2019 Rural Women's Gathering in Strathalbyn

Registrations for the 2019 SA Rural Women's Gathering in Strathalbyn are now open.

Each year a community in South Australia organises the gathering that brings together women of all demographics and from all regions.

Held this year from October 11-13, the theme is Connect, Inspire, Discover.

Event committee chairwoman Leonie Broadbridge said the theme was adopted later than usual, but they wanted to keep it simple.

"Connect is for connecting women with other women from other regions and with our community," she said.

"You can be inspired by the guest speakers...and discover what this region has to offer."

She said there were 80 different options for workshops and activities over the weekend, and the most popular ones as voted when registering would be adopted by the committee for the event.

She said things on offer would include crafting workshops, tours and bus excursions, a ride on a paddle steamer down the river, visiting the Langhorne Creek wine region, a cemetery and history tour, flower essence remedy making and using horses as a therapy tool.

"There are all these amazing things....it ranges from belly dancing to bees, or worms in your garden, to worms in your sheep," she said.

Only 220 openings for the event were made available and Ms Broadbridge said about 70 were left, with another 80 day passes still available.

Next year's gathering is planned for Peterborough and the 2021 event is set to be in Streaky Bay.

"It all depends on the community getting behind the girls organising it," said Ms Broadbridge.

The gathering was last held on the Eyre Peninsula in 2017 at Cleve.
