I’m Goodbye Queensland….tremendous time had by this wine gal!

12.57pm, Sunday 10th July, Brisbane Airport, Queensland, Australia

Afternoon folks – it’s been a big week in this particular wine road warrior’s world. After a brilliant run through Far North Queensland, it was a three night stand in Brisbane, then one night only in three consecutive parts of Queensland – Toowoomba, Noosa Heads, and The Sunshine Coast. This is all staunch Yalumba wine country, thanks to the great efforts of some fabulous S Smith & Son reps ……Jayney, Steele, Jamie, Juddy you know who you are – who have built and maintained a string of local ‘fortresses’ for our wines – each and every one of them pleased to see us each year as we do our annual Rare & Fine circuit. I only wish there were more days in each week, so that I could spend some time in these spots – check the spectacular views!


Bribie Island, Sunshine Coast


In front of the Noosa Heads Surf Life Saving Club


Also Noosa Heads, panoramic shot didn’t work properly, but the scenery was still pretty good!
So any rate, here’s a quick hop skip and a jump through some of what we were up to in our last week of the domestic Rare & Fine roadshow – coast to coast across the country. We started in Perth back on May 15th, and we finished last night in Brisbane………19 towns in all! In Brisbane  we did our first event with ‘the worst vegetarian restaurant’ in town! 

Yep, that would be the meat lovers from The Norman Hotel.


We did a business folks’ lunch in The Longhorn Room, and it went so well that we now have an annual event on our hands! Yay! One can never have too much excellent steak on one’s horizon!
