Can I consider myself local if I have only lived in a place for 6 1/2 years? Some say maybe not.! BUT, I do love this place, Queanbeyan, that is my home town!
As with any town much of its goodness and uniqueness is hidden to outsiders. Canberra has always struggled with the very incorrect ‘boring roundabouts public service town’ tag and Queanbeyan has had an image from the outside that isn’t reflected in reality!!
Queanbeyan has a lively arts sector, healthy business sector, wonderful sporting prowess and a surprising food and entertainment life!
The #VisitQueanbeyan tag is being used as we want to showcase our hidden gems to the wider community. We have much to be proud of hence this article in the Queanbeyan Age
The local community have big hearts when it comes to helping others and this event will be no exception. All monies raised from this event goes to http://www.treehouse.org.au Special Needs Children’s Group
A few of us got together and the #VisitQueanbeyan Progressive Dinner Party was born.
The three hotels (Hotel Queanbeyan, Tourist Hotel and Walshs Hotel) involved have all been recently renovated and look fabulous. They are providing a FREE bus from Kingston for Canberra guests and back again at the end of the evening. There will be an auction of local art works by local artists, including FINK‘s Robert Foster, Claire Primrose from FORM Gallery and others. There will be live music and the launch of the #VisitQueanbeyan Cocktail!
