Wineries Exploration: Half Day Drive

Shopping and Markets

It is easy to claim you’ve been to the famous mega-wineries around our country, but no wine journey is complete without a visit to the smaller, family-run wineries and Queanbeyan-Palerang is home to three hidden gems, punching way above their weight in the grape stakes.

Set within the rolling hills of nearby Wamboin and Bywong are a true representation on what artisan wine-making is all about. Perfect destinations for a day of winery exploration, they showcase cool climate wines reflecting the terroir of the region. Have a taste, buy a case and maybe take a glimpse at their menu – all three have onsite dining with spectacular views across the vineyards.
