The famed Bundanoon Highland Gathering, known affectionately as Brigadoon, is going bottled water free for 2010. One of the world's largest highland gatherings (over 20,000 visitors) Brigadoon will again show a reverence for all things Scottish, on Saturday, 17 April 2010.
The Bundanoon Highland Gathering Committee have taken the step of advising visitors of their bottled water free actions via the event's website:
"• WATER - PLEASE NOTE: The Bundanoon Highland Gathering fully supports the "Bundy on Tap" proposal for stopping the sale of bottled water in Bundanoon, and therefore there will be NO bottled water for sale at the gathering.
• Water Bottles will be available for sale at the Village or the Gathering
• There are FREE water stations in town and facilities at the oval to fill reusable water bottles.
Either bring you own Water bottle or purchase a Bundy on Tap bottle in the Village or a reusable water bottle at the oval."
The stall application form for the popular Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival informs stallholders that, "All packaging and utensils must be recyclable or compostible. Bottled water is not to be sold, in accordance with the Kangaroo Valley sustainability program. Chilled water is available for free at the bar."
The Festival will be held 22 to 24 October 2010 and supports the Kangaroo Valley Carbon Neutral Program, an initiative of Kangaroo Valley Tourist Association.
