enjoy the simple life - a festival at boreen point
The Floating Land is a 10 day festival held at Boreen Point, just north of Tewantin and Noosa. And it's on now. So, If you like arty/crafty events or simply enjoy the peaceful ambiance of Boreen Point, why not check it out?
Apparently you have to wait for the right season when the tree's are flowering to harvest the bark. He told me that when you fold the bark over the edge of the canoe - you seal the edges with tree sap.
It took Brent 2 days to make this little canoe and he explained that mahogany bark has high level of being seaworthy as it doesn't warp when wet/dry.
There's still plenty of time to check out this festival - it ends on the 9th June 2013. Take a picnic or something to nibble on as although there was a tent set up selling coffee, the nearest eaterie is the Apolonian Pub, which is just down the road and well worth a visit!
