course, while the many festival goers can often be tempted to shop, what many of them really love to do is talk. As well as being a haven for music lovers, Splendour is a forum for everyone from those who want to put the world to rights to those who just want to talk about the weird and wonderful happenings in it. One of the wonders of Splendour is its openness and the way people find ways to communicate. For more formal communications in Australia, it’s best to hire the services of a qualified NAATI translator.
