MARCH MUST DO’S: WHAT TO DO IN THE HIGHLANDS THIS MONTH
Oh heeyyyyyy autumn, we are very happy to see you and more than ready for your cooler evenings and crisp mornings.
Bring. It. On.
Our Event Directory is bursting at the seams with fabbo stuff to see, do, experience, laugh at, learn about and check out in March – nearly 200 events (and counting) so far!! Stacks of awesome things happening locally. Not sure where to start? Start right here with our March Must Do’s…
GO TO THIS // Moss Vale Show and Robertson Show
Two of our local country shows are on this month. Head to the Robbo Show 8-9 March and Mossy Show 15-17 March for some good old-fashioned country show fun. Wood chopping, ute musters, sideshow alley, cake comps, art exhibitions, chook washing… you name it, these shows have got it!
DRINK THIS // Artemis Wine Dinner at Bistro Sociale
What happens when a fab new local restaurant partners with a funky, local winery? The Artemis Wine Dinner at Bistro Sociale is what happens! Four gourmet courses paired with delicious local wines…that’s our idea of a fun and tasty night out.
EAT THIS // Dumplings at The Mill
We need dumplings in our lives. Lots of dumplings. All of the time. Head to The Mill Café on the first and third Friday of the month for Dumplings and Beer, a super relaxed night of sipping craft beer and chowing down on Billy Chan dumplings and more. Oh, and you might have been living under a burger bun if you haven’t heard about Oporto opening up in Mittagong next week! Just gotta go…
BOOK THIS // A round of golf at your favourite local course
Autumn has the perfect weather for hitting the fairways of The Highlands. Head to Locals Day at Bowral Golf Club on the last Sunday of every month or take part in their 12 hole competition on Friday afternoons until March 22. Click here for an article we popped together about local golf courses – you’ll be sure to find a course to suit you and your skill level. And cheers to the 19th hole, we say!
ENTER THIS // Wine Harvest Feast Competition
Have you jumped on this yet? We’re giving away two tickets to this fabulously quintessential Highlands event! Head to our Facebook page here and tell us in 25 words or less who you would love to sit next to at a long lunch and why! Pop your answer in the comments by 4 March to be in the running to wine….oops, we mean win!
EXPERIENCE THIS // Retford Park Wellness Weekend
We’re excited about the Rhythm of Life, a two day community wellness festival in the surrounds of one of the most stunning places in The Highlands. Demos, workshops and presentations from a whole lot of wellbeing experts….definitely the place to get your om on....(just make sure you pre purchase your tix online for the Sat night).
BUY THIS // BDCU
Our local BDCU Alliance Bank have got a cracking new Big Local Home Loan Special happening right now – it’s an interest rate that starts with a 3! Pretty good, right? If you’re in the market to buy your own home and you’re not sure where to start, give the team a call.
WATCH THIS // Bowral Autumn Music Festival
It doesn’t matter if you don’t know your Bach from your Beethoven, there is something for everyone at the Bowral Autumn Music Festival – international soloists, leading Australian ensembles, fresh new classical talent and there’s even a kids’ concert – go to one performance or get your classical music fix and go to all 9 concerts!
MAKE THIS // Artisan Cheese-Making Classes
How good is cheese? We love cheese here at The Fold and quite fancy the idea of making our own! Join Lucy in the kitchen of her family’s beautiful permaculture farm outside of Mittagong to learn how to make feta. Mmmmmm…..feta.
CELEBRATE THIS // International Women’s Day
This important day celebrates women across the globe and there are a number of events happening locally. Check them all out here.
LEARN THIS // How to communicate with your horse
A horse is a horse of course, of course…..but how do you communicate with it if it doesn’t have the vocabulary of Mr Ed? This three hour workshop is for lovers of all things equine keen to understand and converse with their horse. Super cool!
LAUGH AT THIS // Jimeoin at the Mittagong RSL
One of Ireland’s funniest exports and Australia’s most popular comedians, Jimeoin is bringing his wickedly dry sense of humour to the Highlands on March 23. This is expected to sell out, so don’t dilly dally! All the details are here. You might need Depends for this one, people.
