Tasmania is set to celebrate the medieval spirit this month – so don't miss out!
The Burnie-Wynyard Medieval Festival is taking place September 21-22 and is an especially unique and fun event.
Harking back to early days, you'll get to see knights locked in a jousting battle on horseback as well as sword fighting contests! If you've ever dreamed of going back to the olden days and living like the Knights of the Round Table then this is your best chance. Hosted by 'The Sovereign Military Order of the Knights Templar Tasmania Inc' this event is authentic as it gets.
Not only will you get to experience exciting contests, the belly and highland dances will also be a feast for your eyes. Live snake displays are sure to fascinate and maybe even frighten you, as will the skill of the archers who make hitting the bullseye seem easy.
This Medieval Festival is for all ages, so bring your kids and they can take pony rides or get their faces painted, and maybe even take part in some miniature-medieval activities. There's also plenty of food and drink available on-site.
To top it all off, festival goers are welcome to dress up in medieval costumes so get creative and make the experience fully interactive. Bring the whole family and see how much fun becoming medieval can be.
