Kay has been busy planning a unique shopping experience for the SCQ Retreat Townsville 2012 Monday 2nd July 2012. The Shopping Bus Trip will take in, not only FNQ patchwork shops, but the gorgeous vista of outback Queensland.

How can we manage this? Kay resides in nearby Charters Towers, where we will rest up from our retail extravaganza, for lunch. After lunch Kay has organised for us to be treated to a tour extraordinaire of this fascinating town by an amazing local tour guide.
Charters Towers is a montage of Australian heritage, and once the second largest city in Queensland, it is as rich in history as it is in gold.
Charters Towers promises gold, greed, ghosts and grandeur. Indeed this is a destination that deserves more than a day.
And to recover from all this action there will be further opportunity for patchwork related retail on the return trip to Townsville.
Kay relaxing after all that hard work organising the tour!
