APRIL - TENTERFIELD, GOONDIWINDI, PITTSWORTH, HAMPTON BUS TRIP
Date: APRIL 8th-12th (5 days / 4 nights)
We’ll cross the Qld/NSW border to Tenterfield to visit two gardens created by the same designer but quite different garden styles - one a large English style garden and the other a combination of natives, exotics, tree and grasses to compliment the surrounding wild and rugged landscape. On our way to Goondiwindi, we’ll visit a native nursery and olive grove. During a two day stay in Goondiwindi, we’ll learn of the local cotton industry, visit the botanic gardens and several private gardens of varying size and style. A cottage garden with nursery specialising in roses and perennials, lunch at Hampton and a mountain retreat are on the agenda for our homeward journey. Of course, there will be opportunities to purchase plants and explore shops in Tenterfield, Goondiwindi and Hampton.
Cost: $1000 twin share; $1240 single includes coach travel, accommodation, most meals, all entrance fees.
Bookings close 11 March.
