The Junior Farmers and Rural Youth reunion was a weekend for catching up with old friends and reminiscing about a bygone era.

These organisations ran from 1950s through to 1980s for young people from rural areas across Queensland.

Over 120 people of all ages packed the Tamrookum Memorial Hall on Saturday 1 April for a dance and memorabilia display.

Sunday 2 April was time for a picnic in Jubilee Park, Beaudesert.

Clubs from around the district were represented, including Tamrookum, Beenleigh and Canungra.

Organiser and former Rural Youth State President, Laurie Dunne said it was a great weekend and the perfect opportunity to reconnect.
