Lagoon Brekky A Treat For Green Thumbs And Bird Lovers



Green thumbs and bird lovers with a taste for delicious food will be in for a treat when the annual Breakfast at the Lagoon event returns to North
Rockhampton on Saturday May 25.

A scrumptious barbeque breakfast with a view will be dished up under a large marquee set beside a scenic lagoon, served with a side of bird
watching and expert guest speakers.

Gardening guru Tom Wyatt will speak about organic gardening at the event being held at the Carinity Shalom retirement community.

The man credited with “greening” Rockhampton, Tom wrote the book All Your Gardening Questions Answered and travelled around Queensland presenting at gardening shows and expos.

Breakfast at the Lagoon spokesperson Graham Harvey is excited that the popular gardening expert is presenting at the event.

“Tom possesses a wealth of information on all things plants and is a walking encyclopedia of gardening knowledge. I don’t think there was ever a
gardening question from listeners that he couldn’t answer,” Graham says.

“Breakfast at the Lagoon guests can enjoy the environment at the lagoon with birdwatching, spotting winged wildlife with a telescope with comments
from avian experts, followed by a new kite display over the water.”

Keith Ireland, whose stunning photographs feature in the annual Rotary Birds of Australia Calendar, will speak to guests about birds to be featured in the
2020 calendar raising money for cancer research.

Graham anticipates around 200 people will attend the Breakfast at the Lagoon event, which began almost 20 years ago.

“The lagoon is one of Rockhampton’s hidden little gems and a beautiful and serene backdrop to enjoy an informative morning, a scrumptious breakfast
and chat with good company – all with a great view,” Graham says.

Breakfast at Lagoon is at Carinity Shalom, 121 Maloney Street, North Rockhampton on Saturday May 25 starting at 7.15am.

The cost of the breakfast is $7 for adults and $5 for children under 13 years of age.
