Country Music Festival, Kenny Rogers & Australia Day Tamworth

Australia Day Port Stephens 022Kenny Rogers - DownUnder tour TamworthSuper excited that I’m the Australia Day Ambassador for Tamworth on the last day of the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

Flying from Sydney, I’ll land in Tamworth and Kenny Rogers Grammy Award-winning country superstar and contemporary music icon will be performing his – Farewell down under Tour’ – 25th January 2015 .

My parents became Australian citizens as soon as they could, and while my brother was born in Hungary, I just made it to Australia. So giving the Australia Day Address is a great honour.

Love you to say hello to me at the Australia Day Celebrations in Tamworth on 26th January 2015.

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
