Itinerary

En Route

You’ll get a real taste of Aussie farm life on this small group family-friendly tour. From Sydney you’ll travel through parts of rural NSW and view the lush bush landscape.

Canoelands Orchard

Enjoy a tractor ride through the orchards and learn how the fruit is grown. There are nectarines, plums, peaches, tomatoes and more (seasonal). Between November and January, you can take home your very own stone fruit picks (own expense). You’ll taste-test Aussie honey, plus you can purchase fresh produce from the Canoelands Orchard stall.

Tobruk Sheep Station

Offering a truly authentic experience, Tobruk Sheep Station will immerse you in the Australian bush and to get a taste of life on an outback sheep station. You'll also get to see colourful whip cracking & boomerang throwing demonstrations.

Stockman’s Tucker

At the Drover’s Camp you’ll be treated to traditional stockman’s tucker with billy tea and damper around the campfire. Made and served the old way – straight up – the billy tea is boiled over the campfire, while the damper dough is placed straight onto the embers. While this tucker tastes great, make sure you leave room for lunch.

Sheep Muster

Now you’ll see the amazing patience and skill of the stockman at work with his sheepdog. In order to get the sheep to a particular pen on the property, the stockman directs his canine partner as it moves quickly and expertly among the 50 strong herd. With what looks like effortless skill and speed, the dog will move over, under and around the sheep to achieve his task. Have the camera ready to take a snap when the dog lands himself on the back of a wayward sheep.

Sheep Shearing

The age-old profession of sheep shearing requires a great deal of practice, skill and agility and here you’ll see it first-hand. While seated in the most unique shearing shed in the country, you’ll watch the shearers at work while the life of the shearer himself is unfolded.

Aussie BBQ

After all that excitement, it’s time to enjoy some real Aussie hospitality with a mouth-watering BBQ. Today you’ll be treated to an Aussie grill of steak, green salad and more. Oh, and don’t forget dessert – traditional Aussie Lamington cake – just delicious.

Included Meals: Barbecue Lunch

Tizzana Winery

Your journey through this picturesque region continues when you travel over the Hawkesbury River on the Sackville Ferry to Tizzana Winery. Sample its superb Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Muscat varieties, accompanied by cheese and biscuits.

Windsor

Top off this highlight day with a stop in the colonial town of Windsor. You may like to enjoy afternoon tea in one of the cafés or a drink in Australia’s oldest pub (both own expense). Otherwise, browse through the boutique stores or the local museum, before returning to Sydney.
