Tenterfield Show 2011

For as long as I can remember, I have been heavily involved with the Tenterfield Show. I retired this year as the show's Secretary, but am still actively involved with the Show.

With all this in mind, I thought I should give this year's Show a mention, and encourage anyone near Tenterfield to either enter the Show, or come along and enjoy all the great things on offer.

We have had a few set-backs this year, with the floods - leading the cancellation of the Stud Cattle, Shearing, Utes and Motorbike events .... but as they say, The Show will go on!
This year's show is on 4,5 and 6 February at the Tenterfield Showgrounds, Tenterfield.
For further details regarding the show, please visit the Show's website,

Aloomba Lavender Farm

I went for a visit yesterday afternoon to drop off some new scarves and to take a look around the beautiful Aloomba Lavender Farm.

Aloomba Lavender is part of a four thousand acre cattle property east of Stanthorpe. The lavender farm was established in 1998 and has become one of the best lavender and accommodation destinations in Stanthorpe.
The gift shop is a treasure trove of lavender goodies - ranging from dried bunches of lavender, to lavender chocolates, honey, jams and of course their very popular oils.

I highly recommend you visit Aloomba next time you're in the area. Your hosts Peter and Tere Bonner will make you feel so at home. It's definitely worth the drive!
