The View from across the Ballun River.

Wood Fire Pizza were available throughout the day.

You can see why we stays for so many hours strolling the avenues of Old Olive Trees and sitting comfortable under the tarps to enjoy the Live Music of The Fergies, Margy Rowe, Shee Tree, Susie Colley and Lovely voices of The Scenic Rim Community Choir. The weather was kind to us with only a couple of gentle sprinkles. See you all there next year.

Graham and I had a lovely time at Lost World, Art's in the Olives, 2017. Held on the property ' Jingerri Jingerri, traditional lands of the Mingunburri People. It was the 10th Anniversary for the Event, and has grown bigger and bigger every year. I am not sure how old the Olive Trees are but there are around 3 Avenues of tall graceful trees forming arches. The trunks are thick and gawled, showing that they are of some age. The trees are no longer harvested but do produce. There were Arts and Craft Classes going on amongst the Olives, Water Painting, Lino Printing, Aboriginal Painting and More.

The Arts, Crafts, Artisan Cheesemakers, Local Wine and Food Stalls were on each side of the Olive Trees, the trees making a beautiful backdrop.

Plant and Organic Herb Stalls were there with a large variety to choose from, I came home with some French Tarragon to replace mine as I had used it all up on a Tarragon Barossa Chook I made a few weeks ago, and of course I couldn't resist a couple of Salvias I was after.

One of the Herb Stalls had the most wonderful Finger Lime plants, 60-70cms tall, grafted and very healthy, all under $40.00. I sighed, pity I have as many as I can fit in.

The Beautiful Picturesque Ballun River runs through the property with more Stalls and Classes on both sides with Olive Trees growing throughout.Blacksmithing Class
