A busy start to Sunday morning at the exhibition. Blue Mountains continues to capture the interest of our visitors.
A trip to the Mountains is still popular!
A fine and warm Sydney day saw a strong resurgence in crowds at the first day of our annual Forestville Exhibition.
With full rooms of quality layouts and displays, together with a strong representation of hobby Traders, there was plenty to keep everyone entertained!
Our Blue Mountains layout was well regarded with many positive comments with the evolution of the layout since it’s debut in 2018.
We’re pleased to say that visitor polling on Day 1 declared Blue Mountains as the people’s favourite today!
