Art and Craft run South

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.
