Arcadia Farm Art ExhibitionArcadia Farm Art by Katie Chester

During the month of August Slater Homestead will proudly accommodate the creative metal art sculptures of Arcadia Farm Art. 

Goomalling born and bred Katie Chester combines her passion for art with her upbringing on the family farm and the results are magnificent!

“I make all my sculptures from worn out farm parts. I like the idea of taking something that is no longer useful and turn it into something beautiful that puts a smile on your face or warms your heart."

red spider orchidBlood Spider Orchids in bloom

It's August and the Wildflower Season is upon us again!

This deep red Spider Orchid is a striking orchid variety that is found in our area. They are blooming at the moment but with their dark, skinny flowers they can easily be overlooked. Be on the lookout for these and other orchids at the Salmon Gum Way nature reserve (next to the Caravan Park on Throssell St) and at the Oak Park reserve.

Read more about which orchids can be found where in Goomalling.
