There are approximately one million grey nomad’s travelling Australia every year. Retired folks who have dreamed of experiencing their beloved country Australia and purchased a 4X4 vehicle and caravan and set out for who knows where? Thats the dream. Just living life out on the road with no fixed agenda. It is a special part of the Australian ethos of life. The joy of becoming a vagabond, a swagman, a wanderer, a gypsy… It is just built in to the way we are. We love to travel.
Ironically the centre piece of the Slim Dusty Centre south of Kempsey is the beloved Ford Fairlane and caravan that Slim and Joy travelled in for decades across Australia.
It is a spectacular symbol of what ‘freedom’ means to millions of Australian people. It is with this spirit that we are compelled to record a tribute album that we pray will reach many in this ‘grey nomad’ culture. They all love Slim Dusty music so we pray this new tribute album will connect and captivate the hearts of the travelling culture.
Thanks for your prayers and support for this new venture.
