Caught on film....

Catch a peak at what's on offer in our region by watching 'Creek to Coast' this Saturday on Channel 7 at 5pm.

As part of their Caravan Trip you have the opportunity to see some of what the Southern Downs Region has to offer.

A little birdy told me that there should be a few interesting appearances by locals???

Well, time will tell - 5pm Saturday on Channel 7pm. DON'T MISS IT!

Jumpers & Jazz in July Update

One of my favourite times of year on the Southern Downs is winter and it's not far away. You wouldn't believe that just two hours from Brisbane the temperature could be so different.
If you venture over cunninghams gap onto the Darling Downs you will find a real winter where you can huddle up next to a fire and read a book or head outdoors with scarf, coat and hat to experience the Jumpers & Jazz in July Festival. Check out awesome art displays, performances, live music and more. The official program is set to be released on the 1st June and the gig guide is really heating up. Don't miss out this year - have a real winter!

Spot the competition!

Have you seen an excess of joggers on the streets and in the parks of Warwick recently?

You might think the cooler mornings would keep the fitness freaks confined to the gym...

Well here's a hint - it's only a week until the Pentath-Run.

Each year competition heats up and not just among the professionals - it's also your everyday challenge. With friend against friend, colleague against colleague, challenging each other months in advance to take part in Pentath - 5 races in 2 days!

The catch - they forget to train??? In some cases forget to race!! oops! Certainly not the professionals. But yes some individuals thinks it's a fine idea (never having seen the inside of a gym) to challenge a friend or their boss to race. I'm certainly not advising anyone to take part in anything dangerous! But if you're reasonably fit, even if its a social walk with your friends - Join in the fun of the Pentath-Run!

Prayer for Peace

The banks of the Condamine River in Queens Park Warwick, set the scene for a peaceful gathering on Saturday 2nd May. It was Peace in the Park, the last Saturday in the Peace Festival's program.

As the poetry ended, I munched away on mini pancakes and sipped on a perfect coffee (by La Gourmet Coffee Cart Chef). The crisp Autumn air, the warm sun and the beatiful condamine river - set the scene for peace. Next up was a sneak peak at the Mandala the Tibetan Monks from the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery were working on. Then a meander through the markets clustered along the riverbank - searching for treasures and exploring the wide range of environmental education displays.

The entertainment kicked off with an early start with a line up for the whole day!!

This mini-festival was just one aspect of the 'Peace Festival' that enveloped Warwick for 12 days.
The next Peace Wave should engulf Warwick in 2011 - we can't wait!
