During the Autumn Equinox its grape picking time in the Southern Highlands so we celebrate the wine harvest at the award winning Far Ago Hill Vineyard in Canyonleigh.

Feast on a gastronomic exploration of locally grown produce as we enjoy the warm afternoon sunshine, relaxing music, great conversation and breath-taking views this property affords.

This is an annual event so numbers are limited and booking early is recommended.

Cost is $175 per person, all-inclusive food, wine and entertainment.



Saturday 22nd June 2019

After our sold-out event in 2018 our Winter Solstice Feast is back.

Celebrating the horned hunter as he is reborn during Winter Solstice, this feast menu is designed around a whole beast cooked slowly with fire. Get ready for a winter culinary adventure with local wines, storytelling, wassailing, fire-side music and revelry as we bring to life our own local Highland ritual.

Expect a forest feast with Celtic, Nordic and Highland history, woven in. Rug up for dinner cooked by fire to warm your heart, music and tales told by creatives as the days shorten and nights grow cold and misty. Prizes for ‘Best in Feast’ attire so get your costume ready.

This is a kid friendly event.

Tickets go on sale on Friday 1st February 2019.
Location is Meryla State Forest Werai and a map will be sent to you before the event.



Saturday 21st September 2019

Spring Equinox is here and we rejoice a season of new life with our feast for those with love in their hearts. The perfect date night for lovers or venture out solo if you are looking for someone special. Who knows who you might meet with Aphrodite in the air?

And if you think this is another Valentine’s dinner or RSVP event, think again - it's Spring Equinox so think the Garden of Eden meets Love Boat with a twist of Alice in Wonderland!! Not suitable for kids under 18 years.
