Next event: 15 July 2018
Join me for a 15km walk along Brisbane Valley Rail Trail!
In the spirit of getting out and about I’m putting the call out for lots of lovely ladies to join me for a walk through the beautiful Queensland countryside.
I’ve signed up for the 15km fundraising walk for Diabetes Queensland along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. On the walk you’ll get to experience the view that the old train commuters enjoyed back in the day when it was a bustling railway line.
Last year I cycled the BVRT and fell in love with its rolling golden fields, bridges and dales (and best of all, fairly flat).
Register before 30 May to get early bird rates!!
What: Walk 15km from Fernvale to Pine Mountain
When: Sunday 15 July 2018, 8am start.
The start point for those registered for the 15km walk will be the Fernvale Futures Complex Information Centre (1483 Brisbane Valley Hwy, Fernvale).
Make your own way to the start point on the day of the event. Participants are encouraged to organise their own transport from Pine Mountain at the end of the event, back to their vehicles. For those who are unable to make their own way back to their vehicles at the conclusion of the event, organisers will assist you back to your vehicles.
Where: Fernvale to Pine Mountain, along the scenic BVRT
Cost: early bird $30 until 31 May (then $40), you are also expected to fundraise)
Included: lunch is provided
Bring: comfy walking shoes, hat, sunscreen, water, energy snacks, lightweight rain jacket, insect repellent, camera, sense of adventure and a big ol’ smile
HOW TO REGISTER: email firstname.lastname@example.org and specify you want to sign up for the 15km walk. They will send you registration and payment details.

I’m using this walk as a reason to boost my fitness, I’ve joined the gym and everything! 2 months to get fit!
I know a couple of you have already signed up which is awesome!
Let me know if you’re joining so we can find you at the start.
Cheers and Eat Well Travel Often

Dinner at Asana by Pete Evans
The first Eat Well Travel Often Event for 2016 was an amazing dinner at Asana by Pete Evans in Brisbane’s CBD.
Just a quick note to say thank you for putting on a great event at Asana. I’d been interested to try it for a while and was so happy to get the opportunity to go along to your event. The other ladies who attended were all lovely and it was a really great night. The food was definitely the highlight though – so yum! Looking forward to attending some of your other events. Jaylene

We teamed up with the lovely Aimee from Primal Living for a scrummy afternoon of Paleo cooking, tasting and chat.
Day Trip to Maleny Real Food Festival – 12th September 2015
Thanks for such a great day Shannon. Having the mini bus organised and the opportunity for a ‘no-driving-eat-drink-and-be-merry’ day was fantastic.Turns out I was more interested in the talks hosted by the University of Sunshine Coast than all the yummy food. I was fascinated by the social and sustainability aspects of ‘real food’. I may have had two Belgium hot chocolates, a freshly roasted coffee by the barista co-op, a brekky juice combo, yummy Indian lunch. And a craft ginger beer. Book me in for next year! What’s our next adventure? Jane
“Enjoyed a delicious Native High Tea with a group of divine women on the weekend. The event, at Tukka’s in West End was organised by Eat Well, Travel Often and included a fascinating talk by the chef and owner. Something fun and a little bit different. Great way to spend a lazy Sunday morning! Thanks, Shannon – can’t wait for your next event!” Deb
