WEL­COME TO THE WIN­TER IS­SUE OF THE NORTH EAST TOURIST NEWS 2015.

North East Tourist News - - Welcome -

FROM ski­ing the pris­tine white slopes of our re­sorts, to get­ting cosy be­side an open fire in the North East’s wel­com­ing pubs or restau­rants, the re­gion shows off its di­verse at­trac­tions dur­ing win­ter.

The weather may be cold, but there is still a wide ar­ray of fes­ti­vals and events through­out the sea­son.

Dur­ing the Queen’s Birth­day weekend in par­tic­u­lar, vis­i­tors and lo­cals alike are spoiled for choice.

Wine lovers flock to Ruther­glen for their pop­u­lar Win­ery Walk­a­bout, or head across to the King Val­ley for their Weekend Fit For A King, or the Glen­rowan area for Trails, Tast­ings and Tales.

The weekend also sees lo­cal moun­tains and alpine vil­lages, in­clud­ing Mt Hotham, Falls Creek, Din­ner Plain and Mt Buller, wel­come in the of­fi­cial start to the snow sea­son.

The snow at­tracts many to the re­gion to en­joy a range of ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing ski­ing, snowboarding, to­bog­gan­ing, snow­shoe walks, and après ski so­cial­is­ing.

Vis­i­tors can also find out more about Ned Kelly at the Ned Kelly Weekend in Beech­worth.

It’s al­ways a good idea to drop in to your near­est vis­i­tor in­for­ma­tion cen­tre for help­ful ad­vice on up­com­ing events and other op­por­tu­ni­ties to make the most of your stay, whether it is for a few days or a few weeks.

What­ever the duration, we hope you en­joy your time in our beau­ti­ful part of the world.
