We went to Warwick for the weekend.. Paul’s grandmother has a place there and she absolutetly loves it!! we pick her up in Brisbane and head to this country town…

Warwick is situated 160 kilometres south west of Brisbane and borders on fertile farmlands and the rolling hills of the Great Dividing Range. The Warwick area boasts some of Queensland’s finest historical sandstone buildings, which were made from local sandstone and now stand today as reminders of their pioneering past. Most of these sandstone buildings were built by Paul’s Great Granfather!!!! Cool… His Grandmother knows everything about it! Known as the ‘Rose and Rodeo City’, Warwick hosts one of Australia’s oldest and most famous rodeos each year in October. The Warwick Rodeo can trace its roots back to 1857 where records indicate the first professional buckjumping contest. Each year riders from around the nation compete for their share of the prize money.

The rodeo was great.. so much fun.. It’s the main event of the town, everyone dresses up for the occasion and wears cowboy hats. Dust, music, drinks (heaps) and food are the main things to have during the rodeo..Paul and I have our first dagwood hotdog !
