Christmas time has arrived in Tyalgum. The magical Christmas Shop at Flutterbies Cottage Cafe is offering some of the most exquisite Christmas gifts and decorations you’ll find in the region. The village of Tyalgum is full of Christmas activities this year, with the Christmas Marketta every Saturday until Christmas, from 9am–3pm. The Marketta offers unique hand crafted treasures and gifts, and live music on the stage. The highlight of the season is the Flutterbies Christmas Dinner on Saturday, December 8. The evening features a delicious three-course dinner, a champagne cocktail on arrival at 7pm, followed by performances by the Redland Ladies Drum Corps, Night Markets, and entertainment on the lawn. There will live theatre performances, and a special appearance by Tyalgum’s own indie folk band The Heart Collectors, as well as a visit from Santa. Seats are still available for the dinner, but get in quick as this one sells out. $70 per person includes three-course dinner and champagne cocktail on arrival. For bookings, contact Flutterbies on 02 6679 3221. The Flutterbies Christmas Shop is open every day 8am–5pm, and Tuesdays 8am–3pm.
