Escape to the Country - BOONAH

This past long weekend we decided to go to the country and explore the great south east, we went to Boonah, we have been meaning to go there for a while now the last time we went we only had one munchkin and now well we are a whole tribe.
I can't believe how easy the drive was from Brisbane to Boonah, only one hour away and you feel like you are world apart. We arrived early Saturday morning the local farmer's markets were on, they are small but people are so friendly, the kids had a good play in the playground, we met a really nice lady who makes handmade baby goods and hats, we bought one for baby munchkin.
After the markets we spend quite a while around Boonah town centre, everyone is so friendly in small country towns. We didn't have time to go to the Winery and Lavender farm but I have been there previously and from memory it is a good way to spend some time wandering the fields of lavender or enjoying a meal and some of the wines they produce.
We got a lovely surprise phone call from a friend late Saturday, she was also there for the long weekend in her country home so we decided to make the trip there again on Sunday for morning tea with them, it was a lovely way to spend our last day, the kids had a great time playing in the cubbyhouse and riding the billycart that my friend’s husband had made, while we enjoyed a cuppa and some cake that I had made for the occasion, as well as enjoying the amazing view from atop Boonah overlooking the whole town and surrounds.
The Boonah Society Show is on the 17th may if you are interested in an old fashion country society show this may be your cup of tea.
Well we had a lovely long weekend but now I am back to reality a pile of washing awaits me.
