Everyone knows that when the warmer weather hits Sydney, we do one of two things. The first is down copious amounts of boozy slushies (naturally). And the second? We flock up and down the coast like no one’s business for all the solid weather adventures ever.
Get on the road with your mates and hit up these events this November in regional NSW.
Ripples Of Love Spring Garden Party
This garden party is the answer to your prayers this spring. The sun is finally up and out and we gotta celebrate this with a feed and some drinks. All proceeds from this event are going towards Ripples of Love, a not-for-profit organisation that gives hampers to families in need. Set in the gorgeous Bowral, they’ve got live entertainment, champagne and a grazing table full of local produce. These are all great reasons to fork over your cash. For more details, head here.
When: Saturday 3 November, 11-2pm
Where: The Southern Highlands, Bowral
Cost: $50 per person

When: Thursday 8 and Friday 9 November, 4-10pm
