The sceptics said it couldn’t be pulled off. How on earth could a tumbleweed town like Wangaratta in rural Victoria host a jazz festival? Even if the town managed to get a jazz festival off the ground for a year or two, it couldn’t possibly last, the doubters said.

Now thirty years later, the festival having also added on a blues event, is firmly established as Australia’s leading jazz festival, bringing musicians and punters from all over Australia together. It has won tourism awards and is now ranked as a Hallmark event by the Victorian Government.
