Festival double whammy this weekend

A good festival can provide hours of fun for individuals of all ages, filling up a day with smiles, laughter and boundless joy. By the time you walk around, see the sights, sample the stalls and experience a sense of community, you're lost in a daze, checking you watch and wondering where the time has gone.

Just as well that anybody who lives in real estate in Morayfield, Narangba, Deception Bay and other parts of the Moreton Bay region has not one but two great festivals to attend this weekend. We've already mentioned the Redcliffe Festival, which is set to last for two weeks starting from 29 August. Local residents will also be happy to hear there is another event, for one day only, that will be held the day after on 30 August: The Lowlands Festival.

From 11:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., and for absolutely no charge, families can come down to the Osprey Environment Centre on the corner of Dohles Rocks Road and Castle Hill Drive and enjoy the sights and sounds of the event. There will be face painting and craft activities, such as Crazy Candle making and Bunnings bird box construction, as well as a variety of native wildlife exhibits, such as Gecko Wildlife Shows and the Radical Reptiles. 

In addition to this, water canoeing through the mangrove wetlands will be available for all attendees over the age of ten, while Apex Albany Creek will cook a barbecue lunch. The entire event is aimed at bridging the gap between the community and the local ecosystem.

With one great festival following hot on the heels of another, it's easy to see why so many people want to buy property in Burpengary and other parts of the Moreton Bay region. If you already own some, then make your way down to the festivities this Sunday.
