Crow’s Nest – Party, Paella and Pétanque
If you want to head out to Crow’s Nest, make sure you have alternative communication plans as mobile carrier towers are far and few in between – just like neighbours.
Crow’s Nest – Party, Paella and Pétanque – it was a milestone to be remembered and most of all, celebrated!! It was my brother’s quarter of a century celebration and Mum and Dad organised a traditional Spanish Paella. I brought my pétanque set so we could throw some balls around just for fun.
The drive from Brisbane takes around 1.5 hours if you drive via Esk (this was a recommendation from my brother) and it was very picturesque. The road was fine – until we reached Crow’s Nest, but we then had to drive about 5klm’s on a dirt road. The weather was also welcoming so we had no dramas.

Mum made her trademark paella and everyone agreed it was delicious! It was great to spend the day out and away from the city. I imagine living in the country would be very relaxing (if you don’t have too many animals to take care of…)
Finally, I bought my brother a board game we used to play when we were younger – Stratego. But this is the new version – it’s called Stratego Transformers. You can play it normal style or with a Transformer Twist. I let my brother beat me this time as it was his birthday. Well done broski!
We had a great time and it was definitely worth the drive.
