Annual Holiday Trips
This Club is one of the very few Clubs able to organise very happy Annual Holiday Trips for members.
We started with the 2 Day Canberra Tour in October ‘89 where we visited the Floriade and Bowlie Station, followed by a 4 day trip to Merimbula in 1990. Later an 8 day tour of Broken Hill and districts.
In October 2001, we took off for three days to Canberra to have a look at the Floriade, the Tulip Farm just outside Canberra, Tidbinbilla etc.
In June 2002, we took off on a 2 day-1 night trip to Mudgee for a look at the vineyards and winemaking at it’s best and in October 2003 we took off for the Shoalhaven to visit Coolangatta Vineyards overnight and Arthur Boyd’s Art Gallery at Bundanon and in October 2007 we visited the Hunter Valley gardens. In 2009 a 5 day/6 night trip to Bright in Victoria travelling by train to Albury and return to Sydney.
Such trips allow members to get to know each other better and so providing the means to form firm friendships.
