Here’s cheers as Gecko Valley Winery celebrates birthday

GECKO Valley Winery barely resembles the same small cafe it began as 15 years ago.

Celebrating its birthday at the weekend, co-owner Colleen McCray reminisces about the humble beginnings.

"We did this for Central Queensland to come, unwind and enjoy the experience," she said.

"We started with a very small menu and four tables."

Lasting the distance is a testament to the hard work and perserverance of the McCray family, who have plenty more goals to achieve.

"We want to thank everyone who has supported us," she said.

The team at Gecko Valley Winery celebrated the milestone with a 2007 vintage sparkling Bordeaux and birthday cake with customers, family and friends.
