Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

What is small, red, juicy and totally delicious to eat? Strawberries, of course! We all love strawberries and what better way to celebrate these divine little gifts from nature than by having a Strawberry Festival.

Traffic considerations

Please factor the likelihood of congestion along Bribie Island Road to and from the Strawberry Festival, into your total travel time. Perhaps consider taking a detour to avoid part of Bribie Island Rd. Drive via Beachmere Rd and back up Peel Rd onto Bribie Island Road, then turn left at the roundabout onto Bestmann Road through Ningi.

Oh my gosh, I can barely contain myself, what a yum way to spend a day!

I am so looking forward to visiting the Sandstone Point Hotel as it so often seems to be the venue for fun events. You know what? I am allergic to strawberries!!!!!!! A fun article though and am sure it will be a good day
