Yungaburra, the Gem of the Tableland

Saturday morning brought sunshine and excitement. Today the markets were on in Yungaburra. It has been many years since we have attended them so we were looking forward to it.

There many market stalls each with their own unique attraction. There was homemade timber furniture, soaps, candles, jams, fruit stalls, coffee stops, pancakes, sugar cane juice being made to order and lots of young budding musicians trying to earn their dollar. We spent a couple of hours looking around, tasting things and, of course, purchasing. Yungaburra itself was alive. There are plenty of little cafés and eateries that popped up in the streets over the years. It’s a town well worth the visit.

Over on the edge of Lake Tinaroo in Yungaburra is the Avenue of Honour which was opened a few years ago by then Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, to honour the fallen men, women and their canine companions in Afghanistan. A beautiful spot by the Lake for a memorial to such wonderful people. The words on some of the plaques were beautiful and brought a tear to the eye.

After looking around here we then headed back to Malanda and an afternoon of preparation for homemade pizzas. It was the perfect day for resting dough in the sun. After heating our Weber and pizza stone to the right temperature the pizzas were cooked and eaten in no time. Rus and Gladys enjoyed watching them being made, seeing them cooked in something other than an oven and enjoyed eating them at the end. Even if I say so they turned out to be the best ones yet.

Another great day was had by all here in Malanda. Until next time, cheers. Xo
