On song for Australia

A chilled-out musical event at Queenstown’s Recreation Ground raised at least $37,000 for communities affected by bushfires in Australia.

More than 1000 people are estimated to have reached into their pockets for the cause while enjoying music by local DJs and musicians at the Wakatipu Waiata for Australia.

The money will be distributed by Lions Queenstown in conjunction with Lions Australia.
