Road tripping: A flying trip


9am to 10am

If you’re able to take it easy, make a booking for a farm tour at Wollundry Grove Olives on your way to Junee to see how 2000 olive trees create award winning extra virgin olive oils. Then watch as licorice is made at the Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory – you won’t be able to leave without some samples!

10.45am to 12pm

In Cootamundra, visit Bradman’s Birthplace then take The Captains Walk, celebrating Australian test cricket.

1pm to 2.30pm

Find a place for lunch in Temora’s CBD before visiting the flying machines at the Temora Aviation Museum. The Temora Rural Museum will have you saying ‘I remember that!’ as you’re transported back in country life.

3.30pm to 5pm

Coolamon Cheese serves up the best selection of cheeses this side of France – savour a few, then take your pick home to share with friends. The Up-to-Date Store Cultural Precinct gives you a feel for how the general store was the hub of community life and don’t forget the Coolamon Fire Museum!

Plenty of time to bring all your goodies back to Wagga for dinner.
