University of Queensland: Botox could save your life

Pretty much what the general public knows about Botox is what we see on the emotionless faces of the rich and famous – but coming out of the University of Queensland is a study that might see Botox save lives.

Wine glass single
The spirit of local wine is captured by the Ballina Fine Wine and Food Festival.

The Ballina Fine Wine and Food Festival will be on again this year on Sunday 12 July 2015 at the Ballina Jockey Club from 11am-5pm. Once you’ve paid your entry fee, you can sample food and wine, and listen to great local music. This is a terrific chance to try the signature dishes of local restaurants, and there will be tasting plates available for purchase.

It will be the first festival in his new role as Ballina RSL Executive Chef for Blake Seymour. Blake will be serving two of his signature dishes in the plate-tasting marquee and you can catch him on the cooking stage at 12.45pm and 3.45pm.

It’s always fun at the Festival to wander around sampling wine, craft beers and ciders. If you like them, you can even buy some to drink on the day, or to take home. It will be a good opportunity to interact with some of our local winemakers and brewers who will share their knowledge at information sessions.

If you’re worried about driving home, just take the buses ($5 return) that are running from Byron Shire and Lismore locations.

For details on tickets see www.ballinafinewineandfoodfestival.com.au

There are two events prior to the Festival Sunday: they are the Taste of Ballina Gala dinner (this event has already sold out, unfortunately!) held at the Ballina RSL on Friday 10 July, and the Flavours of the Northern Rivers Gourmet bus tour for $70 each on Saturday 11 July.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
