Swing into Spring

27 September 2022 - 3 days LAST SEATS!

from $1,690* pp twin | $1,990* solo

Aboard the 1961 built rail motor 621/721 we’ll head for Robertson and enjoy lunch at the Robertson Public House with time afterward to explore and perhaps visit the local cheese factory. We’ll then return to Moss Vale and transfer to our hotel, the lovely Gibraltar Hotel in Bowral. Join your fellow travellers tonight for drinks and dinner at the hotel.

On our full day in the Southern Highlands, we’ll visit the Tulip Time gardens in Bowral with time at leisure to explore the town. Later, visit Retford Park, built in 1887 by Samuel Hordern. Bought in 1964 by James Fairfax, he established a garden that features a magnificent collection of evergreen and deciduous trees, some very rare and unique, set amongst a patchwork of hedged gardens showcasing everything from a detailed knot garden to swimming pool, pavilion and sculptures.

The absolute highlight of this tour will be our exclusive dinner and show at Centennial Vineyards – an evening of fabulous food, wine and entertainment. In a dazzling show, Boys in the Band will perform iconic hits from the 50’s right through to today from Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, Elvis, the Bee Gees, Johnny O’Keefe, Queen, Jackson 5, The Beatles, John Farnham…and many more!

On our way home we’ll enjoy the spectacular views as the railmotor descends the escarpment for Unanderra before travelling north along the South Coast.

We guarantee you’ll be singing the whole way home!
