Shoot for next year. Womadelaide or Feast. And I know the place for pie floaters!
What time of year are you talking? I have no clue when these things are on.

Now, if you want wine in Clare Valley, you hafta go to Seven Hills monastery. It's a little more interesting than yer average winery. Mini, will you plump for a night at Martindale Hall for us all?
Oh you can count me in with that!

That's the place in Queensland that scares me.

All of Darling Downs, actually, but especially the Granite Belt.

*It seems to be either primarily farmland, or exclusively farmland,
so it seems likely that no companies that could employ me would want an offfice out that way, anyways.

We did actually, as well as a pint of Lowenbrau at the Hahndorf Mill..it was cold and rainy, just right for such victuals. I had two kranskys..you could say I went from brat to wurst..or not.

I was happy the day I saw Lloyd Brothers open up a shop in Hahndorf. When I needed their garlic olives or tapenard I did not have to drive all the way to McClaren Vale any more -- Hahndorf is so much closer.

You never know! Depends on what kind of office! They're screaming out for services in most of the outback and remote areas, well in country areas in general. You might be able to corner the market if you have a service that farmers would want.

Don't think I'll have any cash come March. I'm expecting several months of living off lentils when I get back from the US.
Sea and vines sounds god though!

I've tried that stuff! It's horrid! I'll join you with a pack of redheads AND maybe some Darrel Lea soft eating?
