As far as we can tell, The Billabong Band is the longest running Bush Band in Australia, and almost certainly the world. origins button   See the earliest known references from the Sydney Bush Music Club's Singabout magazine.

The Billabong Band is the VFMC’s Folk Band. We perform a variety of styles and can present programs that range from a concert presentation of music, song and poetry to a dance (with your group doing the dancing). A mixed programme can include items from all over the world of folk music."

In general we prefer to present Australian traditional songs and dance music, but we play and sing a number of styles.

The size of the group will depend on the event, but can vary from 6 to 8 up to a large group of over 15.
