The Bogan Hunters are coming to Gladstone

THE Bogan Hunters are coming to Gladstone for the inaugural Freedom Festival in March.

The Bogan Hunters is a comedy/reality show that screens on 7Mate, featuring an Australia-wide hunt for the country's biggest bogans in their natural habitat.

It stars Paul Fenech, Elle Dawe and Kevin Taumata.

The first series aired from May to July last year, with two Tasmanian men tying for the main title.

The team will be in Gladstone on March 21 for the Freedom Festival and Family Fun Day, a family friendly event organised to help prevent suicide and bullying.

Also paying a visit will be Home and Away stars Philippa Northeast, George Mason and Andrew Morely.

The event will help promote Reachout.com, a site dedicated to helping young Australians living with a mental health difficulty, offering assistance to those being bullied, and to people with sexual issues, friendship and family issues.

The day has been created to promote awareness for these issues which mostly affect young adults aged between 14-25 years.

It is a drug and alcohol free event, with amusement rides, stalls, face painting, and music.

For more information, head over to freedomfestivalgladstone.com or Facebook by searching Freedom Festival and Family Fun Day.

The Observer would like to give the team a hand in finding Gladstone's biggest bogan.

If you or someone you know think you take the title, email ebony.battersby@gladstoneobserver.com.au or phone 4970 3040.
