In addition to enjoying the a must try vanilla slice at the local bakery, Willaura and district boasts a number of Historical Sites and Buildings as well as a Heritage Railway Station. A long and interesting history is currently being researched by the local Lion’s club about the historic horse trough in town, one of many donated worldwide by Mr. and Mrs. Bills in the 1920s. Today farming is still the district’s mainstay, and while many of the town’s shops and former businesses have gone, there remains a strong community spirit.

NOTE: The Little Stevies will not be appearing at this show:


New Zealand born & Australian bred, Rob Longstaff is a singer / songwriter of the acoustic blues & soul genre. With two studio albums already under his belt, Rob recorded his most recent album at Blackbird Studios in Berlin. “Boogaloo’ boasts soulful acoustic gems and exemplifies his powerful voice and impressive fingerpicking style. He’s an entertainer as much a musician, wooing crowds with his humour and energy. When in the studio, he insists on recording his tracks in one take. No tricks, no gimmicks, just his voice and guitar. He’s played gigs throughout Australia and Europe and including festivals such as Woodford Folk Festival & Maleny Music Festival.
