Get your Christmas shopping out of the way at local markets, enjoy some adrenaline charged action or spend the night with some queens. It’s all happening in Ipswich this November. Thanks to our friends over at Discover Ipswich for sharing this list.
The Australian Medium Tour
Charmaine Wilson is a world-renowned Australian medium, who has been recognised for her skill and compassion since awakening to her gift in 1999.
She was the winner of Channel Seven’s inaugural season of The One, and was also honoured as Queensland Psychic of the Year in 2008 and Australian Psychic of the Year in 2005.
Charmaine tours extensively around the country, and runs workshops all year long.
She has lived through a lot of heartache in her life, including the death of her brother and her four-year-old daughter, both to tragic accidents. Her mother passed in late 2006.
These deaths have made her a most compassionate and understanding reader, especially in relating to how her clients may be feeling.
