Travel and Accommodation


Being less than a 3-hour drive from Sydney, take time to wander in Queanbeyan-Palerang; a stone's throw from Canberra, but with a distinctive character of its very own.

Roam the lively streets of Queanbeyan, one of the fastest growing inland cities in NSW. Explore the neighbouring towns of Bungendore and Braidwood and the surrounding historic villages nestled amidst picture-perfect scenery. Delight in our rich artisan culture and treat yourself to something special.

Get back to nature with some bushwalking or cycling, then refuel with local food and wine that'll hit the spot.

So come on. Take time to wander.
