This is our very special annual Siang Ngobrol held in the bushy surrounds of Prue and Peter Price's property in Taradale, approximately 100 km northwest of Melbourne. AIAV members and friends are joined by members of BAIK (Bendigo Australian Indonesian Klub) for a great afternoon of food and drink (BYO), chatting (mengobrol) and a performance by the BAIK gamelan. This year the performance is oriented towards children, so bring your young'uns! Guests are welcome. Past events have included special appearances by emus and koalas.
As usual, please bring some food to share. A barbecue is available.
