Allora primed for community auction
IT'S time to head to the Allora Showgrounds and drop off your items for the annual community auction - which many call the "biggest auction in the southern hemisphere".
The gates are open to vendors from 8am-5pm today and 8am-4pm tomorrow.
Anything and everything goes - whether it's trash or treasure.
Back from a wet auction in 2013, Allora Show Society president Shirley Cornhill hopes the Queen's Birthday event will be even bigger on a dry weekend.
There will be about 2000 lots at the auction, with a wide range of antiques including carbide lights, watches and clocks, furniture, a monkey tail pump, a German wagon and much more.
Furniture, bric-a-brac, tools, fencing and building materials, workshop equipment and farming machinery including a potato planter will be among the treasures at the auction.
All profits made will go back into the community as well as to charities like the Red Cross, the Allora Historical Society, Glennie Heights Scout Group and more.
Make sure you grab a copy of Tuesday's paper to see all the action from the 2014 Allora Community Auction.
