Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at
Its not all about the horses
Punters and purveyors of horse flesh will be joined by a large crowd of former Diggers and RSL members at Kilcoy's annual Diggers Race Day on Saturday, 17th of April.

This race meeting, so close to ANZAC Day, has been held each year since 2014, in recognition of and to honour the courage and sacrifices made by Australian diggers and service personnel in campaigns, battles, and peacekeeping operations across the years.

Kilcoy is situated less than an hour and a half north-west of Brisbane and is a picturesque drive along the D'Aguilar Highway from Caboolture through Woodford. Alternatively, you can travel via Ipswich and the Brisbane Valley Highway.

The racecourse itself and the Kilcoy Race Club are situated at Woolmer, only a few minutes drive from Kilcoy township. Entry is free and gates open at 11am.

Throughout the afternoon ceremonial services will be conducted, including reciting of The Ode, Last Post, Rouse, and the National Anthem.

And ladies there will be Fashions on the Field.

For more information, contact the club on 0417 607 969 or email

Find the Yowie

I've written about Kilcoy previously. It's a pleasant little township surrounded by rolling hills and The Exchange Hotel dishes up the best steaks ever. Go here for information about accommodation and facilities.

Don't forget to look out for Yowies - similar to Yetis and Big Foot on your travels.

I have to depart and look for my Fascinator. Excuse me.

If a yowie that size comes around the corner and stares at me, I'll be off like the Road Runner!! I do like country races, Torbanlea near Maryborough has one too. Susan
