Well we must be getting close to getting on the road. We certainly feel like a good trip is in order.

We have a couple of ideas in mind and we’d love to hear your thoughts.

One plan we have is the Griffith Spring Festival. Yep, winter is bearing down, which means we can start thinking about spring!

Now, if you not heard of the Griffith Spring Festival, you might not be alone. Some of us in the office knew all about it, others (me, Guy the website guy) had never heard of it, but it sounds like a hoot.

Where else in the world could you sit in a Toyota made of oranges? Or a play a piano, made of oranges? Or take a selfie in front of a castle, made of…..yep, oranges? It’s all at the Citrus Sculpture exhibit and just part of the festival.

So What Is The Plan?

Given travel restrictions, nothing is set in pectin right now, but the idea is a four-day trip, heading over to Wagga (Wagga Wagga if you don’t favour the brevity thing) for night one. Then two nights in Griffith and the last in Young or Cowra.

Along we way, we will stop at the Junee Rail Museum, see the amazing painted silos around Narrandera, Grenfell and Weethalle while driving through the surreal yellow rolling farmlands during canola flowering. It’s a great time of the year and a beautiful region of NSW.

Dates:

16th-20th October.

Cost:

Unsure, but in line with our other tours 4 day tours.

And the Cool Thing Is:

If you have your $250 Seniors Travel Card, you can use this to go towards the trip.

The Planning:

The event in Griffith itself is still in the planning, so we cannot offer complete details. The organisers have stated, given the pandemic, they are in the process of finalising an alternate format that will still allow our followers to experience the festival in some way. 

Expressions of Interest:

Please let us know if you are interested in this one. We won’t take deposits until we sort pricing, but this form will get you a place in the queue.
