At last — a chance to get out in the fresh air and enjoy a glass of wine with friends.

Strathbogi­e Shire Council’s Seniors Festival Reimagined program of events offers people the chance to explore the historic Tahbilk Winery and surrounds.

The Water, Wine Wetlands and Walks event is on Wednesday, October 20, from 10 am to 3 pm.

For just $10, guests can take part in four separate events on the day, including:

● tours of the winery’s historic cellar and museum;

● a guided Taungurung walk through surroundin­g bushland;

● a Goulburn River cruise aboard the Goulburn Explorer; and

● lunch at the Wetlands View Cafe with surroundin­g landscape views.

Strathbogi­e Shire Mayor Chris Raeburn said the event was fantastic value for just $10.

‘‘It is a great way to get out and explore some of our shire’s finest scenery as the weather starts to warm up,’’ he said.

‘‘It is particular­ly important for our senior community, some of whom are isolated and vulnerable, to take this opportunit­y to reconnect after recent lockdowns.’’
