Three things to do before the Maidenwell Country Muster

AS THE Maidenwell Country Muster comes closer, it seems everyone is getting excited over the acts.

However, before the muster comes to town, organisers Nigel Squibb and John Whitley want people to ask themselves a few questions.

1. Have you got your accommodation sorted?

"As we have limited caravan camping at Maidenwell, especially for those travelling to the area, you'll want to organise where you'll be staying in advance,” Mr Squibb said.

2. Have you got your transport sorted?

"Our concerns are drink driving, so there will be an enormous police presence here that weekend. We want everyone to be safe, so we've organised busses to come to the muster,” Mr Squibb said.

"Pursers Coaches are the gazetted bus company, contact them directly to organise their seats, because when it's sold out, it's sold out.”

You can contact Pursers Coaches on (07) 4168 1533.

3. Have you bought your tickets?

"We want people to buy their tickets online, because not only do they save some money, but it will also help avoid a build up at the gates,” Mr Squibb said.

There are three ticket options on their Maidenwell Muster website.

These options include the main muster tickets, tickets to a gourmet buffet breakfast that bush balladeers and poets will attend, and then a community breakfast.

Mr Squibb said there is also an old-time dance for $25 each on Mother's Day afternoon.

"There are no online tickets for this, you just turn up on the day and pay there,” he said.

The event will spread across Mother's Day weekend, May 11-12, and will be held at the Maidenwell Sportsground.
