From red mankinis, grandpas in G-strings and budgie smugglers, to mullet wigs, nuns cradling lapdogs and blow-up cow costumes – a sea of wild, wacky, and colourful costumed showered Outback NSW for the ‘Mundi Undi Fun Run’ at the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash music festival.

Staged to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) and forming part of Outback NSW’s biggest ever live music event, the one-kilometre charity fund run saw 649 festivalgoers sweep across the iconic Mundi Mundi Plains – offering up a striking and hilarious sight whilst raising almost $10,000 in the process.

‘The Mundi Undi Run’ is just one of many colour activities that took place on Day 2 of the Mundi Mundi Bash. Held over August 18-20, the all-ages, dog-friendly festival hosted around 8,000 travellers and Oz rock music lovers, who converged for three-days in the remote red desert to party, camp and revel in true blue culture and Outback Australiana.

The Mundi Mundi Bash also hosted a ‘Doggie Fashions on the Plains’ competition to crown the outback’s most fashionable fur babies. The Bash’s dashing dogs strutted their stuff in the fiercest of frocks – dressing to impress in desert runway looks that would upstage supermodels on the world’s premiere fashion runways.

Taking the stage on the spectacular Mundi Mundi Plains were Jimmy Barnes, Missy Higgins, Jon Stevens, Kasey Chambers, Daryl Braithwaite, The Wolfe Brothers, Busby Marou, Pierce Brothers, Melanie Dyer, The Buckleys and more!

The Mundi Mundi Bash marked one of the last chances for Australian fans to see legendary rock outfit, Midnight Oil on home soil before their retirement – and the only chance to see them on the red dirt of the Australian outback.
