Being local

Went for a walk in the Gatton National Park this morning, which is 10 minutes driving distance from the Gatton Town.

The park was cornered by the houses. A new moved bungalow was set up just beside the bush trail. This area is next the Woodlands Estate. Opposite is another new building estate called Woodchester, cornered by the Gost Gully salad farm done by hydroponics.

On the right side, it is the Lake Apex, the Lockyer Culture Centre was close by the lake, where Gatton Library, Gallery, information Centre and Cafe, where you can ask the information staff for free wireless password.

Low tide time, birds, ducks, geese were swarming for breadcrumbs.

Fresh air went through the shady woods, it was cool to read. In the summer, you could smell the lemon scent from the trees. There is even a grove of Queensland bush forest.

Gatton seems booming with real estates. It is a good place to live, lots of spaces.

The local farm houses united together and open houses on the first Sunday of each month. Lockyer valley has 4 places for food trails while Scenic Rim has two for foraging. Their site is Local organic farm Bauer’s provides fresh garlic, veggie, fresh Dutch cream, potatos for door sales and pickup by online order. Now with the first Sunday coming, it becomes very exciting and provides tourist a chance to see the place.

Cheers! That is what I like to see.  Absolutely I would put on some information on my Facebook tastebudsinaustralia and organic trails on my site of
