On Sunday 6th August, the crisp morning air saw 18 cars congregate in the car park of the MiHi Tavern, Brassall for a run that was to be a cruisy trip culminating at a unique eatery in Lowood called the Eagle Rock Café.
From Brassall we drove through Lowood to Gatton for a morning tea of scones and jam at the Staging Post Café at the Lockyer Valley Cultural Centre. Associated with this is the Queensland Transport Museum, which is always worth a visit if you haven’t already been there.
Then, in a leisurley fashion suited to the itinerary, we ventured on via Helidon, Blanchview, Flagstone Creek, Veradilla and Woodlands taking in some lovely country scenery throughout, with just the occasional verge stop for catch-ups.
Soon we arrived in Laidley, where we had lunch at the Eagle Rock Café which is a fabulous 50s rock ’n roll themed bistro with classic burgers (I had a JO’K) and old-style milkshakes. Mmm, delicious! Just like my childhood memories.
All in all a lovely day out with the usual enjoyable company. Thanks Peter & Norma, and to all who attended. What’s that? Oh, my appetite is asking “Can we do the Eagle Rock again some time?” Sure thing!
