The latest media to be intrigued by the Strange Bird story is Postcards Australia. A crew toured the Granite Belt recently for a segment to be broadcast on Win TV/Channel Nine in June. This self-drive tour through the vineyards of producers of alternative grape varieties has captured the imagination of virtually every wine commentator in the country.

Next week it is Nude Food which is attracting the interest from the Great South East - the popular travel and leisure programme broadcast by Channel Seven.

Nude Food has taken the fancy of Des Houghton who previewed the planned 2010 calendar by Granite Belt foodies in last weekend's Courier Mail. But as Des rightly records, Nude Food is natural. It's all about food that is in region and food that is in season. Nothing rude about at all! The calender is themed Strange Bird meets Nude Food on the Granite Belt.

Participants of these two self-drive trails will be packing up their produce and travelling to Brisbane next month for a spectacular showcase at South Bank on Saturday June 13th. We'll tell you more shortly.
