vendors and guests to celebrate the modern face of Australia. Be part of
history by witnessing three of the most Ancient Cultures in the World on

Face of Australia Festival in Support of the Central Gippsland Service Oncology Department
All proceeds from the Face of Australia Festival will go towards the redevelopment of the Oncology Department at the Central Gippsland Health Service in Sale. The expansion of the facility is crucial at a time when it is being used to treat more patients than ever before. Unfortunately, demand for the facility's resources will continue to rise in the future and the benefits of the expanded facility will include the provision of chemotherapy to more patients while decreasing their travel and time away from home and family while undergoing treatment. At a stressful time for patients and their family, this local service helps to reduce the burden and your support of the Face of Australia Festival will also assist the ongoing support and treatment of local cancer patients.
