Hi, I love living a simple life in my island home. Whether cooking, camping, sailing or sewing, I'm happy sharing my lifestyle with you.
An island to oneself? Not really but the locals are friendly
Are you stuck in your comfort zone of Christmas shopping in the 'burbs'? Break out and take a trip across Moreton Bay to an island where time slows down and the locals are friendly. So friendly, in fact that you may not want to leave. If you're after quirky, eco-friendly, hand crafted gifts for Christmas visit the Infinite Earth Summer Solstice Christmas Market on Macleay Island on Saturday, 17th December, 2016. Open 8am 2pm.

These Christmas markets operate at The Organic Farm on Macleay Island where the regular and popular organic market takes place each Saturday between 8am and 2pm. A courtesy bus will be running throughout the day to meet visitors arriving by ferries at the Macleay Island jetty. Phone 0476000996 to book your excursion to a place of harmony and peace. It's the destination for ethical, unique handmade items made with love and is a great opportunity for buying gifts while supporting the local community. Bring your shopping list and cash and check out the Beelong Honey stall with local honey and sweet soaps and health products.
