From here we take a short drive to Angourie where we settle into our accommodation. 2 Night Stay: Angourie Resort


This morning we join a local guide for an on coach town tour. Grafton at this time of year is a canopy of colour with over 5000 Jacaranda trees in full bloom. Enjoy an array of events that Grafton’s Jacaranda Festival has to offer. The longest running floral festival in Australia, the Grafton Jacaranda Festival, is held under canopies of purple blossoms and concludes with the spectacular Grand Float Parade. **Lunch is at own expense today at the festival. Festival program is a guide only and is subject to change.


This morning we visit Raspberry Lookout enroute to Glen Innes where we visit the Land of the Beardies History House and Museum, where local artifacts and memorabilia dating back to the early settlers of Glen Innes are on display. After lunch, we make a short stop at the Standing Stones before continuing on to the Tenterfield Railway Museum for a guided tour. We settle into our accommodation late afternoon in Stanthorpe. 2 Night Stay: The Vines Motel & Cottages, Stanthorpe

We enjoy lunch at O’Mara’s Hotel, built in 1910 on the site of the original single story hotel. Next we are off to enjoy a wine tasting session at Ballandean Vineyard Estate, well known for its vintage red wines.
