Swingin' in the Vines

24 June 2022 - 3 days HUGELY POPULAR!

from $1,590* pp twin | $1,890* solo

Aboard the heritage railmotor 621/721, you’ll enjoy the views all the way through the Blue Mountains to Wallerawang where your train heads right onto the former Gwabegar branch. This rarely transited line will take you through Capertee Valley, the second-largest canyon in the world – it’s one kilometre wider than the Grand Canyon! Arriving at the pretty town of Rylstone, you’ll disembark and transfer by road to nearby Mudgee.

Situated on the banks of the Cudgegong River, the town has a rich pastoral history and a colonial gold rush era. We’ll head north to spend the morning in delightful Gulgong, a colonial gold mining town that features around 130 heritage-listed buildings, including Australia’s oldest operating opera house. We’ll then lunch at Augustine’s with long views of the surrounding hills.

Our absolute highlight will be dinner at The Pavilion at Lowe. Set on a rise overlooking a vineyard-filled valley, this spectacular location provides the perfect setting for an evening of fabulous food, wine and performance. Recreating the sound of the Big Band era in a dazzling show, Rat Pack Reloaded will perform iconic hits from the 50’s right through to today such as New York New York, My Way, Feeling Good, It Had Better Be Tonight, Sway, That’s Amore and Fly Me to the Moon.

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