If I were to write a list of my favourite things, somewhere near the top you’d find driving on country roads and honesty boxes. We discovered a real treasure trove of old-fashioned roadside stands up on Mt. Tambourine the other week, and if you haven’t been to that part of the Gold Coast Hinterland for a while, this is the time to go. The pretty chocolate box cottages with their gardens dripping in wisteria are out of this world. We may still be waiting on our jacarandas back in the city, but up in the hills, big bunches of rhubarb and posies of ranunculus are the surest sign I’ve seen that Spring is well and truly here.
