Art and Craft
Starting at Loftus Oval, we will
travel south through the National Park to Stanwell Tops for morning tea at Articles Fine Art Gallery
Coffee Shop, and then browse through the arts and crafts.
After a leisurely stop there, we will travel
south to Albion Park,
up Macquarie Pass and on to Robertson to the Farm Gate Lavender Farm.
At 1.00pm there will be a tour of the lavender farm and
winery, including wine tastings. A BBQ or picnic lunch will be available for $15/head, and
depending on the weather, the lunch will either be in the winery itself or on
the deck. The lavender farm cater for group bookings only (ie,
lunches are not available for individuals calling in on the off-chance of something to
eat), therefore you must let them know how many in our party for catering.
