Today brings the beginning of the Fun Over Fifty Inaugural Lawn Bowls Championship! Two mornings of lawn bowls with friendly competition suited to beginners or advanced bowlers. Take to the greens with other travellers to partake in a morning of fun and laughs and no doubt a little competitiveness! After the last bowl is sent down to the jack, we make our way to the Queensland College of Wine Tourism to wind down and who will present us with locally sourced medley of mains paired to local wines. The excitement continues this afternoon, as we take in the Law Dogs Australia, “A Dog Show with Bite”. Dinner this evening is at Blue Pot Pantry.

Day two of our friendly lawn bowls competition today as we return to the Stanthorpe Bowls Club greens and send the jack down ready for another morning of mixed competition. A few prizes are on offer today and of course the crowning of the winners of the inaugural competition! Rest, unwind, share stories and celebrate afterwards as we take a tour, tasting and lunch in the Barrel Room of the Ballandean Estate Winery. Tempt your taste buds with amazing sensations and maybe pick up a bottle or two to take home. Next, we make our way to the Jamworks Larder who stock local jams, butters, marmalades, jellies, pickles and much more. After a well-earned rest back at the hotel, we dine this evening at Anna’s Italian Restaurant.

We farewell Stanthorpe and travel via Warwick to Bestbrook Mountain Resort for morning tea and wagonride. Enjoy old fashioned hospitality and magnificent mountain views. Admire the collection of old machinery and treasures from yesteryear hidden throughout the Coach House. Back on the road, we take a scenic country drive via Boonah to Beaudesert where we enjoy a long lunch at The Overflow Estate 1895. The Estate is truly a special haven of mystic reverence and unsurpassed rural beauty and this long lunch will be a grand finale to our first ever lawn bowls tour.
