Triple M’s Kaz & Tubes launch grand plan to rename a Tassie town


Triple M’s Kaz & Tubes are on a mission to rename the Tasmanian town of National Park to ‘Fanning Dempsey National Park,’ in honour of a new music collab by Bernard Fanning and Paul Dempsey.

For weeks, Kaz & Tubes have been inviting listeners to brainstorm creative ways to capture the musicians’ attention and secure a tour in Tasmania.

Fanning, best known as the frontman for Powderfinger, and Dempsey, who fronts Something for Kate, recently spoke to Kaz & Tubes about their new album.

Now, Kaz & Tubes are determined to bring the talented duo to Tassie.

National Park, a scenic town with a population of over 10,000, is nestled in the Derwent Valley. With the support of Derwent Valley Council Mayor Michelle Dracoulis, Kaz & Tubes have successfully changed the town’s sign to reflect this ambitious campaign.

Locals driving past the new ‘Fanning Dempsey National Park’ sign might be puzzled, but it’s all part of Kaz & Tubes’ grand plan to bring two of Australia‘s most celebrated musicians to the Apple Isle.

Might want to check your facts there. The population of the Derwent Valley as a whole is a bit over 10,000, National Park would struggle to reach 100.

This is everything! National Park is the dreamiest location and music filters through its trees, rivers and waterfalls. Bring. It. On!
