The Aussie star says he’s thrown in ‘a sausage and a free beer’ for concert-goers, as part of the experience.

The shows will take place on Saturday, June 10, followed by Sunday, June 11.

‘It’s really sharing how lucky we are to have this place,’ Williamson speaking to 9Honey Celebrity on Saturday.  

‘We overlook complete wilderness and overlook the rainforest, and people just get a lot of fun just being there, let alone the show.’

Elsewhere in the chat, Williamson revealed that during the past years of COVID restrictions and lockdowns, the 24-time Golden Guitar winner has had a chance to think about his retirement.

He told the outlet that he confined himself to his 100-acre during the pandemic and spent time building a green house and chook run.

‘I came from the land and now I’m back on it,’ the Drover’s Boy hit maker said of his country life style.

The land he says, ‘keeps me alive and creating. Once I get away and go on stage, I think, ‘Oh, this is what I do.’ But I’m finding it harder to leave home every time.’
