Pete’s Hobby Nursery is a well-established small nursery specialising in shrubs, trees and plants, including rare and endangered species. (For sale at reasonable prices!). We will have a cuppa while Pete explains his philosophy and nursery and he will also take us on a short easy walk to the adjacent Brisbane Valley Rail Trail where he has planted 5500 species along the old rail track. Much more information is at

We will have lunch locally (at own cost) at the Club Hotel Motel advertised as "A real pub, just like you remember". In the afternoon, we will join a local for a guided walk around Lowood Township using the Lowood Heritage Trail Walking Guide.
