They're red, sweet and juicy — and they're everyone's favourite fruit. They're also grown in abundance around Queensland. Did you know that 40 percent of the state's strawberries come from the Moreton Bay region?
Well, you do now, and you might just want to celebrate that fact. All you need to do is head on over to Bribie Island on Saturday, August 18 for Sandstone Point Hotel's fourth annual Strawberry Festival, and you can do just that.
Because you can never have too much of a good thing, the event will paint the pub pink with farm-fresh strawberries, strawberry milkshakes, strawberry ice cream, scones with strawberry jam, and chocolate-coated strawberries. If you're still hungry for more, a strawberry-eating competition is also on the agenda. Then, wash it all down at The Strawberry Patch Bar, the fest's onsite watering hole that only serves strawberry-flavoured beverages.
