Orana – Residents get crafty for hilltop markets

November 2018 | ,

The South Burnett hills came alive with the sound of music and festive activities this month when Orana Retirement Living and Aged Care hosted its popular Hilltop Market.

The market was an opportunity for the Kingaroy community to come together with residents and enjoy 30 stalls, food, kids’ face painting, entertainment and lots and lots of bargains.

Residents were selling their crafts, home made jams and relishes and plants alongside local businesses.

Visitors could also soak up the picturesque Bunya Mountain outlook which Orana enjoys.

Orana General Manager Kym Zischke said it was a great initiative.

“The residents love our markets – it gives them access to food and craft from local businesses and provides them with community interaction,” she said.

“This is our eighth year holding the Hilltop Markets and we couldn’t be happier with how Kingaroy embraces it and our little community here.”
