A look at
one of our past Rock & Mineral fests over the past few years.
Once again our annual Rockfest was a huge success. This Fest has
grown from an idea to get Rockhounds together for a fun-filled
three day campout to a huge event. Stall holders from around
Australia attended this year for the campout. The weather was
perfect and sunny as Queensland mostly is!
A large crowd of spectators visited the Fest to stock up on the
variety of rocks, fossils, and minerals that were available from
the many stall holders. Entertainment was supplied by
local bands, artists demonstrating pottery, gold panning,
cartoon portraits, crystal healers, massage, Reiki and lots
more. This year we enjoyed talks on rocks and minerals by a
famous British geologist on how they were formed by molten lava
from deep below the earth spewed up by volcanic eruptions, and a
Dutch palaeontologist who explained which bone fits where in
prehistoric birds and animals. At night huge campfires were lit
with wine and song by the many Rockhounds attending. The
atmosphere for the weekend was an unbelievably happy one.
We all look forward to next year's Fest on first weekend in
August, 5-6-7th August 2016.
Thank you Rockhounds for making this event the most popular in
Queensland. John & Cecile.
