New romantic picnic pods launch for Valentine’s Day

Imagine a romantic setting for you and your beau, the sunset showering you in golden light as you swing in your hanging picnic pod.  You graze on a gourmet picnic and indulge in each other’s company while soft music fills the countryside.  That’s the new product that The Soul Nook Collective’s owner Taryn Ryan has dreamed up in her range of styled picnic products.

Taryn has gained many fans with her beautiful Boho-styled bell tent picnics and new shop in Marburg where she sells eclectic items like fashion, homewares, local artisan wares and organic coffee.

The pod picnics are a decadent experience that includes a gourmet picnic, styling and beautiful country setting and the new date night experience is being launched on Valentine’s Day.

The Soul Nook Collective has used funding from the Ipswich City Council’s Exceptional Experience’s program to purchase three new Tipi picnic pods.

QPSR road to recovery

Ipswich’s Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway is set to re-open this month after being closed for renovations.   The works included structural upgrades to the souvenir shop, rest rooms and platform – which is being extended to double its length and also increasing its usability for those with mobility issues.  The steam train rides often sell out, with the themed dinner trains and kids’ Santa trains the most popular products.

In a tumultuous year, a cash injection from the Ipswich City Council to help the project was welcomed.
