Buy from the bush this Christmas

Date Posted:22 October 2019 

There have been so many supportive initiatives created by everyday people to support rural and regional businesses during this ongoing drought. We really appreciate everyone who sends us messages and shares regional our social media posts - your thoughtfulness doesn't go unnoticed.

Here are a few of our favourite ideas for supporting the bush this Christmas:

  • Bush Christmas - This annual exhibition is held every November/December in Toowoomba. There is a wide range of curated vendors (including us!) who send their hand-crafted wares. Wednesday 27 November - Friday 6 December, Masonic Centre, 58 Neil Street, Toowoomba.
  • Buy from the Bush is an Instagram and Facebook campaign highlighting rural businesses with great Christmas gift ideas.
  • Wine into Water is an initiative of several Granite Belt wineries that are donating profits into water relief efforts in the region.  A six-pack of local wine makes a wonderful Christmas present.
  • Art for Bales - this Instagram campaign had artists from across Australia donating their work to raise money for Rural Aid.
