Picnic at Fairymead
Enjoy a picnic on the picturesque lawns of Fairymead House in the Bundaberg Botanic Gardens for the Picnic at Fairymead.

If sipping wine and nibbling on local goodies in an historic garden setting sounds like the best way to spend a Sunday then don’t miss Picnic at Fairymead.

Set on the picturesque lawns of Fairymead House overlooking the historic homestead and beautiful Botanic Gardens, picnic goers can spread their blanket and relax to the sound of live local music.

Bundaberg Regional Council Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said it was exciting to offer this new event, especially considering the popular Farm Flavours Picnic was unable to go ahead.

“Our picnic events are incredibly popular, in fact the last one sold out in about 20 minutes,” Cr Learmonth said.

“Whether you’re a couple, a family or a group of friends this picnic is the ultimate way to spend a Sunday afternoon in our beautiful region enjoying local produce and drinks.”

Picnic at Fairymead hampers for two will be available for $90 and will include beer or wine, with additional drinks available for purchase.

To ensure the event meets COVID safe regulations, kids hampers must also be purchased for this event for $10.

“Numbers are limited for this event so booking is essential and we expect this event will sell out just as quickly as similar picnics have in the past,” Cr Learmonth added.

“A strings and piano trio will serenade picnic goers to create a relaxing atmosphere.

“Bring your blanket or chairs and enjoy local produce on the lawns of Fairymead House.”

Bookings will open on Monday, 14 September at 9am at whatsonbundaberg.com.au, by phoning 4130 4100 or booking in person at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre.

Picnic at Fairymead will be held at Fairymead House from 11am to 3pm on Sunday, 11 October.
