From the Desk & Upcoming Events

From the desk:

The Flinders is certainly looking beautiful at the moment. Some early rains and warm days have helped turn the countryside green which is a picture not to be missed!   We have finally got around to posting the beautiful pictures taken by Peter MacDonald (The Sentimental Bloke), I hope you like them as much as we do.

Take care on the roads...see you soon!
