Biennial forest frolic at Mount Crawford raises about $8000

Williamstown's uniquely wonderful and ongoing fundraiser 'Wirraminna Forest Frolic' attracted over a hundred guests on Saturday evening.

The fourth biennial event, a major fundraiser for Wirraminna Care, saw guests dig deep to help raise about $8000.

Funds will go towards the ongoing support and care of aged residents who call the Williamstown site their home.

Meanwhile, a sheep yard and a shearing shed at a farm within the Mount Crawford forest provided the perfect setting.

The unlikely location further offered a glittering formal dining experience among pine trees, under hundreds of fairy lights and the night's stars - all before beautifully set tables.

Live music provided by the KGB Big Band enabled the formal dance floor to be well used.

A lively and fun auction further raised money for Wirraminna Care.

Organisers shared how the event went well into the night with guests from far and wide enjoying the best Barossa wines and food - and an 'old fashioned' country get-together.

The event, which is revered by many as a highlight on their social calendar, is also regarded as a true highlight for the Southern Barossa community.
