How good is this?
Mark your calendars, because there is another Grand Final in Adelaide you didn’t know you needed in your life – the ‘Grand Feathered Final’! That’s right, a competition for who has the Best Pet Budgie in South Australia!
The Budgerigar Council of South Australia (BCSA) are hosting the Inaugural Budgie Fest 2023. It’s a day of wholesome family fun, with plenty of kids entertainment.
