It’s that time of the year again— the sun sets sooner, the Mac’s getting cooler, the garden’s slowing its pace, the grass regaining its colour and the fruit trees have shed nearly all their leaves.
And our woodshed is looking a little sad L What’s left of the wood looks more like kindling these days…
Yup, its time for Wollangarra’s annual Wood Chop extravaganza!
So put on ya flannies and lumber-up!
There’ll be wood-splittin’ galore, warm, hearty soups and of course, toasty fires to thaw by after a brave dip in the icy Mac.
Bring your family, mates, musical instruments, winter woollies, sleeping gear and some food for sharing.
Here’s some extra deets:

What to bring:
– We’ll be planning a menu so be sure to ask about what food you can bring to contribute when you ring to RSVP
– Warm clothes & waterproofs
– Sleeping gear (i.e. tent, sleeping bag, mattress)
– Closed-toe footwear

If you are planning on catching the train and getting a lift from the staff please call to let them know if you haven’t already done so, so staff know how many vehicles to bring to town.
