The Merry Muster came about from a desire to do something tangible for drought, bushfire and flood-affected regions of Queensland close to Brisbane & The Gold Coast. It’s a simple idea but an effective one – we take our Christmas shopping dollars and spend them in an area that desperately needs some love. Our guests enjoy a great day out and the bush businesses get additional income. It’s win win!
We will start the day heading out to Summer Land Camels in the beautiful Scenic Rim. This picturesque camel farm will play host to a huge Christmas market full to the brim with makers, bakers, creators and growers from all around the area. We will enjoy a gourmet morning tea, you can get a selfie with a camel or even have a ride on one! Plus, take time to explore the farm shop full of goodies and the farm itself.
Before we leave, grab lunch from one of the many onsite foodie vendors and enjoy, before we hop on our air conditioned coaches to our next stop. Rest your tired legs, show off your purchases or even have an afternoon nap before our arrival into Applethorpe.
Here, Buy From the Bush QLD will be hosting a boutique market full of amazing bush businesses from all over QLD at the Granite Belt Christmas Farm. We will enjoy a delicious afternoon tea with a glass of bubbles and have time to explore this fabulous farm which also boasts a huge onsite Christmas store. You can even feed some of Santa's animals or explore the Christmas tree forest where locals come and pick their fresh tree each year.
Plus, all attendees go into the drawer to win some seriously fabulous 'Lucky Guest Prizes' this year from all our wonderful sponsors!
Tickets are $100 per person and includes a full day itinerary, gourmet local produce morning tea, Merry Muster shopping tote, delicious afternoon tea including a glass of bubbles, wine tasting, donation to two chosen charities on the day and luxury air conditioned coach. Lunch can be purchased at your own cost from a range of local foodie vendors onsite at our first stop.
