Spring is one of the best times of year to visit Yass Valley, in the southwest slopes of NSW, as the region brims with exciting spring events, with an event perfect for all ages and interests.
“Spring in Yass Valley is the time for warmer weather, for the arrival of fresh growth, and for visitors to the region to get out and about and enjoy the fresh country air and some fabulous spring events with our locals,” said Georgia Patmore, Acting Tourism and Business Liaison Coordinator Manager for Yass Valley.
“This is the busiest time of year for our events, with everything from local food and wine, to gardens, music and a little history thrown in. There’s an event perfect for any visitor to Yass Valley throughout spring,” Georgia continued.
“In September we have the Irish & Celtic Music Festival in Yass, and in October we showcase the region’s food and cool climate wines at the Murrumbateman Moving Feast , along with music and family entertainment at the Gundaroo Music Festival.
“We round out spring with two heritage events in November, taking a trip back to yesteryear with Classic Yass and the Bowning Country Fair. And food and wine enthusiasts can sip their way through more wines with delicious food and live music at the Hills of Hall Spring Wine Festival.” Georgia concluded.
Yass Valley is located around three hours’ drive from Sydney, and just half an hour from Canberra, and makes the perfect weekend or short break destination. Yass Valley comprises the beautiful country towns of Yass, Binalong, Bowning, Gundaroo, Sutton, Wee Jasper, Bookham, Burrinjuck, Murrumbateman and Wallaroo.
