After a hot summer the Toowoomba region is experiencing more frequent cool nights and pleasant days, perfect for the upcoming country show season, food festivals and arts activities. Kiambram Country Cottages Eco Farmstay is central to the grand Heritage Bank Toowoomba Royal Show and the small country town Oakey show. We are no more than 25 minutes to Goombungee, Hampton and down town Toowoomba.
Exhibiting until February 27th at Rosalie Gallery, Goombungee is "A man's version of a doll's house" (early Australian rural life) by model maker Rob Prentice.
Summer Tunes live music at Goombungee War Memorial park Sunday 28th.
Emerging artist Kerrie Thorne will also exhibit "Finding My Way" at Rosalie during most of March with a meet and greet on Saturday March 6th.
Like older art? Slip into the Toowoomba Regional Gallery for paintings from the Lindsay Collection mid Feb to mid March.
Scheduled for Saturday March 13th Oakey Show will this year host the "smOking the dOwns" competition - smells good!
April 16th to 18th will see the 157th Toowoomba Royal with high level competition, sideshow action and entertainment aplenty. A great family outing to end the school holidays!
And in May we have..... The Hampton Food Festival!!! Make sure you research this one and book your accommodation early.
Opening in 2020 we have hosted a wide variety of couples, groups and families who have loved the simplicity and serenity of their country break with the option to just enjoy solitude or venture out to enjoy the myriad of attractions and activities on offer nearby.
Any time of year is perfect for a drive up the New England to visit our High Country Hamlets friends; book a horse ride at Cowboy Up Trail Riding, Tastings at Pechey Homestead Distillery or buy that special piece for your home from Venus and Harley photographic studio (put this talented duo's creations on your wish list anyway). Scrumptious local food along this trail too!
This winter will see the inception of a new High Country Hamlets festival with multi events running over the whole season; keep posted on our FB & IG socials @kiambram. Toowoomba Bed & Breakfast
