A taste of Coal­stoun Lakes on bus tour

Central and North Burnett Times - - LIFE -

THIS com­ing Sun­day the Coal­stoun Lakes De­vel­op­ment Group will host the Tastes of Coal­stoun Lakes Tour as part of the North Bur­nett Heart­land Fes­ti­val.

The tour aims to show­case the pro­duce of the rich agri­cul­tural re­gion.

It will also on fo­cus raising some funds to keep the Coal­stoun Lakes De­vel­op­ment Group in op­er­a­tion.

The CLDG con­sists of res­i­dents of Coal­stoun Lakes who are pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing a sus­tain­able fu­ture for agri­cul­ture in the re­gion.

Event or­gan­iser Sarah Aberdein said it would be great to show off Coal­stoun Lakes’ “lit­tle patch of par­adise”.

She said she hoped the tour would ex­cite some peo­ple as to what the fu­ture could look like for the re­gion.

“I was ap­proached by Heart­land Fes­ti­val or­gan­iser Re­nee McGil­very in re­gards to par­tic­i­pat­ing in this year’s fes­ti­val,” she said.

Ms Aberdein, along with the com­mit­tee, de­cided a tour was the way to go.

“The CLDG de­cided that it would be a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to in­tro­duce peo­ple to the area as well as tak­ing some time to ap­pre­ci­ate what we can achieve as farm­ers.”

The menu for the tour has been de­signed and sup­ported by lo­cal busi­nesses and pro­duc­ers, boast­ing five pro­gres­sive cour­ses across four dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions.
