Why I love the country…

I’ve just written an article about ‘Willalooka on the green’.

For those that don’t know, which would be all of you, as only those who hail from Willalooka (all 8 of them) can know what it is, it’s basically ‘A day on the green’ event, but a low key country pub version.

What I LOVE is that, firstly, you don’t need to buy a wine glass to have wine.

You don’t need to buy a figure hugging dress from Kookai, get a spray tan, hair extensions, heels, clutch and a manicure to look like you belong, for what, the sake of 5 hours? To be honest, if I did that, I would probably lose my heels, extensions clutch and wine glass after a bottle or two. Which would be a damn wast of hundreds of dollars.

There are wineries coming out for the day, but normal bar facilities are also available. (Try asking for a glass of coke at a wine festival. I dare you. And I know your thinking why would anyone ask for a glass of coke at a wine festival, and the answer is because they need something to drink the southern comfort in their flask with, because you can’t order southern comfort at a wine festival either, and can’t afford a glass of wine because it is $16 if you include the glass it comes in as well.)

There is a courtesy bus from Keith, which is actually about 60kms away, that only costs $5 per person, and will just keep driving back and forth until there are no people left to transport.

But, the BEST thing…camping. You can bring a tent or a swag, as opposed to a picnic rug and stay the night.14639870_1195952507162977_7790048067054562230_n.jpg

Not only this, but there is also brekky and coffee provided in the morning for ‘sore heads’.



This is why I love the country.

Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty that I don’t love about the country as well.

But for now, I’m focusing on the good. Because sometimes, that’s all you can do.
