Shoalhaven Winery Trip

Following on from the great success the overnight trip to Orange proved to be back in March – such positive feedback received from those who went – the Club is tentatively arranging an overnight trip to Nowra on 2-3 September for members.

Come along and enjoy a scenic drive, some delicious food, visits to a couple of wineries and a distillery, an overnight stay and of course each other’s company!

The indicative schedule is along the lines of the following:

- Saturday 2 Sept: 8.30am or so … depart Canberra as a group and either go up the highway or via Batemans Bay, enjoy a morning tea stop along the way, or make your own way, and reach Cambewarra Estate at Bangalee ( for lunch and a tasting flight of 4 wines. ($20.00pp for wine tasting)

- Saturday after lunch – visit the Silo Estate winery ( and enjoy a tasting ($15.00pp); and / or the Tara Distillery ( ) for gin and/or whiskey tasting and tour of the distillery ($5.00pp).

- Saturday evening, 7:30pm – dinner at Ponte Bar and Dining, Nowra, ( or a set menu depending on numbers) a four minute walk from the hotel Pleasant Way River Lodge, Nowra ($165.00 – Executive Queen room, safe internal courtyard parking)

- Sunday 3 Sept morning – breakfast or brunch TBA

Sunday - return at your own pace. If coming down the coast road to Batemans Bay you may like to have lunch at Cupitt’s winery at Ulladulla – great food and usually live music on Sundays.

We currently have 10 rooms at the Pleasant Way River Lodge booked, so first in … please note, availability at the various hotels/motels is quickly becoming limited for this weekend. This event will be lightly subsidised by the Club.

Please contact the club at if you're interested in joining the event to check on availability.

Really looking forward to a fun weekend!
