Have some


Aemen perform at Henley on Mersey Latrobe Council Australia Day event

The program offers many land based programs; these include (just naming a few):



There's a chance to try your hand at archery, something that doesn't look too difficult but those bulls' eyes do seem a long way away when having a go. This year there will be a competition running throughout the day with a grand final shoot out occurring at 2:45 pm.


Egg Throwing

Egg throwing can be a little messy and is best undertaken with someone that you trust.  The trick with this is to cradle the catch of the egg.

Sheaf Tossing

The sheaf tossing tests your upper body strength as you use a three pronged pitchfork to throw a sheaf over a horizontal pole that is progressively raised.  The winner is the sheaf that clears the greatest height.


Axeman’s Carnival

Run since 1913; there is an extensive wood chopping competition held throughout the day on what is touted to be the best wood chopping arena in Tasmania.  These events have a huge and dedicated following; who will win the prestigious Henley Foot this year?
