Batlow Cider festival Mystery Bus Tour

Saturday the 20th of May the Murrumbidgee Rotary club hosted it’s inaugural Batlow ciderfest bus trip. The trip was an amazing success, raising around $600 for local charities.  

Twenty eight guests left Wagga on two buses bound for the Batlow hills in fairly bleak and cold conditions.  As both the weather and the witty banter warmed up we made our first stop in the historic gold rush town of Adelong for coffee and refreshments.  The convoy then headed on to Batlow and the fantastic Cider Fest.  

The event was run very well with plenty to keep us all entertained, There was a huge range of gourmet food on offer as well as beverages galore. Everything from beer to warm mulled cinnamon flavored apple cider there was something for everyone’s taste.  

The event featured a number of local performers including solo acts, dancers, clowns and rock bands. There were also art and craft stalls to keep everyone entertained.

After the festival finished the tour carried on to Tumbarumba, a small town on the edge of the snowy  mountains to inject some life into one of the rustic old local pubs.

The tour concluded in Wagga with a number of the tourists carrying on the festivities at the Thirsty Crow Brewery.

This adventure just goes to prove how amazing the NSW Riverina is with so many fantastic and diverse events right at our door step.

Teams of students worked together to solve complex every day engineering problems in a number of fields From construction and electrical, to robotics and civil engineering, students had a taste of what a career in the science and engineering fields could be like.
