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 around 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 Sandstone Point from midday on Sunday, September 24 for the returning Strawberry and Dessert Festival.

Because you can never have too much of a good thing, this Sandstone Point Hotel event will paint the pub pink with farm-fresh strawberries — and strawberry milkshakes, strawberry ice cream, scones with strawberry jam and chocolate-coated strawberries are all usually on the menu. So is a strawberry-eating competition and a bar serving strawberry-flavoured cocktails.

As you might've noticed, this isn't just a strawberry festival. It's a showcase of many a sweet treat as well. Basically, arrive hungry — and wear something stretchy — as you prepare to devour desserts aplenty.

Also on the lineup: cooking demonstrations, spanning strawberries and desserts; dessert cocktail-making demos as well; and live tunes and rides for kids.

Tickets cost $13.60, and you'll pay for whatever you eat and drink.
