Highlander Celtic Rock Band Australia was formed in 2005 by Justin Body. Justin was from the original band (Highlander) who performed a mixture of Celtic and Australian bush music. After five years the band ended.The vision of the new band was simple, it had to be more professional with a high standard of musicianship, perform Scottish and Celtic music at its best, dressed in Kilts and with a belief that the music will speak for the band. The band was named Highlander Celtic Rock Band Australia to appeal to a world wide fan base. In 2008 the band played its first international show in Jakarta headlining the annual ‘Scotland in Concert’ which helped establish the band as a truly international act. Highlander received a standing ovation with the organisers claiming Highlander was the best act they have had.  
A new album was released in 2010. The album “North of the Wall” was testimony to the band's commitment to explore and produce rich and vibrant music. Since the release, the band has continued to play high profile Celtic events in Australia including the ‘Australian Celtic Festival’ in Glenn Innes, the ‘National Celtic Festival’ in Portarlington and the ‘Bundanoon Highland Gathering’ in the Southern Highlands. The sound of Highlander combines a unique blend of pipes, whistle, fiddle, guitars, mandolin, drums and vocals together with a dynamic stage presence to produce an unforgettable and exciting live performance which is enjoyed and respected by audiences of all ages. “If the sound of Highland bagpipes stirs the blood and makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end – then Highlander is a show not to be missed.
