Wongari Eco Retreat


The Festival of the Farm Gate

Keep Saturday June the 25th free because it is ‘Festival of the Farm Gate’ time again. Part of the Scenic Rim ‘Eat Local Week’ it is a great day for visitor and residents of the great South East. It is especially good for us here on Christmas Creek as this is the first time we will be featuring a rare and locally sourced Vintage Car collection. From the back of these utes and sulkies farm fresh groceries locally sourced will be available for the discerning buyer. We hope to see you all here for a great weekend. Make a full weekend of it and plan ahead by visiting our Farm Gate Festival web site.

Below is a copy of the invite our collective, theLostWorld, dropped in the letter boxes of locals. Our festival, it seems, is being warmly received as it is as much about community as the attraction for visitors.

Farm Gate Festival: coming to a gate near you – again

Dear Neighbour,

In a nutshell, operators on our tourist drive, the Kerry Valley and Christmas Creek Road via the Darlington Connection Road, and collectively known as the Lost World, are opening our gates and offering our produce and selected acitivities to all who wish to take part – yet again.

It follows on the last two year’s success so we are naturally very excited about it again this year. It has brought a new form of celebration into our region; it show-cases the diversity and quality of our region; and it will continue to give locals who have something to offer an opportunity to do just that. Travellers now see the Scenic Rim as a destination on its own merits. We have a lot to offer.

We would like to extend an open invitation to all those who are on our tourist drive to participate in this event on Saturday the 25th of June. Maybe you have a hobby, a food, a novelty or just excess produce and only need the incentive to offer it to an appreciative audience at your own farm gate. Maybe you might check out the drive yourself?
