Ord Valley Muster puts Kimberley on centre stage


• Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster to attract thousands of people

• Eskimo Joe, The Waifs headline Airnorth Kimberley Moon Experience

Western Australia’s cultural spotlight is on the Kimberley region as it hosts the 2014 Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster.


Acting Tourism Minister John Day has travelled to the Kimberley this week to attend the popular festival, which attracts thousands of people from across Australia and overseas. Mr Day said the event allowed visitors to experience first-hand the region’s cultural diversity, unique landscapes and quality local produce.


“The annual Ord Valley Muster is an ideal event for people with a passion for art, culture, landscape, food, sport, entertainment, and of course, friendly country hospitality,” he said.


“Its evolution from a simple dinner for local businesses in 2001 to an annual extravaganza has been fantastic to witness.”


The Acting Minister said the muster featured around 30 events, including an appearance by My Kitchen Rules’ judge Manu Feildel and one of Australia’s great food educators and renowned restaurateur, Stephanie Alexander.


“The pinnacle of the festival, the Airnorth Kimberley Moon Experience which will be held this Saturday, will also ignite the region with the sounds of popular artists such as Eskimo Joe, The Waifs and John Williamson,” he said.


The State Government is proud to support the Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster through Tourism WA’s Regional Events Program, funded by Royalties for Regions. Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said he was pleased to see Royalties for Regions funding support exciting events such as the Ord Valley Muster.


“With the continued support of Royalties for Regions funding, events such as the Ord Valley Muster can continue to involve and inspire the local community while enhancing the overall vitality and vibrancy of WA,” Mr Redman said.
