Day One - Saturday 12 February 2022
Melbourne - Violet Town - Benalla - Yarrawonga
Welcome to our 2 Day Markets & Silos of North Eastern Victoria. Meet at our designated departure point in Melbourne at 8.30am. Here we'll travel to Violet Town in the Goulburn Valley home to one of the best country Victorian markets. We'll spend some time browsing the 230 plus stalls with the opportunity to fill your sisterhood shopping bag with all sorts of goodies.
Lunch can be enjoyed at the market with an array of tasty delights on offer before we continue onto Yarrawonga via Benalla. Benalla is a lovely country town featuring some of Victoria's best Street Wall Art. We'll do a drive through the town spotting many of the talented artist drawings. We'll then continue onto Yarrawonga where we'll check into our hotel, with time to relax before dinner. Yarrawonga, known as the Sun Country on the Murray is aptly named as the Mighty Murray River forms the border between Victoria and New South Wales. Bring your bathers in case the weather is hot! Our hotel has a pool so a perfect way to cool off before dinner tonight at a local restaurant, at own expense.
Overnight - Yarrawonga Central Motel (or similar)
Day Two - Sunday 13 February 2022
Yarrawonga - Tungamah - Devenish - Goorambat - Melbourne (B)
Today we'll enjoy breakfast in the motel and then venture out to browse the many shops along the main street of Yarrawonga including a visit to Rich River Olive Oil store offering the opportunity to fill your Sisterhood Shopping bag with some deliciously fresh locally made produce.
We will continue from there to Chinamans Island Reserve for an easy walk on a well maintained track through typical Australian flora with great views of Mulwala lake. Great photography opportunity with many birds to be spotted while following the signage explaining about the history of the island.
We will enjoy lunch back in Yarrawonga in a local cafe (own expense) before heading off with our coach on a guided Silo Tour. We'll learn the stories behind the murals including the Tungamah Silos which feature Brolgas and Kookaburras and a short distance away the Devenish Silos with their impressive Nurses on display. The final silos we'll be visiting will be at Goorambat where the Country Scene and the Barking Owls depicted will amaze before finally visiting the nearby Goorambat Uniting Church to view the stunning wall art by famous Adnate who's work also adorn many of the walls in Benalla. Spectacular and amazing that in this tiny little hamlet such amazing art can be found.
After our silo viewing and photo opportunities, we'll head back to Melbourne arriving around 7pm.
Thank you for joining us for our latest Mini Break and we look forward to welcoming you back!
