Warm your hands around the camp fire as the billy boils and the tantalising aroma of freshly baked damper mingles with crisp country air at the annual Birdwood Farm Day.
This year marks the 39th Birdwood Farm Day, a proud tradition that gets bigger and better each time. What originally began as a school fundraising exercise has grown into a much-loved community event that attracts crowds of around 5000 people.
Participate in activities and games like tractor rides, tug-o-war, face painting, pony and camel rides, and a climbing wall. See native and farm animals, be entertained with live music, and browse the market stalls for bric-a-brac and local art and craft.
Don't forget to bring your scarecrow along for the chance to win some great prizes. The competition is open to all children and families to create their very own scarecrow from recycled materials.
If your scarecrow isn't up to scratch, there are more prizes to be won on the prize wheel, mega raffle, and silent auction.
Satisfy a rumbling stomach with hot food, gourmet goodies, and home-made treats. Have a camp fire lunch, bring your barbecue, or pack a picnic if you prefer.
The forest is bound to be chilly in May, so be sure to rug up with your winter woollies. There is shelter around, should the weather be inclement.
Entry to the Birdwood Farm Day is free for children, costs $7 for adults, or a maximum $12 per car. Proceeds support the Birdwood Primary School community. Visit the Birdwood Farm Day website or Facebook page for more information.
