This is a continuation of my last post about the Jumpers and Jazz Festival in Warwick which we visited on Monday. I took too many photos to put into one post so I hope you don't get bored with them.
After we left the Warwick Art Gallery which I mentioned in my last post we passed by this yarnbombed tree and then walked through the laneway to the Town Hall.
This old sandstone building is heritage listed and was built from 1887 to 1917.
I have many memories of this hall as I performed in lots of ballet and school concerts in there. Looking at it now I think it may have been very cold inside although I can't remember if it was.
This is the Downtown Lounge outside the Town Hall where you could sit on couches and listen to the music.
We then walked up Palmerin Street which used to be called ' The Main Drag' by the young men as they used to drive up and down for some reason unknown to myself :-) Most of the trees were yarnbombed and had different themes.
This lady was having a refreshing drink on a sunny day.....
...and this one was having a break from her knitting.
There was a picnic going on another another tree....
...and there was an attraction for all those with Scottish heritage who were visiting.
Several husbands had been ringing up the handicraft shops in town by the looks of it ;-)
...and when we got back to the Town Hall there was a seat waiting for us with a guitar to relax with.
If you happen to be in the Warwick area do make time to visit Killarney which is 35km (22 miles) from Warwick. The Queen Mary Falls are really worth seeing especially after rain. There is a Caravan Park and Cabins on site and the scenery is just spectacular. I think a couple of workshops during the festival were held in Killarney.
Also less than an hour's drive from Warwick is Stanthorpe on the Granite Belt which is famous for its wineries plus the occasional snowfall. My Northern Hemisphere readers must chuckle when they read about how excited Aussies get when it snows. LOL!
We live in a very scenic area where there is a lot to see and do so if you do have plans to visit in the future make sure you have plenty of time to have a good look around.
