The theme for the 2019 Livelighter Dardanup Bull & Barrel Festival is: ‘The Timber Industry, Now and Then’
The nearby locality of Wellington Mills was the site of the largest private timber town from the late 1800’s to the 1920’s. Jarrah milled at Wellington Mills was transported through Dardanup to places around the world.
Today, local industries that sponsor the Festival such as Preston Woodchipping Co, Laminex, Wespine and TJ Depiazzi produce or use timber products that are still exported to the world.
Not to mention the beloved fire sculpture that is built out of pine timber donated by Wespine or the Bunbury Woodturners who put on a wonderful display of timber products.
The Festival will celebrate the timber theme with historical displays, demonstrations and much more. Definitely a Festival not to be missed!
