The Beef, Bells & Bottletrees Festival
The Tea Ladies were invited to the 'Beef, Bells & Bottletrees Festival' in Miles, Queensland. Weary as they were from their travels, they recognised the great honour bestowed upon them & in true county woman style, popped on some lipstick & put their best foot forward.
The Large Polly Costumes designed & made by each CWA group, were exhibited in an historical CWA hall at the festival. Towns included - Ballarat, Learmonth, Forbes, Narromine, Coonabarabran, Thallon Daymar, Mitchell, Roma & Miles. (see Large Polly's below)
