Brinkworth’s annual Town Garage Sales Day was a roaring success this year, with the most stalls of any time in its six-year history and crowds of visitors from Port Clinton, Auburn, Mundoora and Gladstone, as well as neighbouring towns, thronging the streets.

An eclectic mix of items was for sale, including a camper, native artefacts from Papua New Guinea, pressed tin ceiling panels, homemade preserves, plants, clothing and other bric-a-brac.

By wandering between sites you could buy ducks or hens, fencing materials to contain them and bags of wheat to feed them!

And to feed yourself, you could buy a sit-down meal and coffee at the cafe or sizzling sausages, cake or biscuits from various stalls.
