Our excitement was high as we prepared ourselves to see the mighty pianist and entertainer Elton John, playing is outdoor farewell concert at Woodends Hanging Rock. 12 of us jumped in the Adventurebilities bus and went on our 1 hour road trip down the Calder Highway.
Upon arriving on site, there was a good 1 hours wait to get our bus in to the venue, and we were told to go to the Accessible Parking section at the back of the ampitheatre as it was the closest to the entry gates. "Close" not so much, it was a good 15 minute walk away and luckily the wheelchair had its 4WD wheels on ready to go.
The ampitheatre had a wheelchair accessible platform that we could hang out on so the viewing experiences was excellent, and the accessible loo's were a couple of wheel spins away from the platform which was excellent. The bar was at the other end of the arena but the queues were not that long so getting a drink wasn't too bad. But the view with the Rocks in the background made it a perfect setting for a concert.
Mr Elton John put on an excellent show, singing all of his hits and had the crowd dancing the night away for many hours.
Getting out of the joint at the end of the night was a little tricker as 7,000 people were all leaving the venue at the one time. It took us about 40 minutes to get back to the bus and then another good half an hour to get out of the carpark and back on to the highway.
But all in all it was a great time and our boogie bones were well and truly shaked.
