MT TOMAH BOTANICAL GARDENS - 16 APRIL

PRICE $60 PER PERSON

Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens lies on a basalt-capped peak in the beautiful Blue Mountains. Being 1,000 metres above sea level and having rich volcanic soil and a cool climate, makes the site ideal for one of the world's finest collections of cool-climate plants. Mount Tomah is one of the few botanic gardens where plants have been grouped according to their geographical origin. This allows the visitor to see both the similarities and differences between the plants of each region. Today we will enjoy a guided tour of this most beautiful garden. Enjoy the range and presentation of plants from all over the world. Experience the picturesque and expansive views across the valleys and ranges of the northern Blue Mountains. Relax and soak up the beauty that abounds in the many themed areas and dedicated walks taking you past the rhododendrons of the Himalayas and western China and the giant lobelias of Mount Kenya to name a few. We will enjoy morning tea at the gardens and lunch today will be at The Richmond Club

GEORGES RIVER CRUISE

MONDAY 21 MAY 2018

Traveling to Sans Souci wharf where our cruise vessel awaits. Today we will enjoy a wonderful three hour cruise on the picturesque waters of the Georges River. The river rises to the south-west near the coal mining town of Appin, and then flows past Campbelltown, Liverpool, past suburbs such as East Hills, Lugarno, Bangor and Blakehurst, before emptying into Botany Bay at Taren Point. The Georges River flows through a very varied landscape from the almost fully urbanised lower coastal reaches through to the steep sided heavily wooded upper reaches. The Cruise follows the paths of the original explorers George Bass and Mathew Flinders as we pass by the modern day suburbs of Oatley, Como, Sans Souci, Brighton, and see the million dollar homes in Sylvania waters. Why not join us for a pleasant and relaxing cruise along the Georges River and Botany Bay, enjoying a lovely lunch of Fish and Chips or Ham and Chicken salad (with a lovely dessert) while watching the houses and bushlands of Australia's birthplace slide by. (Menu may change)

Price: $70.00 person - includes Luxury Coach Travel, Cruise and Lunch.
