We hope yesterday was exactly what you needed. Be it calm… or chaos. Filled with friends and laughter or just the two of you.
Christmas is experienced differently each year, your only requirement is to treasure the moments of joy, the memories of times past and the hope of tomorrow. 💝🎄
Merry Christmas to all our valued guests… boy do we have some exciting things to show you next year. The incredible amount of rain we have received combined with the river and overland flow coming over our little town, though isolating now, will bring joy, crop, employment, education, wildlife(flora and fauna) and hope. See you next year. 🥂🤠

Come explore something different.
Who knows… you might find an opportunity for yourselves. Balonne Shire offers employment, entertainment and community.
Isn’t this fantastic to see.
Devastating for some with the effects of high levels of overland flooding wiping out bumper crops, and on the flip side a huge blessing for many who rely on the river systems for their and their employees livelihood.
Please be patient with us, tours are postponed for the moment as it will take some time for not only this big wet to pass, but as you know Cubbie is a working farm and will take time to dry out so we can travel around safely.
Boy oh boy will it be worth the wait though. 🤠 🚜 🌾 🌱 💭 (imagine it’s a cotton boll).🧐
Thanks Jacque Hemming for the heads up on this story.
Water storage levels across the whole Basin are averaging >90% after widespread rain. Here’s a preview of the graphic that contains data updated on Wednesday which will be published on our website this coming Monday: https://bit.ly/3DSTJxO
If you come to Dirran to do a tour of Cubbie why not plan on spending a few days and discover Hebel.
It’s only 45minutes away. And on a stinking hot summers day that’s far enough to warrant a beer. 🍻🤠
Hands up if you've been to Hebel 🙋♀️
We ❤️ Hebel and the pub is a beauty! Come on a country adventure and experience it for yourself! 🚙
Some great things to see and do:
📍 Hebel Pub & old Gaol
📍 Hebel General Store & Caravan Park
📍 Hebel Historical Circle

So I started doing things a little different whilst on tour.
I started taking pictures for those who, like me sometimes get caught up in awe of their surroundings, that you say “Nooooo I forgot to take photos”. 🤦🏼♀️
With each tour we have something different occur, weather it’s an aerial show from the crop dusters, planters in action, harvesters in action, fauna showing us their latest offspring, trucks leaving fully loaded or grain pads being filled.
In all of that excitement I forgot about you. The locked out locked down armchair travellers. For this I’m sorry … so shall we play catch up.
Relax, grab a cuppa, and let’s see what been happening over the last month.
Part 1. Towards the end of season we take the smaller bus.
Today is world cotton day 🧵🪡👗🧦🌱💭🇦🇺 let’s celebrate 🥂🤠
Every weekend we get to take folk out to see a meticulously planned and maintained example of pure Aussie tenacity and imagination.
Sunday we were fortunate enough to have Liz join us on the tour.
A perfect afternoon and the only thing that we missed was the wild boar and a few families of emu. The bird life is devine and abundant, yes there’s trucks, tractors and machinery and then there’s the fields, rows and rows of laser level, gps guided ready for planting or already lush wheat.
Come see for yourself.
Thank you Liz for your write up. 🤠🥂
Coach tours are great fun. 🤠
This was a young active inquisitive group 😁🥂
