Celebrate Women Writers, and History at High Tea
What would delight you more? Hearing a great Queensland Writer speak about her writing? Visiting an amazingly restored Heritage Listed Hotel at Spring Hill and discovering how it has been modernised and restored? Or joining friends at a high tea?
You can do it all on Saturday July 8th, at Ovolo Inchcolm from 1.30 pm. And wait, there's more. But you will have to attend to see what else.
