We packed up our little caravan and along with three other fellow travelling pairs headed off in convoy to the small central west NSW town of Trundle.
Six years ago a very struggling Trundle decided that an ABBA festival may help their dying township....little did they know !!
ABBA fans came from everywhere and it has grown from strength to strength, and this year it's 6th festival was amazing.
We were booked into the showground camping area and found our spot and set up camp,
The next morning we were greeted with a stunning sunrise,
People filled the main street, and there were many people dressed in ABBA style fashions, and many not... but here a few of what we saw.
Also while wandering the street I spotted these beautiful gum tree flowers and couldn't resist a photo.
After lunch the ABBA train,a historic set of 10 restored 1920's carriages pulled by restored diesel locomotives made it's way from Forbes to Trundle loaded with ABBA fans.
This train was from the Lachlan Vintage Railway.
At this point we decided to head back to camp as the others in our group had done, not realizing that the street fun was just starting..
Apparently we missed the fashion parade and competition, dancing and much more partying in the main street. Our thoughts were to head back to camp have a rest ,drinks nibbles and get ready for the Bjorn Again concert in the evening.
Brian and I took the drone up at this point and captured the main street. In the bottom of one of the pics you can see the ABBA train.
We arrived after the gates were open and secured reasonably close to the front seats.
