CBR Equine Cottage, Amamoor

Looking for an escape for the extended family? And by that I mean you, the kids, your pooch AND your equine family member! This delightful cottage set on the hillside at Amamoor might be just the ticket. And If you don’t have a horse of your own, you can enjoy visiting those who reside here.


Sweet as ….

Do you remember these sugary love hearts? Sweethearts, conversation lollies, call them what you like but they were a bit of fun when I was growing up.  Boys and girls who had managed to overcome the boy or girl germs shared these or left them in places where their latest “crush” would find them – ah, those were the days!


Did you know that 90 odd percent of the world’s supply of these particular sweets are made right here in Queensland?  Just 169km south east of Brisbane in the Darling Downs region you’ll find Pittsworth Confectionery. This is the same company that makes the candy Easter eggs that you’re probably already seeing in your local supermarket.
