All roads now lead to Woolgoolga

THE Easter weather hasn't been totally kind to us, but there is still plenty to see and do as the long holiday weekend winds up today.

And there is no better way to end it than by taking a drive to Woolgoolga where the Curryfest is sure to fire up the foodie in you.

The arrival of 3000 visitors for the Sikh Games has also been a tremendous boost to the region's economy, still struggling to get back on its feet after the floods of two weeks ago.

The two events should, showers permitting, give the Curryfest, of which this newspaper is a proud sponsor, just the right feel.

Great food, from all corners of India as well as Thailand, Singapore, and even Morocco will tantalise any tastebud.

Add the colour and excitement of the dancers, plus the music and this festival is a recipe for success.

Last year approximately 10,000 people enjoyed the third annual Woolgoolga Curryfest.

So in 2009, we hope the fourth annual event will attract even more visitors and the town affectionately known as Woopi to us locals will continue to be seen as the great host for this superb day out.
