THE LEEUWIN CONCERT SERIES
Leeuwin stages spectacular alfresco concerts in the picturesque grounds of the Estate as part of the Winery’s ongoing association and sponsorship of the Arts.
Described as the most extraordinary concerts ever held in Australia, the Leeuwin Concerts have featured an eclectic mix of the world’s finest musicians and entertainers from Dame Kiri Te Kanawa to Ray Charles, Tom Jones, James Taylor, Carole King and Sting. A highlight in Australia’s social and cultural calendar, visitors from all over Australia and abroad make the pilgrimage to the Margaret River Estate to enjoy the music of the industry’s greatest performers. Attired in anything from top hats to t-shirts, they picnic on the lawns whilst enjoying these remarkable events. As the sun sets over a majestic backdrop of karri forest and music fills the natural amphitheatre, Leeuwin’s famous kookaburras commence their cackling chorus to the amusement of guests and entertainers alike.
There is a reason Perth’s social and corporate elite make the pilgrimage to the South West for Leeuwin Estate’s annual concert and post-show marquee. For it is, without a doubt, unlike any social event in WA.
