Grab your kilt and get to Maclean, the 'Scottish Town in Australia'. Walk among the clans that invade the town for the Highland Gathering every Easter from around the country. Piping competitions take place non-stop at different venues, as well as street concerts with dancers, pipers and singers. A parade along the main street of all participating bands takes place on Easter Saturday (8.30am sharp) and is followed by traditional Scottish games and dancing - tossing the Caber and hammer throwing, food stalls and Scottish products await the bands and visitors at the Showgrounds before a Grand Scottish Concert at the Civic Hall.
