Where would you go for an amazing fireworks display?
- New York?
To my surprise, I found it is actually in a small town of just 482 people called Gunning. Located in a rural area, 260 km (160 miles) south-west of Sydney, Australia.
Why? Firework’s Australia the country’s largest firework’s distributor and organiser has two factories in the area and every year they organise the Gunning Fireworks Festival to demonstrate their newest and best bangs and colours.
I went along for this year’s Festival last Saturday night and for almost two hours, small and large shells, rockets and mortars were launched culminated in a fireworks finale like nothing I have ever seen.
Each week, I scour the internet for something weird or wonderful that has happened in travel land. if you come across anything weird or wonderful that I should be mentioning, please let me know! My Twitter handle is martinjcowling
