Cutting the Ribbon – Kristie Bazley and Shawn Ashford cafe managers, Peter Homan CEO Southern Queensland Country and James Naumann publicity officer Highfields Pioneer Village.
The grand opening of the new Bushranger Cafe at 10am on the 21st September 2019 at the Highfields Pioneer Village was a resounding success with over 60 people attending!
The new Cafe serves amazing coffees, milkshakes and grilled sandwiches with a twist; all named after our infamous bushrangers. The café incorporates art by Australian artists hanging on its walls and is now open to the public every day from 10am to 4pm. Café manager Kristie Bazley
says “tickets to the Pioneer Village will be optional but we hope that café patrons will support the Village and the services the café provides will encourage existing Pioneer Village patrons to stay longer as well”.The Pioneer Village attracts over 38,000 tourists annually and many visitors are longing for something to eat after having travelled for hours to look through the Village which now has over 70 buildings of historic interest.
Kristie says “the traditional Billy Tea and Damper will still be available everyday and for those craving their cappuccino and cake fix we will certainly be here (in the café) to help you!”.
Artworks by David Harriman and Jody Ashford are on display for the Pioneer Village’s annual Steampunk Festival which will run over Carnival of Flowers Week from the 20th to the 29th of September 2019.
