Hold on to your hats – we are off and running!

We have started our new WFT Season with the super successful Launch of Everyday was a Chooseday by local identity Aileen Bradley. 
On Tuesday 19th December (yes, that’s the play on Words chosen for the title) over 65 people shared the introduction of Aileen’s travel guide/ tales, tips and beautiful photographs at the Cobb and Co Museum. 
This armchair adventurers’ treasure is brimming with wonderful yarns, maps and anecdotes for travellers of all types.

Selling very fast, you can grab a copy – free delivery within Toowoomba. ORDER HERE – EVERYDAY WAS CHOOSE DAY

Some fabulous Facebook feedback:

Honoured to attend a truly inspiring book launch celebrating Aileen’s incredible journey through the heart of Australia with her tall handsome husband Gordon.

Aileen unveils a tapestry of memories intricately woven across countless journals. Her dedication to documenting years of travel is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

Aileen’s long career, that required her to be extremely organised and structured, seamlessly translates into these meticulously crafted travel logs. Each page tells a story of passion, discovery, and the beauty found in the diverse landscapes of our country.

It’s not just a book; it’s a colossal testament to a life well-lived, filled with adventure and exploration.

Aileen’s journals offer a passport to many places and experiences untold.

Dedicated to her grandchildren & family.

The event was more than a gathering; it was a celebration of family, friends and to curiosity and discovery. Special thanks to Lyndall Hill from Word Fest Toowoomba
