Vic Branch: NORTH BY NORTH EAST! Two-day bus tour

14 September 2019 - 15 September 2019

Join us on an exciting two -day bus tour of northern Victoria.

Tour historic Noorilim and stroll the extensive parkland encountering many ancient exotic trees. Enjoy exquisite views of the grand mansion, reminiscent of a Jane Austen novel. We explore the interior of the home, which is no less impressive.

Enjoy Thornebridge, a fine restoration of a 150-year-old hotel on the banks of the Goulburn River behind one of the largest plane trees in Victoria. We tour the re-creation of the 19th-century garden, it evokes classic formality near the building, yielding to native grasses and Red Gums along the river.

We include a quirky twist to the Saturday night dinner and entertainment. We visit Yathong and Wooleen, both impressive private Edna Walling gardens in Benalla and take in the beautiful Benalla Botanical Gardens.

Sunday lunch is at the Chateau Tahbilk Restaurant overlooking the billabong. The visit includes a guided tour of the mature homestead garden. This is just a taster of the highlights in store on this action packed 2 day tour.

Cost: $450, includes accommodation (twin share), dinner, breakfast, boxed lunch, teas, Sunday lunch at Chateau Tahbilk Restaurant and all entry fees. Single supplement $70. All Entry Fees included.
