Cracking night for Bundalong

By Emily Moretto

It’s going to be a cracker of a night at the Bundalong Tavern this Friday, January 11 when world record holding whip cracker Nathan Griggs shows off his enormous talent.

Nathan is not only Australia’s number one whip cracking entertainer, he is five-time whip cracking Guinness World Record holder.

Four times for the fastest record time with both one and two hands and also for the longest whip in the world at over 100m long.

When it comes to whips you will not find a more inspiring and passionate man.

Nathan is a new breed of Australian whip cracker, and he’s taking the world by storm.

From Mataranka in the top end of Northern Territory, Nathan has invested his entire existence in to perfecting his whip cracking and whip making expertise.

Now an artisan whip maker, his whips are in demand from all over the world, as is his whip cracking entertainment.

Nathan has a passion for rural Australia and travelling.

The past five years he has spent on the road, taking his show to hundreds of towns, entertaining thousands with his ever-evolving whip cracking talent, audience interaction and distinctive style of Aussie humour.

Joining Nathan on the night is popular country music singer Norm Price performing music from his ‘Outback’ show.

Norm explained that while touring the Northern Territory in June with his outback show, he was performing at the Mataranka Homestead where he saw Nathan doing his show.

Norm was very impressed with this young man’s skills and entertaining ability, so when Brett Butler from the Bundalong Tavern asked if he would like to be a part of the show, he had no hesitation in saying yes.
