‘Australia Fair’ is the name of this beautiful street organ made by Johnny Verbeeck, built from the Verbeeck’s Organ Works (Est 1884), in the city of Antwerp, Belgium.
- The ‘Australia Fair’ travelling concert organ entertains crowds throughout Australia, bringing happiness to thousands who listen to her music. This isn’t hard, because its mission is to entertain and delight generations of Australians in street organ concerts.
- It is the only travelling Concert Organ in Australia. It has entertained extensively at all levels from local functions to “Yarralumla” – the residence of the Governor General of Australia.
- All Australians are encouraged to support ‘Australia Fair’, as it is self-funded and reliant on personal donations to ensure her continued future.
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh, why can’t I?
