Ok market goers.....mark this one in your calendar!


If you love historic homes, then you will love "Rockton". The owners Wybe and Angela Geertsma have kindly opened the doors to their home to host "An Evening of Elegance". An annual event organised by the Ipswich Girls Grammar Old Girls Association.

Sample some local wines, and enjoy the selection of cheese on offer. There will be a fashion parade, showcasing some of our local talent. Lyn from Ookee will be showing some of her beautiful designs, along with some other well known labels...

The night is an opening for the Rockton Market. To be held the following day in the gardens of "Rockton." Enjoy local Arts, Crafts, Jewellery, Candles, Calligraphy, Bric-a-Brac and be transported back in time, with the Australian Costumer's Guild. In keeping with the Q150 celebrations there will be a display of 19 Century costumes worn by ladies from the Australian Costumer's Guild.

Wybe and Angela will be offering guided tours of "Rockton" an absolute must, as I hear there was once a ghost residing in "Rockton". Or was that just a rumour. You will have to ask Angela all about it.

See you there... Tickets for "An evening of Elegance" are $30.00, to be held Friday 8th May, 6:30pm. Hurry they will sell out quick! Contact Julie McNeill on 0448845281 or Kym Powell on 0416073061.
