Daily draws- with Bottles of wine1 (Bony Mountain Dew) and some great prizes! Our new venue was a big hit!  nice to have everyone undercover!  

SPRINGTIME AT BONY MOUNTAIN

A bit of excitement! never a dull moment-special thanks to our wonderful Neighbours!  Warren-  Gary & the other Warren- much interest in the Tractors! Lucky for us they were not needed on Monday/Tuesday everyone just drove out!  but a week later we got another inch of rain!  So big road repairs underway once everything dries out!    

OUR TRACTOR FEST!

BIG BLUE TRACTOR- our local heroes to the rescue!  Gary - & Warren -Bony Mountain ! Looks worse than it was- had to call them in a couple of times! but everyone was fascinated with the Tractors!  So I dubbed it our (Tractor Fest) . by Monday it was all dried out- a few Campers stayed til Tuesday- and everyone just drove out!  I feel we dodged a bullet! but it kept everyone amused anyway! Narrabri big (Cotton Fest) is cancelled- as is Clarence Valley Festival- such a shame - all the work -to end up with nothing to show!! 

  • BIG RED TRACTOR-

    The big red Tractor created plenty of interest! Our water table was so wet- the heavier vehicles sank into the mud! But this had so much Horse power! Big thanks to Warren- our nearest neighbor!

  • BIG BLUE TRACTOR

    She might be an older model- but plenty of grunt! big thanks to Gary!

  • GHOST BRUMBIES!

    A lady in Melbourne made these for us! they looked spectacular! I was planning a Brumby-special-and was going to perform my new song! Sunday night- but sadly- lost my voice! came down with a bug! But their song will be recorded soon!
