from $1,990* pp twin

Join us for a thrilling, fascinating and unique journey to the Riverina by heritage CPH railmotor. Introduced in the 1920s, the railmotors were often referred to as ‘Tin Hares’, having evolved at the same time as the mechanical lures used in greyhound racing.

From Griffith, we’ll head for Temora for a spectacular day out at the Warbirds Downunder airshow at the Temora Aviation Museum. With VIP seating and lunch included, your day will be jam-packed with action, in the air and on the ground, getting up close and personal with the planes and their history. It’s a spectacular day out which ends perfectly with the delicious cuisine at Zecca Handmade Italian, where the restaurant’s authentic recipes are generations old.

Our weekend away then continues further west. The Hay Plains is a vast expanse of flat land, studded with saltbush, rising just 17 metres from the highest to the lowest point. It’s the flattest place in the southern hemisphere. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to see.

For a start – the views are breathtaking. In Hay, we’ll visit the fascinating Dunera Museum. Housed in the former Hay Railway Station, it tells the story of over 6,000 German, Italian and Japanese civilian internees and Prisoners of War who were kept in three Prison Camps at Hay between 1940 and 1946. Our exclusive lunch will be on the platform of the station, where the last train departed in 1975.

Discover Bishop’s Lodge, an extraordinary 1888 iron house surrounded by a historic garden featuring a remarkable collection of heritage roses. At the 1878 built Hay Gaol you’ll view an intriguing collection of artefacts from antique windmills to Australia’s oldest known bark canoe. We’ll also visit Shear Outback where you’ll meet the shearers, shedhands and dogs who work in the wool industry and even take part in a live shearing demonstration.

There simply isn’t another tour like this one!
