November 2021 Editor’s Note

Wow, weren’t we feeling lucky to be present for the front cover photoshoot. The little baby koala is only 10 months old and just as cheeky as our little 10 month old girl. A day in Kuranda is never enough for our kids, with so much to see from the Koala Gardens, Birdworld, Butterfly Sanctuary, Mini Golf and of course icecream is always on the list. One lucky reader will be able to visit Koala Gardens, Birdworld & Hartley’s anytime they like for free! Go to our website to enter your chance to win a free Mega Wildcard which gives unlimited entry for the whole family for 12 months.

Speaking of animals, we have swapped out the Kids on the Tablelands section for our furry friends, with an article on Dog Friendly Dining (p8).
It’s that time of year again, where everything gets busy and the end of year festivities begin. Please support our local businesses who have so much to offer, from local creatives to boutique shops, we are spoilt for choice. Check out the BIG Shop Local Feature on p14-19 to get inspired. Malanda Christmas Street Festival will certainly get us in the spirit, so be sure to mark your calendar for the 25th of November.
We hope you enjoy this issue of What’s On!
