My impression of the 2013 Jane Austen Festival Australia

Gorgeous Georgian!
I spent last weekend at the 2013 Jane Austen Festival Australia, starting on Thursday night with a potluck super and catch-up with friends, then onto, seminars, dance classes, cooking classes, bonnet workshops, an evening of roast beef and Regency entertainment, the Grand Napoleonic Ball and the Collition Ball, plus a visit to Lanyon Homestead, a picnic, a fair, concerts and much, much more. It was a blast! If you've never visited the Festival I highly recommend it.

I really love this Festival, its only a 3 hour drive away, is packed with activities and everyone is soooo friendly!

So here are some photos of my time at the Festival.
