North East Tourist News - - Albury/Wodonga -

FROM fungi to beer, and roasts to sausages, the Bonegilla Mi­grant Ex­pe­ri­ence has some­thing for every­one this au­tumn.

Beer brew­ing and sausage mak­ing work­shops will be held on Sun­day, March 20 to co­in­cide with the North East Food and Wine Fes­ti­val.

The Art of Beer Brew­ing will be led by the brewers of Cheeky Peak, or you can learn from the masters in the Art of Sausage Mak­ing and Meat Smok­ing work­shops.

For some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, a fungi work­shop on Satur­day, May 14 will ex­plore the ed­i­ble, med­i­cal and mytho­log­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics of fungi.

Fol­low­ing lunch, join the hunt for lo­cal fungi species.

Sun­day roasts re­turn to Bonegilla just in time for Mother’s Day on Sun­day, May 8.

The event cel­e­brates a tra­di­tional Aus­tralian meal and dis­cusses what migrants stay­ing at the cen­tre thought of the menu.

Other Sun­day roast events will be held on July 24 and Septem­ber 4.

Any­one who hasn’t vis­ited the Bonegilla Mi­grant Ex­pe­ri­ence in re­cent months will also find sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments to the her­itage-listed site.

The for­mer mi­grant train­ing and re­cep­tion cen­tre has un­der­gone a $760,000 re­de­vel­op­ment to bet­ter tell the story of the more than 320,000 peo­ple who passed through its doors.
