Crystal Waters

Crystal Waters Offers Reclusive Markets

 

THE FIRST things noticed about market day at the Crystal Waters community is just how many people attend the so-called remote location on market day; the second is the beautiful overarching canopy provided by the huge shade trees at the market site. The markets are held on the first Saturday of each month, providing the range of usual market fare, but with an organic and natural edge – clothing, health products, tasty food, organic fruit and vegetables, coffee outlets, and even organic ice cream.

Falls Farm helping create unique restaurant menus

IMAGINE AN organic vegetable, fruit and herb farm that hosts visits from south east Queensland’s best chefs, who then return to their restaurants and create menus based on what they have tasted and seen. The Falls Farm at Mapleton, not far from the Mapleton Falls National Park, is doing just that. In the process it’s becoming a key player in a wave that’s sweeping through the blue ribbon restaurant sector – the variety, quality and flavours of the produce and herbs available is dictating the meals that are created. “I think that’s where […]

To transport the cane back to the mill for processing they purchased their first steam driven Shay locomotive in 1904, the “Dulong”. Shay locomotives are not of the effeminate Thomas the Tank Engine lineage. The […]
