THE Moncrieff Theatre was the place to be this week, where hundreds of the state's best cooks, crafts-folk and all-round giving community members gathered for the Queensland Country Women's Association state conference.

About 400 women congregated in Bundaberg for the annual conference, which featured three full days of activities for the busy women.

State president Jennie Hill said it was the first time in a long time the conference had been held in the rum city.

"It's all gone very well," she said.

"It's been very successful - the displays and things the ladies have had in the Civic Centre have been wonderful."

Mrs Hill said some of the highlights of the three days included discussions about the QCWA's Ruth Magazine - a joint publication with APN News and Media - which was produced 12 months ago and now has an increasing readership.

She said also discussed was the success of the QCWA's Public Rural Crisis Fund, which distributed food vouchers and store credit to almost 400 families affected by this year's floods.

The state conference is expected to wrap up today following the group's annual meeting.
