House and Garden Tour - 21st November

Do you live in or around the Mitchell Shire? If so then you might want to take advantage of this opportunity to came and check out our place - a FREE tour!

The Mitchell Shire Council staff, including the CEO, came on a private tour of our property in July. I received some very positive feedback, and was asked to run a tour for residents in the shire to show how we have reduced our environmental impact. The tour will run on Saturday the 21st of November from 1pm to 2:30pm. If you are interested in coming along, please
