Community & Business

22 June, 2022

Businesses come together for a cause

THE wider community has benefited from a group of local business owners who banded together at Yungaburra's Little Eden restaurant recently for the Wild River Mountain Distillery rum release.


Lucky prize winners on the day were Sasha Bucknell, who won two nights at Treetops Sanctuary, Malanda, from property owner, Jo Murphy and Briana Eaton who won gift packs from Wild River Mountain Distillery owner, Wes Marks (back) and Crater Mountain Coffee owner Lucy Stocker and a dinner for two from Little Eden.

Not only did the event promote local products and services and raise awareness of the Tablelands as a visitor destination, it raised much needed money for crisis and emergency support agency, the Women's Centre Atherton. 

Guests travelled from as far as Mareeba, Cairns, Einasleigh and even Brisbane to attend a food and gin pairing afternoon, in an elegant, yet relaxed environment, complete with live music.

Lake Eacham beekeepers, Tom and Chloe Bidner enjoyed a family day out with Jayne and Jacob Bidner from Wongabel.
Brisbane/Yungaburra based couple Marshall Irwin and Louise Vaughan caught up with good friend Grant Manypeney of Mareeba over tapas and gin tasting.
Locals Lachlan Rogers and June Sheppard were joined at Little Eden by Cairns friends, Penelope and Enzo Binotto.
Sisters, Cassandra Larkin and Danielle Blackman enjoyed an afternoon out in perfect Tableland weather.
Autumn Santiago of Atherton, Lachè Reid and Sasha Bucknell had a lovely day at Yungaburra's Little Eden restaurant.
Newcomers to the area, Christian Anderson and Claire Taylor of Malanda, enjoyed chatting with Mandy Scott of Millstream Springs Stud, Millaa Millaa.
