In memory of Wayne “Jacko” Reithmuller (1968-2015), taken way too soon, and proudly raising funds for St Andrews’s Hospital and the Cancer Council, the annual Pig Races are on again in Quinalow on Saturday 16th October. It is definitely the place to be for a fun-filled family day sporting the Hawaiian theme.
These locals have community spirit running through their veins instead of blood I reckon! There is an influx of visitors taking advantage of the camping grounds opposite the pub. There is colourful merchandise and HUGE smiles on the faces of the punters as they pick their favoured pigs for the lively races.
A wonderful little town with a BIG, BIG heart. It is the hub of the three little communities of Quinalow, Maclagan and Paranga and truly deserves the title of Gateway to the Bunyas. It is conveniently located close to Toowoomba, Highfields and Dalby and Crows Nest. Come and make a weekend of it, or take the interesting drive out and back in a day.
Of course, the biggest hearts are those of Publican Greg Daley and his charming wife, Cheryl, who run the friendliest pub around. The Quinalow Pub is a terrific place to spend a couple of hours and enjoy the feeds, fun and family atmosphere
Are you looking for your Hawaiian regalia already? Tickets are available online, and it will be another year before you get to have this much fun again!
