Nude Food Calendar - July revealed

From the coolest place in Queensland that brought you Strange Bird, and then Nude Food....Stanthorpe is about to combine these two quirky identities into a 2010 photo calendar.

Each month is themed, and the recent community photo competition organised by Granite Belt Wine & Tourism Inc (GBWT) called for images that reflected that theme.

Photos taken in Queensland’s Granite Belt have been judged with the top 12 finding a place in the new Strange Bird meets Nude Food on the Granite Belt calendar which is now in production. Strange Bird is the name for the region’s alternative wine trail, and Nude Food for its self-drive food trail.

GBWT has revealed only one winning photo, the remainder will be kept under wraps until the calendar launch on Sunday 23rd August. July was themed Brass Monkey Season and it the winning photo has been revealed. Stanthorpe is known as the coldest place in Queensland and Brass Monkey Season® is the successful winter tourist promotion which runs each year in June, July and August. Photographer Dennis Marsden has given the Brass Monkey a little winter cheer, with an award-winning bottle of Granite Belt Shiraz.

The calendar will be available for sale at the launch and from the Stanthorpe Visitor Information Centre with all proceeds being reinvested to promoting the Granite Belt.
