Writing for pleasure to showcase the best Australia has on offer.
The Abbey Museum, which is located in Caboolture on the way to Bribie Island has been hosting the Abbey Open Day and Boutique Christmas Markets for the past three years. This year, the date has been set for 8th December 2018 from 10.00 am to 2.00pm.

The Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology and the Abbey Church will be open as part of the Open Day, along with a wide variety of speciality market stalls which will be situated within the grounds. In true Abbey Museum style, this year a historical theme of a Victorian era will build the atmosphere for the day. The Boutique Markets are sure to have plenty of great gifts for Christmas presents or stocking fillers. Applications for stallholders can be submitted here.

There will be Victorian craft activities such as paper chains and Christmas crackers, Victorian games, Skittles and Coconut Shy, as well as a Penny Farthing or two-wheeling around the grounds. Other games include Potato Races and Egg and Spoon Races.

Children and adults will have a chance to dance under the big May Pole, getting in some exercise after sampling the yummy foods and treats from the stalls. Kids will delight in getting their photograph taken with Santa.

The Open Day and Boutique Markets are free to all who attend. This is a great opportunity for you to browse around the Museum's amazing artefacts.
