The rain held off long enough for 200 guests to enjoy a fabulous evening of food, wine and music under the stars at Thallon earlier this month.
With "The Watering Hole" mural on the Thallon Grain Corp Silos providing a spectacular backdrop, guests were greeted by beautifully set tables adorned with floral displays and individual grazing boxes all created by Kelly from Heart Heart Events as they arrived.
Thallon Progress Association secretary Leanne Brosnan said the event was a huge success, with all profits from the evening going to the Thallon Progress Association to help support future community projects.
"Local band 'When Sonny Getz Blue' entertained the crowd with their mellow tunes, Riversands Wines flowed freely and complimented the mouth-watering, slow-cooked meats prepared to perfection by Harry Siddens and partnered with delicious salads and scrumptious desserts all created by the incredible Donna Haslem from The Farm House in St George," she said.
"Everyone's hearts were stolen by the young people from the Big Buddies Program who provided table service on the night, supported by the incredible volunteers from Redland Bay Rotary.
"Other highlights of the evening were the auction of live art painted by Drapl, one of the silo mural artists, and an incredible fireworks display by Sparky's Fireworks."
Grazing at the Watering Hole was funded under The Year of Outback Tourism Events Program and with sponsorship from the Balonne Shire Council, Campbell's fuels Goondiwindi, Aust Brokers Dalby, Grain Corp, B&W Rural, Ag n Vet and Queensland Cotton.
