IT WAS a Jacaranda fashion parade with a difference, as the new model cars were placed with a different set of models on Friday night.

The Jacaranda Fashion parade filled the showroom of Grafton Motor Group in a change of venue for the annual event, which not only shows off the latest in local fashion houses, but also shows off the junior and senior Jacaranda candidates to the wider community.

The 100-strong crowd was greeted with a free champagne and canapes on arrival, and sat either side of a special purple runway for the candidates, and a few extra guest models.

Fashions ranged between summerwear, casualwear and formalwear on the night.



Free camping crackdown will pay for itself with fines

One of the best free camp sites in Australia this morning, Sunday, 1 May 2011.  The only problem with it is that it is on the northern end of Sunshine Beach in Noosa National Park, at least 500 metres from the nearest public loo. Plenty of laws against this, but no enforcement at all.
