BIGGENDEN tourism is boom­ing with the RV Stopover and car­a­van sites packed, it is won­der­ful to have so many trav­el­ling visi­tors.

To add to all the great events that are con­stantly be­ing or­gan­ised by faith­ful vol­un­teers the Biggenden Coun­try Mar­kets have evolved into a ma­jor event pro­mot­ing Biggenden and all sur­round­ing ar­eas.

Giv­ing a chance for all res­i­dents to meet so­cially and catch up with friends and fam­ily.

Biggenden Men’s Shed from 8am will have their sausage siz­zle, cold drinks, car boot sale at $5 per site fee, raf­fle and tours of their shed.

The Den Com­mu­nity Craft Shop will be open of­fer­ing a va­ri­ety of stalls in­clud­ing jew­ellery, gar­den or­na­ments and dec­o­rated tow­els.

Fresh fruit and veg­eta­bles and a new range of herbs will also be for sale.

The CWA ladies will have their yummy morn­ing teas and their ever pop­u­lar CWA cook books for sale and book fair.

The Grand and the Com­mer­cial ho­tels have some sur­prises lined up for all and the Biggenden busi­nesses will have some spe­cial prices on goods that you will not want to miss.

These coun­try mar­kets will con­tinue on the third Satur­day of each month so mark your cal­en­dars and join in the fun - the suc­cess of all events is up to the com­mu­nity.

The more visi­tors we bring to the Biggenden area the more our econ­omy will grow.

We en­cour­age res­i­dents to come along and have a ta­ble and show off your hob­bies and your crafts, giv­ing our visi­tors and lo­cals a chance to en­joy your pas­sion.
