Steiglitz Airing of the Quilts


Everyone was Blown Away
On Sunday 25th October, we had our bi-annual ‘Airing of the Quilts’. It was a very windy day that saw one quilt leap into the trees. Everyone was blown away with the displays, locals to chat to, quilting bees and some great country fare.


Australian Geographic considers it one of the best ‘ghost towns’ in Australia.   Movies & adverts are filmed there.  Government departments deem it so special they create papers & departments to ensure its protection.  

Although the town is under Park’s care, their budget has been cut until it’s virtually non-existent; so the responsibility for our small town has been ours for decades now.    

How do we do it?  Everything from raffles to cake stalls; grants, and events like the ‘Back to Steiglitz Festival & Reunion’.   So popular are these fundraisers we won Australia Day Community Event of the Year, with our last ‘Airing of the Quilts’. 

This little town still exists thanks largely to the efforts of the Back to Steiglitz Association.  If you become a member of this great group Steiglitz will exist because of you too.  www.backtosteiglitz.org.au

With sincere thanks, 
the entire Back to Steiglitz Association, 2015.
