About the Tag A Long?
The Aussie As Tag-A-Long is a caravan music adventure getaway. It’s 6 nights in 3 specially selected locations. It’s happy hour campfire acoustic sing a longs under the stars mixed with community hall and Club concerts.
The Aussie As Tag-A-Long is the brain child of Australiana singer/songwriter Matt Scullion and his wife Sharon. They came up with the idea while out on tour traversing Australia putting on shows in caravan parks and cattle stations.
Matt says there are a lot of people out there who love to get out and about but are either to busy to organise a trip or a little hesitant to travel on their own. On this trip the itinerary is done for you and you won’t be alone, you’ll be travelling with like minded people in a no rush, laid back atmosphere. You’ll see some picturesque county side, meet some wonderful people and hear lots of home grown music.
You’ll lose yourself in campfire songs, get dressed up for country hall/club concerts and test your knowledge in music trivia. You’ll see museums, art galleries, wineries and explore beautiful unchanged historic towns while making new friends to last a lifetime.
Let Golden Guitar winning Australiana singer/songwriter Matt Scullion and his good mate the legendary song man Rockin Russ Heriot entertain you and take you on an Aussie As Tag-A-Long experience. Tour groups are limited to give it that personnel touch and to stay within current Covid laws.
The cost is $250 per person. Site costs are not included in fee.
