All roads will lead to Carinda when the small village celebrates the life of David Bowie on the 8th & 9th of October 2016!
Bowie had a deep connection for the Australian Outback, a strong interest in Aboriginal culture and his song and film clip Let’s Dance was performed at the Carinda Hotel. Following the entertainer’s death on January 10th 2016, the idea was born and plans are well underway for this huge tribute in the bush!
