Writing for pleasure to showcase the best Australia has on offer.
Dayboro is a very friendly town in the Moreton Bay Region and approximately 46 kilometres from Brisbane. It is mainly an agricultural town supporting avocado and pineapple plantations as well as dairy cattle. The town has had three names over the years. Firstly, known as Hamilton after a farmer named Hugh Hamilton who was the appointed Receiving Officer for mail in 1875. In 1892, the town became known as Terrors Creek and in 1866, the third and final name selected was Dayboro after William Henry Day who was a notable settler in the area.

Love Community

This event showcases what the locals love about their town. It is not a competition. Photographs for the event have been received in electronic form with a short story about the photograph. Love Community will be held in the Lions Park near the bridge on Williams Street.

Love Creativity

This event will be held in BBL Park, which is the usual market site opposite IGA and the centre of the town. Love Creativity is an artisan market highlighting the high quality of creativity in the region and showcasing cottage type industries and hobbies. All items are handmade and site preferences have been given to those in the Moreton Bay Region.
